      Description

      Since some time the multimedia filter shows the media format in front of the player. Nobody wants to know this and the additional words are linking to the media file ... bad thing if you want to hide the file.

      If you look at the picture ... the first "mp3 audio" should be "link" because it's easy to set a link to a mp3 file. The second and third "mp3 audio" should be move away because I wanted to hide the file links.

      Same thing also happens with Quicktime videos .... not useful!

        One way to eliminate these links is to empty the relevant strings in moodle/lang/en_utf8/mediaplugin.php. For example, change

        $string['mp3audio'] = 'MP3 audio';

        to

        $string['mp3audio'] = '';

        This bug should really be fixed without having to resort to the workaround suggested by Itamar!

        I really don't see any reason why the multimedia filter adds this link automatically. It should be up to the creator to add such links, as needed. The multimedia filter should only be adding the player, in my opinion. I support removing this "feature" altogether.

        I do language testing for large groups and this bug is creating many problems. Having the embedded player is fine and helpful, but having another link which leads to a download or other player opening up is a disaster in our situation. Please correct it.
