Even more support for the Apple community

Our development team noticed that there was a huge upsurge in users wishing to store podcasts, iPod movies and a whole range of Apple format files on the learning platform during the last month. This is brilliant, because users are now able to use the learning platform to store a range of files for many purposes.

One major problem, commonly found in many other products is that all you can do is store the files - when it comes to playing them back; you have to download software in order to play the files.

The team have just released a new update (ahead of schedule for the next release) that now adds integrated playback support for the following file types:

AVI, MOV, WMV, MP4, MPG, MPEG, M2V, M4V, 3GP, 3G2 and M2V

This means that (if transocding is enabled on your VLE, which it normally is) if you upload any of these files, our system will recompress the material into FLV format, meaning that your material can be played back online without requiring any software!

Now you can include mobile phone videos, podcasts, iPod material and a whole range of Apple produced material directly inside the learning platform. Our mobile edition can also palyback this material too (Android only at the moment).

Have fun!
