Video being pushed up after publication with SL3 in Windows 10
I ran into a weird issue with SL3 when dealing with a video slide. Here's the rundown:
- The slide has an imported video.
- That video was "brought to back" at the bottom of the timeline to avoid hiding other elements, such as custom navigation.
- The project was published in SL3 using SCORM 1.2
- The slide within the project appeared to work fine as attended in my LMS environment, but I was working on Windows 7.
- A colleague of mine tested it on Windows 10, and it glitched, as the custom navigation buttons were "missing" from the slides. Depending on your Internet connection, it can happen that the project has trouble loading some assets.
- The video was full screen, so I resent him the project with the video resized. The issue occured again, but this time, we noticed that the buttons were half visible, like the video was on top of them. We couldn't see those elements because the video was resized to fit the entire screen.
- I rechecked the timeline, and the video was still at the bottom of the timeline.
- I upgraded to Articulate 360 (all intended prior to finding the issue, no obligation, the Articulate staff can confirm) and republished the project at first in Review 360, and it worked, without the video hiding the buttons. It was both checked on my work station with Windows 7 and on my colleague's station with Windows 10.
- I republished it on my LMS, and low and behold, it worked, for both OS.
- Please note that we were both using Chrome, but when my colleague cleaned his cookies and browser, the issue was also present in a previous version of the project, on his station.
In short, it seemed like the video was "brought to [the] front (top)" of the timeline upon publishing. It's like if you were working on a PSD file and then upon saving for web, the bottom layer was pushed at the very top of the stack. It was also with only videos, not any other type of assets.
As anyone ran into such an issue? It was on Windows 10, using SL3 (version 3.4.15731.0), with SCORM 1.2, on Chrome, in an LMS site. I don't have the info on the version for some of these stuff, that's the best I can provide.
