Change video resolution based on bandwidth

Jan 20, 2023

We produce content which is translated into up to 42 languages. Inevitably, some of these countries have poor bandwidth. We have had a comment from our client about some video taking longer to load etc. in areas with restrictive bandwidth. Back when I used to produce content in Flash, I could check the bandwidth of the end-user and based on that information, serve up the appropriate resolution video for them (just like YouTube does now).

Does anyone know of a way this can be achieved without duplicating the actual Storyline content (ie. duplicating the file and inserting a lower resolution video file for low bandwidth areas)? Obviously I know the videos will need to be produced in a selection of resolutions but my goal is to have one Storyline file which can provide the end-user the best user experience based on their bandwidth.
