Hi, Pixelman!

If you're looking for an additional layer of copy protection on your videos, I'd recommend uploading them to YouTube, Vimeo, or any other supported content provider, then embedding the videos into Rise from there.

Here's a great example of a course with lots of embedded video, all of which is copy protected by YouTube.

Good luck with your project!

Thank you Justin
But my question is, Youtube or Vimeo are public and any one has access to
them. I bought articulate because of the password i can setup for
individual course. Hope you fix this big issue. I already checked lynda.com
and Udemy.com and none of their video is download-able.

Hello again, Pixelman.

Vimeo does a really nice job of separating who can see your video from privacy options for video embedding, and you can read all about that here.

We don't have specific plans for additional copy protection in Rise right now, but we'd love it if you'd click here and tell us more about your need for this feature!

Hi Cynthia! It sounds like you're working with Storyline, correct? I wanted to double check since this is a Rise thread.

The ability to download videos actually came with a change in Chrome, not Storyline. Google Chrome versions 55 and later let you download videos from published courses when these conditions are true:

  • You enabled Show Video Controls. 
  • You're viewing HTML5 output.

You'll see a download arrow on the right end of the video control bar in Google Chrome.

If you don't want learners to download videos from your courses, you'll need to disable the video controls in Storyline before publishing. If you've enabled the seekbar for your course, learners will still be able to pause, fast forward, and rewind videos.

hi. My videos - on RISE - are automatically downloading when you go to the training page - and they don't play inside the RISE course page. :( It works fine on Firefox.

I used an iframe code with videos coming from amazon s3

Example of code:

<iframe width="768" height="441" align="centre" src="https://s3-us-west-2.amazonaws.com/adg-videos-training-series-smaller-res/1-intro-4-pillars.mp4" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

Not sure why it's doing this. Is there a simple fix - since with iframe, there are no options to change the video controls. thanks.
