HI Daphnee,

I think you are right it does as I can't choose my YouTube embedded video in the media completes trigger either.  But the following might work for you as well.

In your embed code from youtube add autoplay=1 onto the end of the URL.

For example, if my original embed where I unchecked the box for player controls was:

<iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/GXqfH4vmxyE?controls=0" frameborder="0" allow="accelerometer; autoplay; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture" allowfullscreen></iframe>

I would change it to:

<iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/GXqfH4vmxyE?controls=0&autoplay=1" frameborder="0" allow="accelerometer; autoplay; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture" allowfullscreen></iframe>

So you video will play when the slide loads.

You can extend the timeline of the to just longer than the length of the video. 

Add a trigger to change the state of the next button on timelime starts.

Add a trigger to change the state of the next button to normal on timeline ends.

You could also jump to the next slide when the timeline ends.

Hi Jem,

The embed couldn't wouldn't allow me to set it to autoplay. So I can't get that function to work even though I've now created a trigger to play media when timeline starts. 

The good news is, the triggers you gave me do prevent the student from moving ahead and by passing the videos. Yay for this victory!

Hi Daphnee,

A lot of the modern browsers have adjusted how media will autoplay, so I'd start by taking a look at this article on Chrome's changes. Safari has implemented similar, and Firefox will look at changes by years end. Using the latest update of Storyline should help with the outlined issue!
