Storyline - Inserting Videos into Articulate - file sizes
Nov 29, 2013
As previously discussed on the forums we are currently facing some major issues in our .story file as the size of our program is around 800mb. Due to the size the .story file we are having problems opening/publishing the file despite having a machine of the specification below:
OS: Windows 64 bit.
Based on this we have investigated this further and it seems as though Articulate add additional mb when inserting a video. For example when inserting a video its original size is 9.25mb when inserting it into Articulate the inserted size is 16.2 mb, this is a difference of nearly 7mb.
We have seen many examples of this in our program and as we have well over 100 videos in the program this is a lot of additional space that we think we can save, which will help us open and publish the file.
Does anyone know why this may be happening; are there any settings we can potentially change so that this does not happen?
We believe if we can save this space it will considerable help us in opening and maintaining the file.
If anyone has any thoughts or ideas please get in touch this would be much appreciated.
