Update: The FLV solution using JWPLAYER works like a charm in Moodle 2.0.
Forget what I wrote earlier since it didn't work on my Mac browsers (although it worked flawlessly on UbuntuLinux...go figure). You can see what success looks like online as of Friday, 12/3/2010. Obviously, the link will go down after awhile.
How to Embed FLV Video in Moodle 2.0 HTML Block
You can see what success looks like at http://excel.saisd.net/itech as of Friday, 12/3/2010.
- Download JWPLAYER, a free Flash video player and put it on your server in a directory somewhere that's easy to link to.
- Use this embed code (copy-n-paste the code into HTML block while in HTML view) replacing the the 2 links. The first link goes to the location of JWPlayer's "player.swf" file and the second link to your video
- Try it out!
The source for this eureka moment--because i never would have figured it out--is this forum post.
