Hi Virgina

If the video plays on its own layer or is the last thing to "finish" on a particular layer/slide, then you can create a trigger to move elsewhere as follows (e.g. jump to next slide):

- jump to slide (or whatever you want)

- next slide (or wherever)

- when timeline ends

- object: this slide/layer etc

Thanks Simon!  This is my first Vimeo video used in Storyline.  It is only object on this specific slide.  I have video coded for 'autoplay' but was concerned about what will happen if there is any internet delay time before it actually starts to play.  If I set timeline for specific time period (length of video), any delays may cause the slide to advance before the video ends.  I wasn't sure whether Storyline can actually determine when a video starts/ends so slide can auto-advance or if I need to set the timeline for a specific period and add in a few 'just in case' seconds.

Ah, you're pulling in the video as a web object?  Sorry, I was looking at this as an embedded video.  I'm not in front of SL you can't remember what happens to the timeline with web objects - IIRC it defaults to something like 5 or 10 seconds?  

Seeing as videos can delay or stutter, could you have the learner click a button or something else to move on once the video has finished?

If Storyline cannot 'see' when a video has actually ended, it seems the solution will be to have learner manually advance to next slide. 

From what I've read, it appears Articulate handles YouTube videos a little better than videos hosted by other sites.  Does anyone know if the automatic advance to next slide works better if the video is hosted on YouTube instead of Vimeo?

Thanks.
