Maximum # of videos in an Engage interaction

Feb 14, 2011

Is there a maximum # of videos that you can include in an Engage interaction? We are doing a project with the Process interaction. Each step has a video that is <2GB (about 2-3 mins). 8 of the videos go in the interaction without any problem. The last 2 are not working correctly. What happens is they look like they are accepted into the interaction but the interaction application locks up when I try to close it. When I force it closed, the videos which had been loaded and saved do not appear once the course is packaged. Are we bumping up against system limits?

Hello and welcome to the forums! I would strongly discourage you from using files that size in an Engage interaction. If your video is really 2 gigabytes for only 2 to 3 minutes, they really wouldn't be playable in any real world scenario. Take a look at this calculator and redo the videos so that they are a more reasonable size:

A 2 to 3 minute video might be several megabytes but should never be 2 gigabytes. If you are using the Articulate Video Encoder to create your videos, you can customize the dimensions and the audio and video bitrates to create a more user friendly video:
