Fronter - inserting videos
I've created videos with my class and saved them as .avi files. Anyone know how I can display these in Fronter?
I've tried uploading as a file and then creating an internal link but this doesn't work. I've also tried 'uploading media' in the text editor. This did work however it took about 15 mins to upload and another 5 once you open it (& this video was only 15 seconds long). There must be an easier way, just can't see the wood for the trees!
Thx in advance

What about embedding a you tube video or a flash file, I know it possible to do it in other html documents, not sure about within fronter tho.

It can be done. You have to upload your video into the teacher resources and then right click on the file to 'copy link address' and paste into where it says VALUE"" between the speech marks. Thy this
EDIT: Forgot to say paste this whole block into the page source code where you want it.
<object ID="MediaPlayer" WIDTH="250" HEIGHT="238" CLASSID="CLSID:22D6F312-B0F6-11D0-94AB-0080C74C7E95" STANDBY="Loading Windows Media Player components..." TYPE="application/x-oleobject"><PARAM NAME="FileName" VALUE=""> <PARAM name="autostart" VALUE="0"> <PARAM name="ShowControls" VALUE="1"> <param name="ShowStatusBar" value="false"><PARAM name="ShowDisplay" VALUE="false"> <embed src="http://" width="250" height="238" autostart="0" uiMode="mini" showcontrols="1" type="application/x-mplayer2" pluginspage="http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/download/"> </embed> </object>

Hi, I have just tried that and it don't work. I have uploaded the video which is .wmv format, right clicked and selected properties - copied the address url and pasted this url into the embedded coding you provided above.

We have used loads of embed video. If you are in London you can use video central service to host it https://videocentral.lgfl.org.uk/. You can also use Vimeo, Video Sharing For You which like youtube.
Another option is to use Embedded Media HTML Generator to generate an embed code
I've also started using embedit.in — Any file, in your website to put document files in rooms

You can do it with a Scorm workaround
I came across this thread when also having problems embedding a video. There is no difficulty embedding a video that is hosted on YouTube or similar but that often runs into problems with blocking filters. I wanted to have the video hosted on Fronter but couldn't get it to work when I uploaded the video, obtained the address of the uploaded video and tried to embed that.
Instead, and it is a bit of a faff, I used the Scorm workaround in this thread:
Fronter work arounds?
I created a zip file containing the relevant manifest, jwplayer files, etc. then uploaded it as a new course. It all worked fine including giving the option of playing full screen.
