mp4s dimmed in HTML5 output
I'm wracking my brain trying to find out the cause of dimmed mp4s (~7-8%) in published HTML5 output using the latest Storyline 3 update. I don't recall this ever occurring before and it makes the content look dingy. Some videos that are dim will be normal if I try them later and vise-versa and slides behave totally different on different QCs even when all other conditions are the same, which leads me to believe it has something to do with loading, but I can't figure it out. I've tried everything I can think of any other ideas?
- All my videos are HD MP4 only (up to 1080p) produced with Camtasia
- I tried changing all my videos to non-compressed in Storyline, no success, maybe worse
- I replaced all the videos with newly produced files, and I also tried reformatting the exported videos so that they were as close as possible to the produced storyline mp4, no success
- I tried producing as wmv instead, no success
- I tried producing as avi, and then using handbrake to convert to settings similar to storyline's compressed file, no success, and poor quality video
- All my videos have no entry animation/transitions and a hotspot over them to prevent clicking the video to stop/start
- I tried deleting the hotspot just as a test, no success
- I tried to make the hotspot 99% transparent, I tried changing the hotspot interior color to white and making it 99% transparent, and I tried to eliminate the need for the hotspot by triggering the videos instead, which all spottily worked
I really need to find a consistent solution to the video dimming, if anyone has run into this before or has another idea, please share!!
