Hi - I have 60+ mp4's that I need to create individual SCORM files for. I can add the videos to Captivate, and sometimes they play when I preview them in HTML5, and sometimes they do not. I cannot seem to find a pattern of why they will or will not play. I need to create 60 SCORM files each containing one video. I am unable to break up the video in anyway, is this possible for me to do? Can someone PLEASE help me with this. I have been trying to get this to work for too long! Thank you!!
May I ask a couple of questions?
Thank you so much for the response. Here are the answers to your questions:
Use the Adobe Media Encoder also to try to decrease the file size by changing settings for resolution and quality (video and audio). Without a streaming service the learners are in for long waiting times.
At between 1-5 gigabytes in size your video files are certainly way too large. Certainly not practical for delivery of a SCORM e-learning course.
Usng Adobe Media Encoder might potentially reduce the file size somewhat (especially if you can also reduce the physical height and width of the videos) but it is not going to be the answer.
I know you said you are unable to break them up into smaller files. But without having the option of using streaming, breaking these huge files into smaller ones is going to be the ONLY way you can improve performance and avoid placing an intolerable load on your LMS.
The problem here is not Captivate. It's the sheer size of your videos.
