JWPlayer v6 in Storyline - how do I monitor start/completion?
Hi there Geniuses. I just wanted to know if anyone had an explanation or walkthrough of how to 'record' within Storyline if someone has clicked on (and also completed viewing) a video that has been linked via web object (and played through JWPlayer 6 - not the latest v7) to an HTML file I can edit?
I have a number of videos that my client wants to access via JWPlayer and I can embed and publish these HTML files with my project. I just need to understand how Storyline 'communicates' with externally referenced files (web objects) especially if the video files are then on a third-party server.
Normally I would directly import into the timeline and have all the in-built flexibility that Storyline offers via triggers and timeline based variables, but I cannot for the life of me, figure out how to have the same degree of control via web object videos.
Someone asked something similar 3 years ago (https://community.articulate.com/discussions/articulate-storyline/using-an-external-player-for-video-playback-via-cdn-using-jwplayer) and unfortunately the link in the answer doesn't really help or explain.
Basically, I need to monitor if someone has clicked the play button on the JWPlayer video, and/or also record if the video is played till completion.
Is that doable you crazy, wild-haired, madly wonderful brainiacs?
