Moodle Plugin: Disable Upload in Interactive Video

We are a self-hosted Moodle institution. As such, our Moodle server is not set up to function as a media streaming server. When instructors upload videos through H5P Interactive Video and students watch them, it can cause major problems including server stalling and outage. We would like the ability to disable the upload option for Interactive Video in the Moodle H5P Plugin, and only enable video links to be used for Interactive Video.

Summary: 
Disable upload video

Hi ajmendoz,

Thank you for contributing your ideas on how to make H5P better! We’re now working on something called the H5P supporter program allowing the H5P community to vote for and fund the top voted H5P features. Also there are developers in the community who every now and then works on a feature they find interesting or useful.

Hi ajmendoz!

You can hide the upload part of the form by overriding the CSS.

Best,

Oliver 

Thank you, Oliver. Would overriding the CSS to hide the upload section be impacted by future updates to the Interactive Video content type or the H5P Moodle plugin? In other words, would we have to do this every time there is an update?

Thanks,

Arlene

Hi Arlene!

If you hardcode the changes into the content type itself, then yes. But customizing the stylesheet doesn't require to change the content type. You can override CSS as described in the documentation (https://h5p.org/documentation/for-developers/visual-changes). Unless the class names/structures within the editor change (possible, but hardly ever happens), you won't have to adjust anything.

Best,

Oliver
