Storyline 360-Keyboard Triggers to Play an Embedded Video

Nov 13, 2018


Can you have a video- with an embed code pulled from youtube- play with a trigger?

I'm only seeing two trigger options; for media to record from a webcam and to play a video from file.

I need this video from youtube to be set up and not autoplay (which is set) and to begin playing via keyboard keys when the learner is ready, for Accessibility and 508 standards-

I can't seem to get it set though, any information or help would be great! 

Thank you!

Hi Arin,

Youtube has some additional parameters you could add to the embed code to accomplish this, but keep in mind a lot of them will only work with the Flash output. 

Another idea is to create a slide with a play button, and allow that button to show a new slide or layer where the video actually resides and can start automatically. You could set that up to be triggered by a keyboard click or even a mouse click on the button. 

Hope that helps!
