    dans la rubrique “Streaming vidéo” quand vous dite ;
    “Son système intégré empêche tout accès non autorisé au contenu hébergé de manière native.” Cela veut-il dire que seul les vidéos télécharger sur notre serveur seront automatiqument protégé?

    • Tashfia Fareed July 31, 2019

      Bonjour @bnicomette. Yes, it means that only videos uploaded to your server are automatically protected. Unauthorized users cannot access those videos by pasting the lesson URL. Hope this helps!

    Great write up and cool plugin.
    Is it compatible with WPML plugin for multilingual course?
    Secondly, one common LMS plugin is wpcourseware and others. How easy would it be for someone who has a developed and productive course migrate from such plugins to tutor LMS?

    • Tashfia Fareed April 18, 2019

      Thank you!
      Tutor LMS is multilingual-ready. We have submitted Tutor LMS for compatibility report with WPML and still waiting for the final review. Once we get it, we’ll surely inform you.
      Unfortunately, right now we don’t have any migration tools but we’ll introduce that very soon. Stay connected with us for more news!
