New video link/embed option: videos hosted on Sharestream
As the request title states, we request that H5P's video player/interactive video player support the link/embed codes produced by the Sharestream video hosting platform. Sharestream is video hosting service that focuses on videos hosted for education. Our state-wide institution (in California) has adopted Sharestream as our secure video hosting platform for our 23 campuses.. The videos we host, just from our campus alone, entail thousands of videos (e.g., faculty lectures, demos, etc.).
Our campus uses the Moodle LMS platform and we've adopted H5P as part of the LMS. However, H5P's support for video links/embeds in the interactive video player, for example, only works with uploaded videos (which we could do before going to Sharestream cloud hosting service) and ubiquitous services like Youtube or Vimeo. However Sharestream now hosts most of our video content securely--in fact the Sharestream videos can only be viewed by those logged into our LMS. We can embed that Sharestream content in our Moodle courses wiithout issue, but we CANNOT integrate the video links that Sharestream produces into our H5P content. Every attempt we've made shows up as an unknown source/video format unrecognized error. Sharestream uses only the .mp4 format, which should not pose a problem for H5P, but H5P and Sharestream won't work together at all (some code or protocol incompatibilty, no doubt).
So to reiterite, I am requesting that H5P enable support in its video apps for links/embed codes from the Sharestream hosting service. This would enable our use of factulty lectures, etc within H5P interactive videos, for example. For the H5P organization, it might mean additional opportunities to have H5P adopted by more of our 23 campuses, since Sharestream is now institutionalized throughout our system.
