Text and image disappear when cursor rollover on a vimeo embedded video

Mar 16, 2016

Hi everybody,
I'm having an issue with the embedding of video.
I have embedded a vimeo video and it is set to occupy all the project area.
In my project the video should be full screen and logo and title should always be visualized in the top left corner of the screen.
When I roll over the video all the images and texts disappear. Instead, if the cursor is out of the video area, all the elements appear again.
Someone can help me?


Thank you in advance,

Hi, Dana -- Thanks for touching base, and the following is the response Chiara received from our Support Engineer, Cleo:

"In Articulate Storyline 2, you can layer slide content on top of website videos and web objects. However, when a learner hovers over the embedded web content, it'll temporarily move to the topmost layer, which may cover other objects on the slide. See this article for details.

Please note that this is by design. If you wanted to have your text display on top the video I suggest that you either import/embed the video on the slide, or preview the video and text, then create a screen recording using Replay. Export the recorded video as .MP4 and replace the Web Video and text with the .MP4." 

I hope that information along with what Brett provided will answer your question, but please let us know if you need anything further! :)

Thank you for your reply. I deliver content in an LMS. It's best for our
learners to view streaming video rather than progressive download. We
typically use Vimeo for streaming. The problem is we often want to ensure
the learner is fully watching the video and not simply skipping to the next
slide. I can make the length of the timeline match the length of the video
to force the learner to remain on the page, but I want to hide the controls
on the video player. Vimeo allows me to hide the playhead, but it's a
global change and I don't want it to be applied to every video. Bottom
line, I want to find a way to control the learners pace in a streaming
video. Any ideas?
