Use markers to pause a video using the Visited states
Mar 19, 2015
I want to pause a Video using markers and triggers to add information to my learners. I made 2 tests.
First test (video marker.story), I have added markers, displayed at different moments in the time line, and I have created triggers using the sole state "Normal" of the marker (defaut state) . That seems to work. The video is paused when the marker is displayed.
But, because I would like to force the learner to display all the Markers before jumping to the next slide, I have added a new "Visited" state to the markers in order to trigger display of the Next Button.
So I did it in the second test (video marker 2.story). However, in this case the video doesn't pause when the marker is displayed. Why is it different ?
I think to have other solutions to pause the video (using cue points for example) but my question is about the markers states. In fact, I don't understand the difference due to the visited state, and I don't know if my tests run correctly or if there is a bug in the first or second or both tests.
Note that if anybody has experience with my needs (force learner to see all markers on a video before jumping to next slide) he is welcomed.
Thanks for help.
Bonus Add-on : I realize that with the added Visited state of the Marker the Replay button of the play bar no longer works depending of the "When revisiting" option is. So, if you want to remove the Replay bouton or more follow this explanation :
