Object to appear once media starts

I have another question.  I tried multiple ways to get this red arrow to only come out once the media is played, but it just doesn't seem to be an option. Right now I have it set to come out at 8 seconds on the slide, but this isn't what I want.  I even tried hidden states and such.  The goal is for the arrow to come out once the media is played .

Hey Kristen,

I assume you are asking about the Red Arrow on the slide layer?

If so, take a look at your file attached. I duplicated your slide, so look at the second slide, and used a hidden state that adjusted to normal when the media completed.

Let me know if that's what you are looking for.

thanks for this!  My goal was for it to pop up at 3 seconds and remain there until; it was finished.


Also, I have a question I have searched the discussions for and found no answer.  How can you get audio to play in the background of a video?  Do you have any content library free audio files that I am not aware of yet

Hi Kristen,

I also answered your other post here. 

We've yet to add audio files as a media option in Content Library, but a new feature you may find helpful for organizing your own audio and video files is the new Media Library. Take a look at Mike's post here with a helpful video and link to the newest tutorial.  This was released yesterday in Storyline 360, build 3.24.17733.0
