Hi Nate - Storyline does not have a playlist like in Articulate Presenter. One option might be to insert the audio in the slide master.  If you do this the audio will play on every slide - the only drawback is that the audio track will restart at the beginning of each slide. This could work for you if you have the right audio track.

Hi Nate - here's a technique for looping videos on the slide masters. It will work for your audio clip, too. Like Nancy mentioned, your clip should be designed to loop so there isn't a hard stop/start each time it loops.


David and Nancy make a good point in that the audio file should loop as seamlessly as possible, otherwise it'll sound awkward every time the loop restarts.

I use a software package called SmartSound, and allows me to create loops that usually have a pretty clean transition at the restart point. If you can't get your sound file to work the way you want, send me a PM and I'll give you a hand.

One thing you can do is add the audio track to the published html output using JavaScript. I have not tried it yet but Steve suggests one way to do it in this post. http://community.articulate.com/forums/p/25873/143142.aspx

I think there might even be an easier way than what he suggests but like I said I have not tried it yet.

HI Ashley, this was something I was looking at trying today.  I see this post goes back six years...any chance I can do this now.  I have a music file that I would love for it to play across multiple slides on a low volume...

I saw there was mention of a feature request, so perhaps it is doable in 360 now?

Thanks
