How can I open a downloaded h5p file?

There is anyway to open a downloaded h5p file? I am not a web manager, I just want to open a .h5p video. Thinks for any answer.

Hi xcheng_chen!

You will need to have a platform to run the H5P content, e.g. using one of the plugins (Drupal, WordPress, moodle or Ilias) or the external tool h5p-standalone. There's no support for "native" or offline running of H5P.

I cannot understand why it is not possible to view an H5P content in a web browser, being it an html5 file.

In the H5P documentation it is stated that "all you need to view and edit an H5P content is a web browser". I can understand that to edit it you need a specific tool as what is used on H5P site or with a plugin, but it is difficult to understand why you cannot simply view it, being it an html5 file.

I was very excited using it to create content in Moodle courses but, because I need the students to download contents in their own computers and study them offline (because of vary poor Internet connections in many areas here in Africa wher I live!), I stumbled upon this limitation that doesn't allow me to use H5P.

Do I miss something?

Thanks

Hi Archet!

The H5P file that you download is not an HTML file. It is a zip archive containing the parameters entered in the editor, media files that were uploaded and the JavaScript libraries needed to run the content. You still need some form of runtime environment.

H5P doesn't feature offline support yet, but you could get it by sneaking in the back door using the moodle app. Alternatively, you could try Lumi.

According to the tutorials in here:
https://nephilaweb.com.ph/2020/11/20/moodle-3-10-is-out-get-interactive-...
Moodle 3.10 can view h5p files in offline mode.

If I somehow create an h5p file and install Moodle 3.10 app on Android mobile phone.
would I be able to view the h5p content offline?

Hi mayabhat,

I'm afraid there is no H5P to PPT converter.

Hi Sandra,

Please provide more details such as the following:

  1. Detailed steps to reproduce the bug (exactly how and when did it happen)
  2. Platform and version number. E.g. Drupal, Wordpress, Moodle.
  3. Mobile or Desktop
  4. Browser: Chrome, Firefox, Safari etc
  5. H5P plugin version
  6. H5P content type and version (if a content type was used), and a sample URL or attached H5P.
  7. Any browser console errors
  8. Any PHP errors
  9. Screenshots if it's a visual problem

If it worked before:

  1. Any recent changes to the environment (new plugins/modules, updates, configuration changes etc.)
  2. Any recent changes to the browser you're using (new extensions, updates etc.)

The more information you provide, the quicker the community will be able to fix it and the quicker you'll have a working solution!

Hi!

You can just unzip the file and extract the video. If you mean to play it on your local machine, use http://lumi.education

Hi Oliver, is there a way for students to use H5P locally (eg with Lumi) but without editing rights (to avoid them editing the activity for obvious reasons)? Take care

I assume that Sebastian Rettig would be the better addressee, because he's the developer. He is quite active on this forum, too. In short: I don't think so. But Sebastian has already added HTML export, is about to add SCORM export, and maybe he'll create a plain "player", too - although that's not really helping, because students could just download the "editor", they could go to sites that allow uploading and editing H5P content like einstiegh5p.de to inspect the inner workings, etc.

You just have to export to html using Lumi. Your student would just have to open the html file.

Hi, h5p-standalone plugin works for me.
Here are the steps  -  
1 - Download the plugin from GIT  - https://github.com/tunapanda/h5p-standalone
2 - It will not work on localhost, So I push the set up over a server. 
3 - In setup, over the path  -  h5p-standalone-master/test/single.html, modifies the path of included files  - applied '../dist' inplace of '/dist' 
4 - In single.html file, you will find code  -  
<code>

<script type="text/javascript">

    const {H5P} = H5PStandalone;
    new H5P(document.getElementById('h5p-container'), 'full_workspace', {
      frameJs: '../dist/frame.bundle.js',
      frameCss: '../dist/styles/h5p.css'
    });
  </script>

</code>

here 'full_workspace' is the directory name of unzipped .h5p file, that is placed at location 'h5p-standalone-master/test/full_workspace'.
5 - So, basically .h5p extension file is a zip file, that you need to unzip and need to give the path in above code inplace of 'full_workspace'.Now, you are done. Now run your path in browser  -  https://baseUrl/h5p-standalone-master/test/simple.html

hope it helps..

thanks

Hi!

Nice! You could also load an H5P file in Lumi and export it to an HTML file directly.

Best,

According to the tutorials in here:
https://nephilaweb.com.ph/2020/11/20/moodle-3-10-is-out-get-interactive-...
Moodle 3.10 can view h5p files in offline mode.

If I somehow create an h5p file and install Moodle 3.10 app on Android mobile phone.
would I be able to view the h5p content offline?

Hi!

In theory, yes. But overall, from what I read on the webz, people are very fond of moodle but not so much of the moodle mobile app. So you could simply try if it suits your needs.

Best,

Oliver
