Hi Mahara enthusiasts,

My students are attempting to embed teacher tube videos in Mahara views and profiles without any success—any ideas?

Best,

Scot.

Hi - how are they trying to do it? Through the embedded media block, or by pasting HTML into text boxes?

Also, what version of Mahara are you using?

Hi Nigel,

Through the external embedded media block and I'm not sure of the version--it is hosted by NetSpot in Australia.

 Best,

Scot.

Ok. Could you please try to find that out? In the meantime, can you give us some examples of what people are doing to try and get the videos to show (e.g. what they are putting in the block configuration)? I can have a go with Mahara 1.1.

See:  http://cqu-mahara.netspot.com.au/view/view.php?t=9LZCtkSIvRAr8EqbRyDe

for a view with Teacher tube external video inserted.

NetSpot are running Mahara 1.1.2

Best,

Scot.

Hi, yes that looks broken. Can you please paste what value the user put in the block configuration for what movie to embed?

Hi Nigel,

I think I am running Mahara 1.1 and I am also having problems with TeacherTube. I pasted a URL in the embed section and those views just kept trying to load it. Any suggestions?

Thanks, Heather

I'm not sure if they changed the format of the urls, or whether we've just never seen urls of that format before, but I managed to fix it in the externalvideo block.  I'll apply the fix for the next release, but if you need to fix it urgently on your site let me know and I'll paste the patch here, it's just a matter of adding 4 new lines in one .php file.

Hi Richard,

Would it be possible to get a copy of the patch? We're looking after Scot's Mahara implementation and would like to get this feature running for him before the next release. Any help appreciated :)

Mark.
