Is there a way to bookmark in the middle of an embedded video?

Jun 28, 2018

Greetings all!

We have a very long video on a page in a Storyline 2 created course. We would like to either automatically or manually (by the learner clicking a button) create a bookmark in the middle of the video, so when the learner leaves and then returns to the course, they don't have to start the video again from the beginning. Is this possible and if so, how?

Thanks and cheers, Russ

The blog Alyssa recommended only works if you have the video in several parts on distinct slides.

Of, course, that shouldn't be a problem. Breaking up a video is definitely worth the effort. SL handles lots of short videos much better than one long one, as do your learners, and anybody working on the project. win-win-win!!!

Thank you Alyssa and Walt. I agree with you, Walt, in that Alyssa's recommendation, although a unique solution, doesn't work with videos unless that video is chuncked, which gets back to the original issue (trying NOT to chunck the video).  The best option is going to be to chuck the video into 2 or more segments (no segment longer than 5 minutes) and put each chunk on sequential slides, with auto advance to the next slide when the current video segment completes.

IF anyone else has any better solution, I'd love to hear about it.

Happy 4th of July everyone!
