Global options or mass edit H5Ps in Moodle

I am running a course on Moodle and have about 100 H5P interactive videos with about 200-250 interactive tasks total. The Moodle plugin offers a list of H5P content. (See the screenshot) It would be useful if I could either mass edit the H5Ps on this list, or set global overrides for different options.

Particularly, I would like to edit the general display options (Display action bar and frame, Download button, Copyright button) and the Behavioural settings of Interactive Videos.

Hi mronkko,

The display options already has a global setting, you can see this by going to Site Administration -> Plugins -> H5P settings.

For the other request I think this is a great idea specially if you need specific settings for particular content type.


Ideally I would like this to be a per-course setting. On a large Moodle installation, it is difficult to change the global settings. It would be much easier if a teacher of an individual course could mass edit this setting.

Forcing the download link to not appear on a site-wide basis is not a good solution, because some teachers, like I, want to download the H5P files and edit them directly instead of using the UI. After am done wiht the edits, I would like to disable all download linkts on my course. Currently this requires reviewing each H5P, which is quite a bit of work.

Hi Mikko,

Thank you for additional information and I think in your scenario it does make sense for this type of setting. I hope the core team or someone in the community picks this up and create the feature.
