Embedded Streamed Videos
Jan 10, 2013
I've been exploring embedding a video via inserting a web object and it's not working the way I hoped. So, I'm reaching out to the Articulate community to help me find a solution. The reason I'm exploring embedding videos via a web object is to have the ability to stream them from a video streaming vendor, instead of embedding the video into the Storyline file and housing them on our LMS web server via SCORM upload. At some point I foresee future videos being as long, if not longer than an hour. Ideally I would like a seamless process from watching the video, to other slides that contain a variety of interactions about the video. Since I have not explored any video streaming vendors I created test file using this YouTube link - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3SXdYioYwmo&feature=youtu.be - and received an error, see the attached image. I don't want the user to have to view the video in a different window, then come back to finish the lesson. I have not worked with any video streaming vendors so I'm not sure if this would be an issue depending on the vendor and/or access settings, or if it is possible to embed player code into Storyline to steam a video.
Thank you in advance for ideas or work around suggestions.
