Imbedding WISTIA hosted videos
I have video-intensive course for pump testing with our company. The first draft 1s 1.4 gigabytes unpublished.
1) LOCAL DRIVE SPACE SHOULD BE IRRELEVANT, but isn't - Our network is HUGE. My desktop is tiny. We do all of our content creation on the the network, and publish to our Intranet and LMS from there.
When I have less than 1.4gig available on my desktop (C:) (which is frequently), this particular project won't seem to save on the NETWORK (H:). This is a dangerous reality for me, on this one project. No other course has come close to this level of videography.
How to get Storyline to not take the local C: drive into consideration when saving files to H:?
2) CONTROLLING EXTERNAL VIDEOS THROUGH WISTIA
Our company has WISTIA for posting video-footage. So I uploaded several of the videos from this course to there, then made a version of the project that calls those external videos into slides, it seems to be working. The problem this introduces is that the user seems to have to specifically START the video on each slide.
This is bad since I would need to use timeline triggers to move from one slide/layer to the next, and the interactive controls and clickables inside storyline need to appear at the right moments during each clip.
In this example, after you select the DVSERVIES - 325 and below, the next slide does not start right away, and for every second the user delays, we lose that much of the video at the end since the slides auto-progress to next slide.

How do we get WISTIA slides to start immediately? Or how can I properly advance to the next slide when the WISTIA video finally concludes based on the random time the user clicks on it? Either solution is fine...
The WISTIA approach seems awesome, the Storyline file goes from 1.4 gigs to 4megs.
