Interactive Video problems in IE and Edge
This is what I did:
- Exported a PowerPoint presentation as an MP4 video, timing set to 10 seconds per slide.
- Used that video in an Interactive Video in the H5P Moodle plugin
- Added several Navigation Hotspots to function as Forward/Back navigation along each edge of each “slide”. Two seconds after the video reaches a slide change, the Navigation Hotspots load with the video paused. The right edge jumps ahead to the next “slide” and the left back to the previous. The hot spots are tall narrow rectangles, overlayed on arrow images in the video.
- It also includes a Text poster at the beginning and a Multiple Choice question near the end.
Everything seems to work fine in Firefox and Chrome, but not in Edge or Internet Explorer. In both of the latter, after the third or fourth forward click (this number is inconsistent), the Navigation Hotspots appear to stop working, the video plays on without pausing, and the scrub bar and timer do not indicate any forward motion.
Ive uploaded one here to see if the behavior continues outside of Moodle, and it does. At least, it does for me. Works fine in Chrome and FF, but not in IE or Edge.
I have several Interactive Videos in a Moodle course, built in the same way, and all behave in the same way.
(I didn’t create the PPTs, by the way. I was just asked to get them online in a format that could be tracked. I chose Interactive Video Instead of Course Presentation so I could more easily enforce at least a short amount of time on each slide while giving the users some choice in navigation)
- Moodle v3.1
- H5P Moodle Plugin v 1.5 (2017083100)
- H5P libraries up to date, as far as I can tell. The installed libraries page in Moodle shows as follows:
Interactive Video (1.11.2) 0 2
Interactive Video (1.15.0) 0 2
Interactive Video (1.16.0) 0 1
Interactive Video (1.17.2) 25 2
Interactive Video Editor (1.11.2) 0 1
Interactive Video Editor (1.15.0) 0 1
Interactive Video Editor (1.16.1) 0 1
Interactive Video Editor (1.17.2) 0 1
Any guidance is appreciated. We are currently suggesting the use of Chrome or Firefox.
Loving H5P, by the way!
