Storyline: Publishing to Mp4 for YouTube

Jan 17, 2017

I have a file that we created for a client that they now want disaggregated and the portion that is cut out (it is not interactive) put on their YouTube channel. Is there an easier way than doing a screen capture to save the file as an mp4?

Hi Debra - Storyline doesn't publish to a single file, so what you'd need to do is publish the course and then record the published output using a tool such as Replay (if you're an existing Storyline customer, click here to get your free license of Articulate Replay) or recording it within Storyline and exporting out the MP4.

Hi Sally,

I didn't see any error message here, just the piece you wrote on Apple QuickTime player. Is that what you're seeing when adding the video?  Are you using a Mac or Windows computer? What version of PPT are you attempting to add the video into? 

You mentioned opening the file where it was published, but if you've published Storyline to video there should only be one file to access. Double check that you're publishing to video, locally and then adding that individual file into your Powerpoint. 

If you want to share the video file here that may give us some other clues!

Hi Leslie, I had to restart from a fresh project since I think my PPT was corrupt as a result of working off my network drive. I have it working now and published it in web format. How can I now make it work off of a network drive so I can share it with others? I have tried copying and pasting all related files to the network drive but it still will not open.

Hi Sally!

It sounds like you want to share the published content, is that right? Check out these two options:

  1. The fastest way to publish and share your project would be to publish it to Articulate 360. Then, your content will be online, and you'll have a link you can send to anyone who needs to view the content. It's a quick and easy solution!
  2. You can also publish the content for Web and host the output on a web server. The benefit of this option is the content is hosted on your own server, and the slides won't be surrounded by the Articulate Review frame. 

Let me know if either of those options would work for you!
