"Films on Demand"

Does anyone have any experience with inserting “Videos from website” using content from “Films on Demand”.  I’ve pasted the embed code but keep getting an error from storyline “Storyline cannot insert a video from this embed code.  Verify that the embed code is correct, and then try again”.  I’ve tried the URL as well and the result is the same.

Hey Peter, yes Web objects worked for me, but it pulls it in as a web page....so it's a good last resort option.

Berno, the site is http://digital.films.com/Dashboard.aspx but it's ezproxied so I'm guessing that's the real issue.    Here's an example of the embed code if that helps anyone:

function addLoadEvent(func) {var oldonload = window.onload;if (typeof window.onload != 'function') {window.onload = func} else {window.onload = function() {if (oldonload) {oldonload()}func()}}}addLoadEvent(function T50002(){document.getElementById("emb50002").innerHTML = "";});

Hi Scott,

We are also having issues with Films on Demand embed code not working in storyline.  The infobase company will whitelist domains for you so the proxy won't be an issue.  You should just need to strip out the proxy info once you have your domains added by infobase.

I would like to see a fix for the embed code.  Is this something the Articulate developers can address?

Hi, I am having the same problem as Scott; my embed code is: 

<div id='emb406142'></div><script type='text/javascript'>function addLoadEvent(func){var oldonload = window.onload;if (typeof window.onload != 'function') {window.onload = func} else {window.onload = function() {if (oldonload) {oldonload()}func()}}}</script><script type='text/javascript'>addLoadEvent(function S406142(){document.getElementById('emb406142').innerHTML='<iframe height=\'365\' frameborder=\'0\' width=\'580\' style=\'border: 1px solid #ddd;\' src=\'https://fod.infobase.com/OnDemandEmbed.aspx?token=94940&wID=151497&loid=406142&plt=FOD&w=560&h=315&ref=' + window.location.href + '\' allowfullscreen >&nbsp;</iframe>';});</script>
