Install & update content types
It is important that you keep your H5P content types up to date to make sure that you have all the latest features (and bugfixes).
Important notice: On April 12th 2017 the H5P Hub was released, which replaces the old way of installing content types. You must make sure you are using a plugin version including the HUB if you want to install and update content types. For the different plugins, this means:
Drupal: minimum version 1.28
WordPress: minimum version 1.8.0
Moodle: minimum version 1.1 (2017041200)
Below are the instructions on how to update and install new content types with the latest version of the H5P plugin.

Hi David-Bisk,You should have
You should have a download button at the buttom of the content. That will save a .h5p file that you can upload in Wordpress.

Hi BV52,I have the same issue
I have the same issue like David-Bisk, and any download button at the buttom of the content ?!
Thu, 12/14/2017 - 07:54
Hi ewa_icn,If you don't see
If you don't see the download button at the bottom of the content you just need to update the content and put a check on "Download button" option.
Thu, 12/14/2017 - 11:39
update the content, you mean
update the content, you mean save the content? I have only 'Save' and 'Delate' buttons... and of course I've puted a check on "Download button" ???
Fri, 12/15/2017 - 06:31
Hi ewa_icn,I'm sorry for the
I'm sorry for the confusion and yes you are correct the download button is what I mean. Are you not seeing the option once you save the content?
Fri, 12/15/2017 - 08:59
Hi BV52,Exaclly, I don't see
Exaclly, I don't see the option once I saved the content, I see only 'Save' and 'Delate' buttons at the buttom of the content. Thaks for your support.
Fri, 12/15/2017 - 10:15
Hi ewa_icn,The download
The download button should show up once you save the content. It is available when using the content not when editing it.

Unable to upload modified content types to Moodle
i tried to upload a modifed content type on H5p.org however it has been communicated that h5p.org doesn't accept modifed content types. So i tried to upload the modified content type on my moodle Instance and i keep getting the same error:
Validating h5p package failed.
Fri, 01/12/2018 - 09:46
Where are you trying to
Where are you trying to upload the .h5p file ? Through editor or through the library list ?
Do you get any messages in your browser's console when this happens, and do you get any errors in your server's PHP error log ?
As the message says the h5p file can not be validated, there can be numerous reasons for this, most likely your .h5p file is broken, server is not properly configured or you're trying to upload the file in the wrong place.

Working without the HUB
I understand the note above this article as it is not possible to install and update content types WITHOUT the HUB. So, if we block the HUB on our moodle, it will not be possible to install or update anything?
Besides this: What would happen to the current installed content types if we deactivate the HUB ?
Thank you for your trouble!

Hello to the HWR!You can
Hello to the HWR!
You can deactivate the Hub, but then you'll have to check the sources on github for updates manually and also update them yourself. If the question behind your question is: Does the Hub collect personal data, then the answer is: no. May 25 is not only the day that the GDPR comes into effect, but it's also Towel Day. So: Don't panic.
If you deactivate the link to the Hub, nothing will happen to your content types. They'll work as before. There's no dependency that requires the Hub in order to run.

lang to tr
i want to change interactive video editor' language from English to Turkish but I couldn't find it. Could you help me?
Tue, 10/16/2018 - 09:15
Hi ademozgur!There is a
There is a language file for Turkish, but it seems that nobody has translated it so far. Feel free to help out!

Hi otacke, i partially
Hi otacke, i partially translated interactive video to tr on github (tr.json file). And I also think all of them translate to Turkish. Bu I couldn't found how can I add tr.json to drupal h5p editor-ineractive video, it's already English.
Wed, 10/17/2018 - 11:05
Hi ademozgur!I can't find any
I can't find any trace of your translation on github in the official repository. Did you possible not create a pull request for your changes? If it's merged in, then the translation file would be updated with the next update of Interactive Video.
You can, of course, replace the language files locally on your drupal system, too, but that would require some manual tweaking and would not be future proof. Please also note that even if you replace language files, this will not change any content that has already be created. The changes will only have an effect for newly created content.

Hi oliverTacke, could you look again? I propesed a file change on github. Thanks.
Wed, 10/17/2018 - 13:51
Hi ademozgur!I can find your
I can find your changes in your own repository. This doesn't mean they will show up in the H5P repository. You will have to create a pull request. When you are logged in into your repository on github, you should see a button labeled "pull request" in the upper right hand corner of the file list. Click on it, complete the form that pops up, and then we can see your request to merge your changes into the official repository.
As I mentioned before: We'll have to merge if in first (you'll automatically receive a notification about this) and then release an update which will contain the changes.

