Inserted mp4 video pauses when clicked

I inserted several video files into my course. When I preview a slide with a video, clicking on the section of the slide containing the video causes the video to pause. Clicking again causes the video to resume. I found that behavior when I accidentally clicked on the video.

Is this normal behavior? I don't see any way to prevent that from happening. I included the layer seekbar to control the video.

Hi Brian,

This discussion is a bit older, so it doesn't seem that idea's had a lot of traction. We do get tons of requests and ideas here in the forums and also through our feature request form.

We always love to hear feedback from our customers, and we take all of these suggestions into account. It can be a lot to digest, but here's how we manage all of the ideas we receive!

Hi there, I don't know who may need this, but this is what I do to solve the issue.

  1. Select the video
  2. Click on Options
  3. Change the Play video options from "Automatically" to "When Triggered".
  4. Set a trigger similar to " Play Media [Video_Name] when Timeline [Starts] on [This slide].

That does the trick all the time.
