Video on page won't allow me to advance to next page right away


I'm wondering if anyone has seen this issue...I have created a 3 slide course: introduction, video slide and final exam. The video slide contains an hour long .mp4 that is self contained on the slide. When I click the next button on this slide, I can't advance to the next slide (final exam) right away. It lags for a few minutes before advancing. Is this because of the length of the video. Is there a way around it? I have received a number of complaints that the course is broken when, in fact, it's just lagging. Any help is appreciated. Thanks!

Hello Yardley and welcome to E-Learning Heroes :)

Thanks for reaching out and sharing what you are running into with your course.

It sounds like the second slide has not had time to fully load and Jean-Christophe has a great solution to reduce the size of your course.

Here is some information on how Storyline pre-loads the content for smooth playback.
