How to show video progress

I have a video in my captivate project and I want to learner to be able to see how much time is remaining in the video when they are taking the course. I put the video in as an event video and it has a progress bar at the bottom but does not tell the actual time remaining. Is this possible to give an actual amount if time left? If so, how do you do this?

Event video plays completely independent from Captivate's timeline. That means there is no way to use Captivate functionality to add features to the individual control panel. For slide video more is possible.

Sorry for my late response, but notifications have disappeared and I am relying on them.

Thanks Lilybri so if I do it as a slide video instead is there a way to make it so the learner could see the time remaining in a video. I tried it both ways and could not figure it out. Thanks for any help you can provide.

A simple solution would be to use the Timer interaction, set its maximum time to the duration of the video. Captivate has some system variables which can be used. Maybe have a look at http://blog.lilybiri.com/display-time-cp2019
