Embedded video options

Our courses are video heavy, and we were looking to boost our video quality, which is going to involve hosting our videos elsewhere then packaging them directly into the course.

Here's what I know:

  • It is possible to embed YouTube videos directly into a Presenter slide.
  • It is also possible to load the FLV directly into the course.

But what I want to know:

  • Is it possible to embed videos from other video streaming sites? (Ex:  Vimeo, Dailymotion, Hulu, etc).
  • Is it possible to embed any html code into Presenter?  What about iframe code?
  • Is it possible to serve the FLV file on a server outside the Presenter/SCORM package, and still be able to embed it?

There are probably other things I could add to this, and will most likely as the discussion progresses, but this will suffice for now.

For all of those options, look at using the "Web Object" item. I have used iFrames with embedded videos from outside sources in several courses with this and have had not problem. Now, that's not to say your firewall might block them after being loaded into the LMS, it all depends on your setup and security.

You can add video from any website where the video has a URL, or if you can use some simple embed code.

You can add anything as a local web object, provided that it is a folder with an index.html file. See:

So if you can create a web page, chances are you can use it in Presenter.

You can stream a Flash movie by following the steps outlined here:

The one drawback to using a web object or a streaming movie is that you won't be able to control the Flash movie using Presenter's controls.
