Embedding a video or inserting it as a web object


I'm trying to insert an embedded video into Storyline (from Brightcove) and I am having a bunch of issues getting it to work properly. I tried inserting the video as a web object  and it worked perfectly so I am thinking of going that route instead. I have worked with embed codes a lot more than with web objects. What are some advantages/disadvantages of using web objects instead of embed codes, specifically for videos?

Hello Yanina - I'm hoping some of your fellow community members chime in with some of their experience/best practices here. My first thought on advantage is space/size and this tutorial shares some of our best practices for web objects since you mention not having really utilized this functionality before.

Thank you Leslie! One issue that I am having with inserting a video as a web object is that it doesn't auto play. Under 'options' I set the video to auto load and under 'edit web object' I also checked the load object automatically check box. I've published a few videos and have to click on it to get it to play. Any ideas?
