scaling video to size of web object ?

May 30, 2019

I have a video on a slide that I would like to have a full screen control.  Apparently this is not an option with an imported video.  So I tried using a web object linked to an index file containing standard a video tag with controls enabled.  The Story is sized to 1280 x 720. The video is 1920 x 1080 but I'm using CSS styles to make the video fit 100% screen width.  This works fine outside of Storyline but when published in Storyline the video does not scale to the web object window. It remains 1920 x 1080 and scroll bars appear.

How do I get the video to scale to the web object?

Michael, thanks for the spectacular help, here!!

Ray, it sounds like the last issue is getting your video to play. Michael is right – many browsers are restricting autoplay of media without first engaging with the content. Chrome has made a few approaches to this restriction over the last year. Here's more detail.

If you need additional help, please let me know!
