workig with large videos files

Sep 21, 2016


I am working on a e-learning project having six large videos. I upload the videos in a folder in LMS and use the hyperlink option to use the links in my Articulate Storyline course.

After publishing the course on LMS I am facing the following challenges.

1. Video is opening in WMP and started buffering.

2. Overall compromised quality of the video.

I don't know how to overcome this challenge. What I want that the video should open in the same window not in WMP and should not buffer.

If I am uploading videos directly to AS file, file is getting hanged and corrupted ?

Any suggestions/inputs are welcomed.

Hi Kashif!

This tutorial explains your options for adding video into your course.

I would be sure that the videos are published to a website where you can link to it via embed code as the tutorial explains. 

Perhaps others in the community will be able to chime in and assist in how they've handled large video files in their projects.

Thank You Leslie !! 

My issue is bit technical. My video files are posted on LMS and I am using the hyperlink option to add these files to my AS2 course.

Now the challenge is that when I test the course in LMS, video is opening in a new window and started buffering, buffering is impacting the quality of the video.

Do we have any option of inserting large video files without any hassle in AS2, as when I am directly inserting the video files, story file is becoming unresponsive and hanged.
