      Description

      You can duplicate the problem as follows

      • upload the attached QuickTime file (test.mov, 7KB) to course files
      • create a "Link to file or Web site" resource pointing to test.mov and specifying New Window
      • view using IE

      Instead of a movie, garbage text is displayed in the popup (see screenshot)

        Nice. Tracker threw away my attachments. See the forum for screenshot and small QuickTime movie.

        Please confirm that you are still having this issue with 1.9. I just tested it following your steps, and it works fine both in FF and IE7. Please check the forum discussion too.

        Hello,

        I think these two discussions are related.

        http://moodle.org/mod/forum/discuss.php?d=84371

        http://moodle.org/mod/forum/discuss.php?d=84520

        Our server-- for reference is OS X 10.5.1 with PHP 5.2.1 and MySQL 5.0.45

        In our situation, files that are living in the moodledata folder are not displaying. The file is there, and the content is available if I access the server via ssh, but when displayed in moodle, it is blank.

        It is happening to about 90% of the files that have been uploaded, as far as I can tell.

        Here is a bit more info... when clicking on a link to a .htm file, I receive a blank browser window.

        Viewing the source on that page shows this:

        <script defer="defer" src="http://moodle.breckschool.org/filter/mediaplugin/eolas_fix.js" type="text/javascript">// <![CDATA[ ]]></script>

        The media plugin filters are on-- but if I turn them off, and follow the same steps, it shows no source whatsoever.

        This is happening in all of our browsers Safari, Firefox, and Camino.

        And I also forgot to put in my first post, we are using Moodle 1.8.3 – we recently upgraded from 1.6.3 where this was not an issue.

        We are still having the same problem as described above. Using version 1.8.3+ and only have the problem with IE. Works fine with Firefox. We have the problem using Mac OS10.5 Leopard and Windows XP.
        Thanks
