It is possible if you use a third-party video player, such as JWPlayer, to manage your video. But you'd need a server for the video and video player and would use a web object to display it in Storyline. 

Quick overview:

  • Create a text variable in Storyline called Video_Started
  • Set up your timeline so it is paused when it initially starts
  • Add another trigger that resumes the timeline when the Video_Started variable changes to Yes
  • Add the following code to the index.html used by JWPlayer:
 events: {
onPlay: function() {
var player = window.parent.GetPlayer();
player.SetVar("Video_Started", "Yes");
}
}

This will then result in the timeline starting when the video begins playing.
