Video control features

Aug 15, 2022


I was wondering if there was a way to ensure that a video can only be played/paused by using the player controls and not by touching/clicking on the actual content?

Some users think, because the cursor changes from arrow to hand, that the video is a link, so when they click on it and the playback pauses but does nothing else, they think the 'link' is broken.

Any ideas are appreciated.

Thank you,

Hello Rehmat, 

Thanks for reaching out!

You can change the 'Play Video' option to automatically instead to prevent the learners from starting the video by clicking on it. 

Using the 'automatically' option will prevent learners from playing or stopping the video on the slide, which only the video controls and the player will be able to do. 

Let me know if this works for you!
