MULTIMEDIA AND EASYCAMPUS - OVERVIEW

EasyCampus is compatible with a number of multimedia formats. Objects of this type can be embedded into EasyCampus web page objects and HTML blocks using a fairly simple embed code:

<a href="HTTP://CAMPUS.EDUCADIUM.COM/CAMPUSNAME/FILE.PHP/COURSENUMBER/FILENAME>?d=512x384"></a>

You can replace the yellow-highlighted text with text that matches your campus, course, file, width and height.

The formats EasyCampus supports include:

  • mp3
  • swf
  • mov
  • wmv
  • mpg
  • avi
  • flv
  • ram
  • rpm
  • rm

Even if the type of multimedia you need is incompatible with EasyCampus' built in player, it's possible you can play it using an explicit object embed code. For example, this code uses Apple's Quicktime player and embeds an mp4 file loaded into a sample EasyCampus:

<OBJECT CLASSID="clsid:02BF25D5-8C17-4B23-BC80-D3488ABDDC6B" WIDTH="160"HEIGHT="144" 
CODEBASE="http://www.apple.com/qtactivex/qtplugin.cab"><PARAM name="SRC"
VALUE="http://campus.educadium.com/addmmcontent/file.php/106/cat-talking-translation.mp4"><PARAM name="AUTOPLAY"
VALUE="true"><PARAM name="CONTROLLER" VALUE="false">
<EMBED SRC="http://campus.educadium.com/addmmcontent/file.php/106/cat-talking-translation.mp4" WIDTH="160"
HEIGHT="144" AUTOPLAY="true" CONTROLLER="false" PLUGINSPAGE="http://www.apple.com/quicktime/download/">
</EMBED> </OBJECT>

There are many free players you can embed in a course page. Try an internet search framed something like "Embed ____ in html" where you replace the blank with the extension of the media you want to embed.

Another option is to convert your multimedia to a format compatible with EasyCampus, for example Flash. Contact our support team if you need help with this.
