Video Easy filter, which is developed by Justin Hunt (the PoodLL guy), has been updated recently to support the Moodle 2.9 version.
VideoEasy is a filter to play mp4, mp3 and other media files with html5 players. It uses user editable templates to allow the admin to customize the appearance of existing players or to support new players. Predefined player templates support Video JS, JPlayer, JW Player, Flowplayer and MediaElement.js
Acc. to the plugin description:
VideoEasy replaces links to media files, with html5 players. Primarily intended for html 5 video, it will also work for audio, youtube or rss links. The Video Easy filter uses templates to support multiple players, and allows the user to add new players or customize existing ones, all from the Video Easy filter settings pages. By default players are already defined, and can be used as is, for: Video.js, JPlayer, JW Player, Flowplayer and MediaElement.js
But preset templates are available for other players, and you are encouraged to use the existing players and presets as examples, and make your own templates.
