Replaying a video using the replay marker

Mar 07, 2013

I inserted a video in a slide.  I've created the pause and play buttons and they work well.  However, I can't seem to figure out how to replay the video within the slide using the marker.  Do I need to use variables?

Thanks in advance for your unending support!

Hi Jay,

Without seeing the course, I may not able to provide many suggestions for this, but hopefully we can find something that works for you

You could use a variable, that would adjust when the media completes.. but personally, I like to stay away from those. 

What other content is on your slide? Do you have the video starting automatically? If it's just the video and it plays automatically, you could try setting the slide to "reset to initial state" and have a "jump to slide" trigger for the same slide. Again, though, I haven't played with this, just a thought. 

If you'd like to share your .STORY file here, maybe I (or others) can give some suggestions.

Seems like you're answering all my questions  

I tried to upload my sample but I kept getting errors, maybe my video file was too large.  Basically, I have entrance animations so restarting the slide at the end of the video would reanimate and I wouldn't want that.  Maybe I can have another layer open at the end of the video with the same video. 

Thanks for your help!

Hi Jay,

Sorry about that. Yes, if the file's too large there may be an issue uploading it here. You can always send it over to our support team. They can provide some suggestions and if you share the number with me, I can take a look, too.

I like the idea of using the layers.. but then, again, I'm a huge layer fan

I hope you're having a great day!
