Start course at particular date and time?

I'm doing some testing with loading webcasts into our LMS as SCORM packages. I will have a live or pre-recorded video stream embedded into my Storyline project. I would like the course to start only at a particular time, and I think I can do this with javascript calls to my embedded video, to make the video start playing.

Has anyone done something like this before? How did you get the current date/time?

I don't want this to be dependent on the local date/time, which could be altered, but get the date/time from a server online.

Any suggestions? Thanks!

Yes, that's a little different than what we're trying to do now. In that instance, the video stream provider is starting the stream. Our current provider doesn't have that capability, so I'd like to see if I can have Storyline start playing the video at a particular date/time. I think I just need some sample code that will grab the current date/time from an Internet server and then set off a SL trigger. Thanks.
