Wierd Video Issue

Hey all,

I recently inserted a video into a presentation and published it to our network drive (CD format).  I sent a hyperlink out to my team to have them take a look at it, but the video slide is blank.   When I navigate to the network folder and click on Run_Presentation, the presentation runs the video just fine.

FYI, we publish in CD format to allow for printing of test results.  We are not using an LMS.  Any idea why a hyperlink to a network drive would cause a video not to run?  Again, when the executable file is accessed directly, it runs fine.

No big deal, just wierd.

Thanks.  Mark

Jeff, thanks. 

The problem seems to be sourced in the hyperlink.  I have tried both the .exe and the .html flle through a hyperlink and the video does not run.  Navigating to the folder and clicking both files directly load up the video.

This is not a major issue, but it is a mystery.  Maybe as you mentioned there so unapparent blocking going on.   FYI, this happens on all my department PCs.

Anyway, I will provide a hyperlink to the folder in the future with instructions to access the file directly. 

Again, thanks for the feedback on my issue.  If I ever have the time to figure it out, I will let you know.
