I am trying to loop a video, but when I publish it is not looping.  I am on captivate 11.5.5.676.   I followed the directions I found, the time is the time for the video, 4.2 sec.

I set it up as an event video.  It is my personal video.  I shot it on my iphone, converted it to a MP4 and added it to a slide.  The video plays great, it just will not loop for the length of the slide.  I looked through the discussions, but they are either for older versions or showed me these instructions.  What am I doing wrong?

It will loop if you display the video for the length of the slide. But it will stop when it reaches the end of the slide.   The only way I know to get one to loop indepent of the timeline is to create an html page with the video, zip it up and insert as an html5 animation.   Here is the html code I use for a video that loops.   <!doctype html><html><head><meta charset="utf-8"><title></title><style>html, body {padding: 0px; margin: 0px;}</style><script> function getVideo(){ var vid = document.get...

Here is the html code I use for a video that loops.

 

<!doctype html>
<html>
<head>
<meta charset="utf-8">
<title></title>
<style>
html, body {
padding: 0px;
margin: 0px;
}
</style>
<script>

function getVideo()
{
var vid = document.getElementById( 'myVideo' );
vid.play();
}

</script>
</head>

<body onload="getVideo();">
<video id="myVideo" src="loop.mp4" loop preload="none" width="1024" height="768"></video>
</body>

</html>

Thanks that worked.   The instructions I found on the internet said to make sure to keep it to the length of the video not the slide, so I did not try it.  Makes sense.  Thanks!
