Fatal Error

we recently updated to Moodle 2.9.x and Autoview works well, except when we select the "Autoview Presentations" from the "This Course" menu at the top (which attempts to go to http://oursite/mod/autoview/index.php?id=28).  When this is selected we get this error message:

Increase Video width and height equal to slide size
by Vinoth Kannan - Tuesday, 7 January 2014, 3:42 AM

Hi All,

In Autoview the video size is small than the slide size. Can we increase the width and height of the video screen in autoview such that slide size and video size are equal by default.

We use Moodle 2.4.2 and latest release of autoview.

Thanks in advance

Autoview and Moodle Mobile
by Mark Davis - Tuesday, 30 April 2013, 5:25 PM
Hi Tim,

I just noticed under the Autoview "New Developments" area, that you guys are working on "Delivery to Mobile clients", and I was wondering if this was being done in coordination with the relatively newly released Moodle Mobile?  We would love to be able to view Autoview videos and PowerPoints using the Moodle Mobile app.!  Thanks.

Slide Display doen't show any image
by Francisco Abarca - Sunday, 7 April 2013, 11:18 PM


I'm wondering why autoview doesn't show any image when I'm editing a slide presentation. My name images are renamed with img001_1.jpg or something like this. I don't manage to create a presentaon with jpg images. The video works finely.

Thanks in advance.

Download video option
by Mark Davis - Friday, 28 September 2012, 7:45 PM

I was wondering if there is an option that I can turn on that would allow users to download the videos in AutoView?  That would be really nice for offline viewing of non-protected content.
