Embed a video without using an iframe tag - SL360
I have a particularly tricky task with one client. We have created an interactive video learning module which includes a series of videos and plays a particular strand of the story based on a series of choices the user makes along the journey.
We have now been told by our client that videos cannot be streamed from Vimeo as it is not an approved service and that the videos need to be on their own Media delivery server.
So after all this I am stuck with too many obstacles and no solutions from their tech team! Their latest suggestion is to embed videos into Storyline using the <video></video> tags instead of <iframe></iframe> but SL360 doesnt like this and wont allow me.
I have tried putting their working HTML page into an inserted web object as in theory that would work, until their media server throws up and error and says the content is unable to be played within an iframe.
Does video embedding in SL360 have to be done specifically through an iframe tag or has anyone got any other tips or tricks to getting around this? The suggested code they have given me, but SL360 dislikes, to embed the videos is:
<video id="mdsVideo" preload="none" autoplay="" poster="https://mds.novartis.net/wp-core/wp-admin/admin-ajax.php?action=downloadvideo&vid=18948&type=thumb" src="https://mds.novartis.net/wp-core/wp-admin/admin-ajax.php?action=downloadvideo&vid=18948&type=video" controls controlsList="nodownload" oncontextmenu="return false" preload="none" style="width:100%">Your browser is not able to play this video format.</video>
