Here’s a time saver for those of you using Youtube videos in your Moodle courses. Did you know that a simple link like “http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Six2mhNeJcg“ will embed the video automatically in Moodle if you have the Youtube Multimedia Filter enabled? No more flipping to plain text or configuring the embed code: just paste and save!
Here’s the info you need about it for your Moodle site (the feature must be enabled at the admin level): http://docs.moodle.org/20/en/Multimedia_plugins.
To enable the feature as Admin on Moodle 1.9, go to Modules -> Filters -> Multimedia filters and check the box. Below is a great video which highlights the process of using the feature.
