JW FLV Player Video URL, Type & Streamer

Note: If Sound, Image or Video are selected, the player will automatically look for the video file in the Moodle course files directory. Use "Choose or upload a file...".

Video URL: The source or location of the media file to be played.

  • Click on the "Choose or upload a file..." button to play videos from the Moodle course files directory.
  • Video file types can be an FLV, F4V, MOV, MP4 or any file type supported by Flash Player.
  • If the video file is on a different domain to your Moodle, there must be a crossdomain.xml policy file on that domain. i.e. If your site URL is "http://mymoodle.com/", and the video file URL is "http://someotherserver.com/videos/sample_video.flv", then there must be a crossdomain.xml file at "http://someotherserver.com/crossdomain.xml". Some video hosting sites such as YouTube.com already have a "catchall" crossdomain.xml policy file installed, allowing you to consume media from them without any configuration being necessary. For further details, see: http://kb2.adobe.com/cps/142/tn_14213.html
  • You can also link to an XML playlist here. For more information about playlists, see: http://code.google.com/p/moodle-flv-player/wiki/UsingXMLPlaylists
