HLS Video Streaming in SL 360 - Pointing to AWS S3?

Apr 17, 2023


Is there a way that I can have streaming video run from an AWS bucket?  I have copied the video streaming files to AWS and I would like to play that video from there.

Can I use some sort of iFrame or WebObject put in the Storyline slide that would reference the video to play from there?

Hi George, and thanks for reaching out!

You should be able to add a web object as you stated above. Here's how:

  1. Go to the Insert tab on the ribbon and click Web Object.
  2. Type the URL of the web page in the Address field.
  3. You can click Test Link to make sure your web content launches the way you expect, and choose if you want the web object to Display in slide or Display in a new browser window
  4. Mark the box to Load web object automatically if you want your web content to load without any interaction from the learner or uncheck the box if you want your web content to load only when learners click it.
