Duplicate videos when you place a video in a slide layout
The module that I am creating requires that multiple slides have the same video play automatically.
I placed one video inside a slide layout so that I only include the video once in the .story file. The problem now is that when Storyline 2 publishes the content it creates an exact copy of the video for every slide that uses the layout. (20 slides so far) Now I have 20 2.8mb .mp4 files in my published content. This is very bad.
I found this discussion which is very close to the issue that I was encountering. Based on that discussion, it seems that there is an issue with Storyline 2 not maintaining a way to reference the same video on multiple slides.
I tried to copy / paste the same video on multiple slides, and it still resulted in a video for each slide. Apparently this issue doesn't exist in Storyline 1.
The same duplication issue doesn't seem to apply to other assets on slide layout (like images, shapes, etc.), only videos.
I would love to put in a bug / feature request. Can someone direct me to the page where I would put in such a request.
