Videos - stream on playback or download first?

Jan 24, 2017

Quick question...

Do videos added to slides stream when played back in a course, or download before the video begins?

And, is that determined by how it's published in SL2 or by the LMS where the course is hosted?

Thanks for the help!

Hi there George!

Articulate Storyline progressively streams videos (except SWF files) in published content, no matter if it's published for LMS or Web. This means learners won't have to wait for each video to fully download before it begins to play. You can read more details about that in this article.  Also, you can read about how content is preloaded here.
