There are four modules available that allow you to include video in your issue:
- Play video file on page
- Play video file in pop-up
- Play YouTube video in pop-up
- Play Vimeo video in pop-up
Play video on page and Play video file in pop-up require the video to be uploaded as a resource. This can be done in the Resources Manager or within the module.
- To begin select Manage for your issue, followed by Interactivity.
- Select Media from the Interactivity Module palette.
- Select the video module of your choice.
- Click and drag the area into the position that you would like to make interactive.
Instructions for each video module can be found below.
Play video file on page
The clickable area is where your video will play on the page and the size will be determined by the dimensions of the video file.
Select the video file from the Select Video Resource drop-down list. (Click the refresh icon to refresh the list if needed).
Select the Settings palette for the following option:
- Auto Play - tick this option to automatically play the video, otherwise, the reader is required to press play.
Play video file in pop-up
Allows you to play a video in a pop-up box; the reader can also choose to watch the video in full screen.
Select the video file from Select Video Resource drop-down list. (Click the refresh icon to refresh the list if needed).
Select the Subtitle tab if you would like to add subtitles to help readers who cannot hear the video or require foreign language subtitles. Subtitles are added one line at a time in the subtitles fields and a timecode is specified for when they should appear (in seconds).
The number specified for subtitles is a timecode in seconds. This relates to the duration of the video, not the gap between the subtitles or the time a subtitle will be displayed for.
Don't forget to tick Show subtitles in the Settings palette for the module if you are using subtitles.
This will ensure that that subtitles you have added will display when your video plays.
Play YouTube/Vimeo video in pop-up
If you are unable to upload the video files as a resource but the video is available on YouTube or Vimeo, PageTiger can embed these videos in a pop-up using just the URL.
Simply paste the URL for the video into the YouTube/Vimeo video link field provided.
PageTiger cannot embed a video from YouTube or Vimeo on a page or use the embed code provided by these services.
