Video not playing in Chrome browser when embedded in Sakai LMS

Jul 25, 2014

In Google Chrome when I embed the link to a presentation in Sakai (our learning management system) it will not play in the browser. It does play in Chrome when just typing in the url to the presentation. Anyone have any experience with embedding Storyline within Sakai?

Hi Sharon,

This may be a couple of things. It could be the hosting server (your LMS) or it could be the type of URL.

Have you had the chance to test the course itself outside of the LMS? If not, I recommend doing so using one of the following options:

  • I suggest using SCORM Cloud for your course - it's a great place to test SCORM content.
  • Another option would be to use our Tempshare server. Just keep in mind that this server is only available for testing content - it is not officially supported by Articulate and all content will be removed automatically after 10 days.
  • You're always welcome to try out Articulate Online, as well - it's available for a free 30 day trial.

If you continue to have trouble with this, it may help to share the URL or embed code for the video here, so we can take a look.

Just remember that you may need to break up the code a bit. It may be best to share this in a .txt file if possible, just to make sure it doesn't cause an issue with the thread. Or, if you're able to, try sharing the .story file for the project.

Hi Christine,

Thanks! I'm going to see if anyone in the Sakai community might help. I didn't export this as SCORM compliant module. I exported as HTML5 and embedded the link into the Lessons tool. Outside of Sakai the link works fine in Chrome but when embedded in Sakai it will not play. So it's not an issue with Storyline.

Thanks again,
