The VidGrid Moodle OEmbed Plugin allows instructors to copy and paste video links which will then automatically embed the video through an oEmbed plugin. To enable the plugin, follow the instructions below:

  • Upload your ZIP by drag and drop or select the zip file from your computer.
  • Click "Install plugin from the ZIP file"

That's it! Now when you insert a VidGrid link anywhere in the rich text editor in Moodle, the video will be embedded into the field instead of redirecting as an external link.
