Check PHP's Max execution time
Site Administration -> Server -> PHP Info
If max_execution_time is too low, we will need to raise it. Details on how to do that are here.
Poodll has a number of plugins. Initially you should start with the Poodll filter plugin(required), and Poodll Anywhere(Atto or TinyMCE) or the Online Poodll assignment submission. You can install PoodLL plugins in one of three ways.
Get your Registration code from PoodLL.com
Poodll registers your domain as it appears in your Moodle site’s configuration file, and your registration key is checked against that. To do this, go to https://poodll.com/member and enter your Moodle site’s full url. After saving, the registration key should appear beneath the registered url.
You can return to change the registered URL. Institution subscription users can add a wildcard ‘*’ in place of the www (or other subdomain) to enable all subdomains.
Add your code in the Poodll Filter General Settings
Go to: Site administration -> plugins -> filters -> PoodLL
You should see:
- General Settings
- File Extension Settings
- Widget Settings
Go to General Settings and enter the registration code you made earlier.
Enable and position the Poodll filter
To handle playback of audio and video files, and to display widgets, the Poodll filter needs to be enabled. Ordinarily the Moodle multimedia plugins filter is responsible for showing players, but the two can co-exist nicely. You will need to:
- Enable the Poodll filter and
- Move it higher in the list than the Multimedia plugins filter.
Site administration -> Plugins -> Filters -> Manage filters
Confirm default mp4/mp3 handler
Poodll takes a different approach to other media filters, in how it handles the links it is asked to process. Players can be freely configured, customized or created as templates. When Poodll is installed, by default “Flowplayer First Frame” and “Audio JS Shim” are available and registered to handle .mp4 and .mp3 respectively. Confirm this by visiting the Poodll settings File extensions settings page at:
Site administration -> Plugins ->Filters ->Poodll ->File Extension Settings
(You can can use different audio and video players too, if those templates are available.)
Enable “Poodll Widgets” in settings for Poodll for Atto
Ensure the Poodll Atto editor is available on the toolbar, go to:
Site administration->Plugins ->Text editors->Atto HTML editor ->Atto toolbar settings
And insert Poodll into the location you want to appear on toolbar.
Site administration -> Plugins -> Text editors -> Atto HTML Editor-> Poodll Anywhere
