What is the best way of Embedding media in Moodle?

  1. Interesting discussion on Moodle Mahem list: https://groups.google.com/forum/?pli=1#!topic/moodlemayhem/txt_5pNwATk
  2. Playing Flash FLV & SWF in MOODLE 2.0: http://moodle.org/mod/forum/discuss.php?d=163374
  3. What about SWF? There have been some security worries on using SWF. But the advantage is that it comes with a player bundled in it.

How can I have embedded media resized appropriately?

Some thoughts on this are still in development.

  1. Detect size of file: http://tracker.moodle.org/browse/MDL-8984
  2. Patch: http://tracker.moodle.org/browse/MDL-23870

An extract from here: http://moodle.org/mod/forum/discuss.php?d=169935

You can also add specific dimentions to the end of the attribute HREF inside the anchor <A> tag.

<a href="link-to-some-flash-file.swf?d=480x640">Flash File</a>

Please pay attention to the ?d=480x640 part of the code, which you have to put in, yourself. by switching from HTML mode into TEXT mode.
