Offline / Desktop consumption?

Request: Allow students to download h5p packages and play them offline, on their desktop, laptop, tablet, or mobile.

My current setup:

I have my content structured in a book. I let instructors choose to reference an interactive video (h5p) or a upload videos right into the node. On display, I have two buttons: 1) Download PDF and 2) Download Video

The Download Video link is for the video field, while the pdf renders the rest of the content (body, images, etc.). I would like to be able to do something similar with h5p content.

It would be awesome if there was a way for students to playback h5p packages right on their local machines. From a pedagogical perspective, it enables greater flexibility of access.

Just a thought, thanks for your time and an awesome product.

Thank you for your interest in H5P!

The function you are asking for is from a technical perspective possible to do, but it is not part of the current H5P roadmap. It might be someone in the growing H5P-community could implement such a functionality. We will for sure offer support for external developers contributing to H5P!

Dear incredible H5P team :)

I was wondering if there has been any movement on this front?

For an upcoming project, involving a few hundred students in the pilot and eventually, several thousand students across the province, most in situations where they do not have constant, affordable Internet connectivity, this feature is a basic requirement for us to be able to use H5P to carry our content.

Any chance this could be released by the end of August?

This is, unfortunately, something the H5P core team can't prioritize now. There have been some efforts by community members to create mobile apps displaying H5Ps, but I am not sure what the current status is.


Yep, the assumption that everyone has access to a reliable internet connection is flawed. It's not merely poor infrastructure but sometimes a deliberate constraint (e.g. for security). Not being able to take advantage of your excellent content creation tool for this reason is a 'show-stopper' and undermines the core philosophy of providing quality learning for all. I really do think that this should be a major roadmap mission.
