Enhance your Engage 360 interactions with videos from any of three sources:

Adding a Video from a File

Important: Videos will be automatically synchronized with the interaction and controlled by the seekbar (although you can choose to provide a separate playbar for videos). If you want to insert an interactive SWF file that plays independently of the interaction and isn’t controlled by the seekbar, insert it as a Flash movie instead.

Here’s how to insert a video from a file:

  1. Select the step where you want to add a video.
  2. Click the Video icon in the media panel and select Video from File.
  3. Browse to the video you want to use and click Open.

These file formats are natively supported in Engage:

  • FLV
  • MP4
  • SWF

These file formats will be converted to MP4 in Engage:

  • 3G2
  • 3GP
  • ASF
  • AVI
  • DV
  • M1V
  • M2V
  • M4V
  • MOV
  • MPE

After adding a video, you can preview it using the play/pause and stop buttons below the video thumbnail in the media panel. To adjust the video properties, see this user guide. To edit the video, see this user guide.

Adding a Video from a Website

Engage makes it easy to embed videos that are hosted on popular websites such as YouTube and Vimeo.

Note: Website videos play independently of the slide and aren’t controlled by the seekbar.

  3. Copy the video embed code from the hosting website, and paste it into the Insert Video from Website box.
