Hi Emma,

When you imported the LO into your own system, is it now launching in the Flash (blueish with the dropdowns at bottom) player?

Its recommended now that you use the Javascript (HTML5) engine. You might need to go into the Properties of the LO and change this as there was a problem in the past that imported content automatically defaulted to Flash.

If it isn't the Flash player that is launching then can you send a screenshot please?

Subject: [Xerte] video content

Hi there,

Our University's IT team have recently installed Xerte onto one of our test servers.

I am testing out material formally created in the sandpit with this version, it all displays fine except for the multimedia content, I have a page where I have embedded a youtube clip.  It now launches the clip in a new window but has the word undefined also appearing, any ideas how I could resolve this?

Many thanks,
