Screen Recording Scene - "Try Me" plays fine in Preview but hangs when published

Aug 06, 2015

I have a scene that is made up of a screen recording scene "Try Me" and some seperate audio files that I put on the pages.  It players perfectly during the preview, and as part of previewing the entire presentation.  But after publishing, it doesn't play the second page of audio I inserted and and I get a spinning wheel early into the scene apparently showing me that it can't play the next portion of the recording.  It never comes out of the "hanging".


Any thoughts on why something works fine in preview but not when published?

It was published for "web" and the files are sitting on the same local computer that I'm trying to play them from.  I published at the "auto" quality.

The presentation plays fine up until this point.

Any insight would be appreciated.