Oliver hi again
I translated language file to Turkish. But it still English. When Turkish language update come to interactive Video?
Mon, 12/10/2018 - 00:46
I think that Interactive
I think that Interactive Video was updated since you contacted me for the first time, so Turkish should be available for new content that you create. Please note that existing content will not be upgraded automatically.

Wordpress update caused missing content types, then H5P gone
Hello H5P users,
Our admin recently upgraded our WordPress multisite (Pressbooks) to what I think may be 5.0.3. We're getting a notification that WordPress 5.1 is available but we haven't updated to it because Pressbooks may not work with it. After the WordPress update, many of the H5P content types weren't showing as available in the hub, e.g. interactive vide was gone. We downloaded the latest H5P plugin from https://wordpress.org/plugins/h5p/ today. Instead of installing manually into the /wp-content/plugins folder, it was installed in the Network Admin interface by first deactivating the existing H5P plugin and then installing the new one. It fixed the problem with the missing content types. 41 appeared. But, all of our H5P content items that people created in the past disappeared from our Pressbooks.
How should we have updated the H5P plugin to avoid the loss of the existing H5P content?
We have a VM Snapshot that the admin took of the server before the H5P deactivation. Can we reinstate our WordPress/Pressbooks instance from this and get all of the H5P work back?
Thank you for your help,
Cleveland State University

Hi Heather, It's difficult to
It's difficult to tell what might have happened in this instance but your content should still be in the database/files unless you've run the uninstall process for the plugin. Regarding upgrading to a newer version, putting the site into maintenance mode and then just deleting the wp-content/plugin/h5p folder and copying in the new plugin h5p folder should do the trick. But do make sure to backup everything first.
If you've transitioned from a regular installation to a network installation it might be that a new table has been created for the content instead of the old one being renamed. To try and figure out what has happened you should have a look at the *_h5p_contents tables in the database to see where the content is.

enabling h5p hub
i have had many problems after the release of PHP 7x. Luckily come over all except for activating the h5p hub on the settings panel of WP dashboard. And now i want to try to uninstall and install "H5p" again. Now the question is this:
What will happen to my all previous contents?
Wed, 10/16/2019 - 18:44
Hi muyanik09,You would have
You would have to create a backup prior to uninstalling/reinstalling the plugin since you will lose all your content if don't.

Hello,Im using an E-learning
Im using an E-learning system that has a h5p plugin. Only, this is version 1.19, which means most of the content can not be used. It was now suggested that I use 'older'. versions of plug-ins (like the interactive video program) from github.
I am not a programmer or something like that, so I do not know how I can do this. Is there a tutorial available for using sources from github?
Thank you for your time.
Thu, 11/21/2019 - 19:12
Hi Kirstenb,I'm not sure I
I'm not sure I understand why there is a need to use an older version of the H5P plugin. If you use an older version you will not get the full potential of the content types as well as have bugs that are already resolved.

Does this workflow apply to BrightSpace/D2L platforms? When I try to create content through the integrated tool in BrightSpace, I only see 26 content types, when there are 20 more that I see when I look at the " Examples and Downloads" section on this page. My admin says he doesn't see anything to click on to add more tools.

Hi brianpnagy,There are some
There are some content types that are disabled by default for H5P.com and some that are not available altogether. To enable the content types the administrator needs to go to Manage Organization -> Settings -> Content Type settings, in there you can enable the contents.
Below is the documentation for the content types overview and limitations:
For your reference this is the page for the list of content types that are not available in H5P.com:

where I can download the examples?
I'm getting this error: Your site is having difficulties connecting to H5P.org and listing the available content types.
There is a link where I could download some example of interactive video to install in my site? thank you for naswering
Mon, 06/22/2020 - 18:04
Hi Crisona,You can download
You can download the sample contents here. I suggest that you download the complex content types first like Column, Course Presentation etc. since these content types also installs the libraries of the content types that can be created within them.

Problems with installation of H5P content types
I tried to add the content types foloowing this process, but I had some troubles. Downloaded the content from the web site, but when I tried to upload them, some error messages appear (The messages originally were in spanish. So, I try to translate the to english. That's why they may not match exactly, but the main idea is for you to understand the situation):
What (and how) can I do to get and install those libraries?
Thank you for all your help.

Hi charlie0913,As a
As a workaround you can download the sample contents and upload it in the H5P editor. Please note that you need admin access to be able to install libraries.
