We are going to use BigBlueButton for virtual meetings in our courses. I was very happy to find the plugin by Andres Ederra (http://sourceforge.net/projects/bbb-ilias-plug/).
Unfortunately, the plugin doesn't work proper on our installation (ILIAS 4.2.4).
In the configuration setup, there are fields for a public and a private url and for corresponding ports. But they behave strange: after saving, both urls and both ports have the same data (they have been different before saving).
In courses or other objects, the BigBlueButton object appears in the list 'Add new item'. By clicking it, a fatal error occours:
Fatal error: Call to undefined method ilObjBigBlueButtonGUI::deactivateCreationForm() in /var/www/ilias/Customizing/global/plugins/Services/Repository/RepositoryObject/BigBlueButton/classes/class.ilObjBigBlueButtonGUI.php on line 57
Any ideas why this happens?
Is anybody of you running BigBlueButton successfully with ILIAS 4.2.4?
Looking forwards to your experiences and responses!
Many thanks in advance and kind regards,

Many thanks for your help to peshovec and and kmonov!!
I just tried it and commented line 57 in "class.ilObjBigBlueButtonGUI.php". And I got one step further: I can now create an BBB object. But I'm not able to start it. When I try to start the session, the following error appears at the top of the page:QuoteErrorWarning: simplexml_load_file(http://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:80/bigbluebutton/api/create?name=ilias-bbb_ILIAS_4301_1&meetingID=ilias-bbb_ILIAS_4301_1&attendeePW=3bc863a26d6b06e8&moderatorPW=0e2dc282346ba1b1&voiceBridge=72363&logoutURL=https%3A%2F%2Fsub.domain.de%2Filias%2Fgoto.php%3Ftarget%3Dxbbb_1263%26client_id%3DILIAS&welcome=fghfhfgh&checksum=f400dfe98c9855cb71afd855723e44a70977186f): failed to open stream: HTTP request failed!

The new browser window that opens the same time, has the following content:QuoteThe page you are looking for is temporarily unavailable.
Please try again later.
I assume that this has something to do with our internal settings. Right now BBB is only accesible in the university network. Could that be the reason?
Btw: the errors which kmonov mentiioned still remain, there is still the message "-rep_robj_xbbb_saving_invoked-" after saving.
I tried to delete the files and copied them again. But I guess I have to delete the entries in the database as well?!?
Thanks in advance for further tips!

Hi all, we had the same problem with plugin version 0.0.2 and ILIAS 4.3.1. So i forked the version from Andres into a new version which works for me in ILIAS 4.3.1. You can download it at https://sourceforge.net/projects/bigbluebuttonil/
