Replaying video in Storyline 2

Apr 11, 2016

In my current project, the video (mp4 format) replays when the learner clicks anywhere on screen but the captions I have overlaid on the video don't reset, they remain on screen. They remain on screen while the whole video replays. Is it possible to set the captions to reset with the video?

Thank you so much for all the help,  I do have one other question relating to videos.  Is there a way to stop the video replaying if a learner clicks on it.  I have videos which fill the entire screen with customised navigation buttons overlaid.  If the learner misses the Next button for example, and clicks the video instead, it replays from the beginning.  Is there any way to stop this?

Hi Lisa!  You might be able to use an invisible shape over the video to stop that behavior; if there is no trigger associated with the shape, clicking on it will not have any result.  You would have to squish it between your video and your captions on the timeline.

I wasn't sure, though, if you wanted the learner to be able to click the video to replay.  If you used my workaround, you'd need another method to replay the video (video controls or a button to replay, e.g.).  If you wanted it to play automatically upon revisiting the slide, you would be sure to have that video set to play automatically, as well.
