Having lots of problems embedding .avi files on our Mahara v1.7 install.

This is the blow by blow account of the issue:

The question is, is it me, my PC or our install

 

Sorry (again)

Hello Gideon,

This sounds like an issue with the mimetype of the avi file, i.e. it's a browser issue. It doesn't seem to be recognized properly by the browser. We've had this problem esp. when embedding PDF files because even though there is a standard for embedding those things, some people mess with the browser mimetypes and then they aren't recognized properly.

There are bug reports already at

https://bugs.launchpad.net/mahara/+bug/1045292 (specifically for avi and the mimetype you should only have in your browser)

https://bugs.launchpad.net/mahara/+bug/1249858
https://bugs.launchpad.net/mahara/+bug/1249166

The best will be to delete the incorrect browser bindings for avi.

Cheers

Kristina
