Media Player module

Media Player logoThe Media Player Module is a module for Moodle 1.9 that deploys the JW Player, allowing teachers to make full use of its rich media handling features. With very little technical knowledge, teachers can deploy audio, video, play lists, slide shows, etc. and provide a high degree of interactivity for learners while providing lesson notes, transcripts and downloads all on the same page. MoodleNews.com published an article about it. It is also currently the only way for non-developers to deploy video for iOS (iPhone and iPad) in Moodle.

It does the following:

  • Deploys FLV, MOV, MP4, F4V and other web video formats and supports H.264 AVC
  • Supports a range of plugins and manages their settings to make using the Media Player module as easy as possible
  • Supports playlists and other media types such as MP3, JPG, GIF, PNG and SWF
  • Can play video directly from YouTube.com, TED.com, and any sites that have the necessary crossdomain.xml policy file in place
  • Can be used with media servers and a variety of types of media streaming
  • Comes with a wide selection of UI skins to change the visual appearance of the player
  • Basic HTML5 video playback on operating systems where Flash Player is not supported, i.e. iOS – iPhone, iPad, iPod
