Embedding Vimeo videos into Storyline 2 and customizing

Hi, I was recently at the eLearning Solutions conference in Orlando, FL. I visited with the folks in the Articulate booth and they were very helpful. I am embedding videos from Vimeo into Storyline 2. What I want to do is not have the Vimeo player bar show in the Storyline file. We are wanting our learners to watch the entire video before going to the next slide. When I visited the Articulate booth they showed me the under the embed section in Vimeo that I could not show the player bar. I have upgraded my account to Vimeo Plus and still do not have that option. I contacted Vimeo and their reply was: Sorry, it’s not currently possible to hide the player control bar on the Vimeo player. I am now wondering what I saw in the Articulate booth. Is there a way to control this? Attached is an example of the file I want to customize the video in.

There might be another way to do this, but I used instructions from here: http://www.cssplay.co.uk/menu/cssplay-vimeo-hide-control-bar.html

Your vimeo overlay logo might be missing, but take a look at the attached story file, it should at least get you close. I did not implement the code for the ipad.

Hi Cynthia,

I'm not sure if Arthur is still subscribed here, as the post is a bit older - but you could always use the "contact me" button on a ELH users' profile to reach out to them directly!

The play button in the HTML5 output is expected in Storyline - but I know some folks here in the community have worked around it using custom settings such as above.

Best of luck with your project!
