Need video to play from hard drive not output folder
We cannot stream large videos to our 500 + stores so we have our IT department send the video down to each store via a batch file. That video lives on the C: drive of local machines.
I have linked videos through the use of “web objects” and directed it to C:\LMS\VIDEOS\filename.html (Path to the video on the store’s local hard drive - every store is the same link)
I put in a support ticket to Articulate and here is the response I recieved:
"There isn't any way you can force Storyline to pull out the web objects from your local PC after publishing and viewing your course from your LMS provider. When publishing, it will always create a copy of your web objects from your local PC and place it under a folder in your output files. The compressed output files will then be uploaded to your LMS. When you view your course, it will always pull up the web objects from the output folder which has been uploaded to your LMS."
Does anyone have a workaround for this or any suggestions at all? We cannot stream videos on our network and I need to get this fixed as soon as I can.
