Introduction Video

Jan 07, 2020

Hi there,

I've used a video to introduce the module I have been creating in Storyline. The slide it's on also has five navigation buttons. The video automatically plays when the module opens and I can navigate quite easily using the buttons. The problem I have is every time I go back to the main navigation page the video starts playing again. I just want it to play once.

Any ideas?

Another option is to put the video on it's own layer. Have it show layer when the timeline starts. That will launch the video. You can use a T/F variable to control if it shows the layer or not. 

  • Create a TF variable [playvideo] and set to True. 
  • Create trigger to show video layer when slide starts on condition that playvideo = True.
  • When they go to the video layer, set a trigger to change the variable to False. And when they revisit the slide, they won't see the video again.
