See the installation section in the PoodLL documentation.
You only *need* the PoodLL filter. The other plugins are optional and depend really on how you want to use PoodLL in your Moodle installation. A good set to start off with would be:
- PoodLL Filter
- PoodLL Assignmnet Submission Type
- PoodLL Recording Question Type
- PoodLL Anywhere for Atto(Moodle 2.7 and above)
- PoodLL Anywhere for TinyMCE (Moodle 2.4 – 2.6)
The PoodLL MP3 Recorder is best for short recordings of up to 90 seconds or so. After that it may be better to use the standard audio recorder. The standard audio recorder works with our tokyo.poodll.com server. So it is a more complex process, but hopefully nobody will ever notice.
Both the PoodLL filter and the Multi media plugins filter turn media links into players. If both filters are enabled and trying to work on the same media link, you can get two players. ouch. ouch.

The main issue here is usually to check that the permission has been granted to access your microphone/camera. Flash will show a little box on top of the recorder when it starts. If you missed it, or want to tell it to remember your settings, right click the recorder and choose settings. If you are using Google Chrome browser, it has its own permissions. There is a very hard to see little dialog that appears beneath your address bar when the recorder is activated. If you look carefully you will see it.
