Video Delivery in AO
I have just published a StoryLine course consisting of 7 slides - one menu slide with six thumbnail buttons to each their corresponding video, residing on each their lightbox slide.
These videos are somewhat large - together the entire course is about 430Mb.
The problem I am experiencing is a very very long buffering period for each video - it literally takes several minutes for the first frame to reach me, regardless of the fact that I am on a very fast corporate connection (although I have tested this with other broadband connections as well.)
I understand that AO does not stream or pseudo stream, but as progressive downloads go, it is way too slow - our learners will click out of the course long before the several minutes are up - especially since there is no indication that a video is loading (using StoryLine playbar etc.)
How has Articulate envisioned delivery of video material in SL and AO? Are there options for setting buffer times? streaming settings? What am I missing
Thank you in advance for your help with this...
