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. It 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

Type: The type of media and type of delivery to be used for the Video URL provided. The settings are:

  • default - a URL link to a video file available over the Internet. Must start with http://...
  • Sound - a link to an MP3 or AAC file in the Moodle course files directory
