Problem with Videos and Resource Links

I'm new to Storyline and just created my first course!  After publishing to web, everything looks great except...

  • Two slides contain videos, which totally disappear when viewing the story.html file
  • The links on my Resource tab (in the player) don't work

I'm stuck.  :(  Any suggestions as to what could be causing these issues?

Hi Molly and welcome to Heroes!

Sorry that you've run into a bit of a snag, but I'm curious if you're testing your published content off your local drive? If testing on your local hard drive, you'll encounter security restrictions from the computer, web browser, Flash Player, and network that'll cause various features of your content to fail. To test your published content and share it with others, upload it to the environment for which it was published. 

If you don't have access to a web server, here are a few free options to consider:

  • Tempshare: This is a free service provided by Articulate for testing Storyline content. Note: Uploaded files will be deleted after 10 days.
  • Amazon S3: Amazon S3 offers free hosting with generous usage limits. If you go over your limit, you'll be charged a graduated fee.
  • Dropbox: Place your published output in the Public folder in your Dropbox account to share it with others.
  • Google Drive: Change the story.html file to index.html, and set the sharing permissions to PublicHere's how.

Hope that helps!
