Embedded Streamed Videos

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.

Hmm, for troubleshooting purposes, have you tried inserting the video using the Insert > Video > Video from Website optionThere are two ways to add a YouTube video to Storyline:

   *  Insert > Video > Video from Website

   *  Insert > Web Object

Each method has its unique benefits, and if you're able to view the video when inserting it via Storyline vs. web object, that might help clear up the issue.
