Storline 1 - Gif and Video links.


I need some urgent help regarding GIF images and embedded video links in one of my module designed on Storyline 1.

I have a GIF image as a background on my slides and have buttons with triggers to play a video when clicked upon. When I preview the unit/module, the GIF images show up the way it should. The button with the link to play a video behaves well. It tells me that it can't take me to the website because we haven't published the module. 

Upon publishing the GIF image does not show up and the button does nothing when the module/unit is accessed on Internet Explorer. The Story file in the output folder does not work. The HTML5 file works but the GIF does not show up. When I open the unit in Chrome the video link works but the GIF image does not show. 

Which output option should I choose? Which web browser should I use? Which file in the output folder should be used? Please help.
