Overlay feature - I don't want it to pause the video

I love the overlay feature except for one thing...the default behavior is to pause the video and blur the background. What I would like is for it to keep playing the video.

Is there a way of doing that?

Maybe you are using overlay slides for a totally different purpose than i do. Why would you want the video to continue playing in the background while the learner has focus on a Overlay Content or Quiz slide?

Thank you Lily, I found another way to do what I want. You are right about the right way to use an overlay.

Rookie mistake - I did what I wanted to do with text captions. I was having an issue with placing them where I wanted. Unlocking them from the fluid box solved my problem.

Thank you for the quick response. I am now going to create some overlay slides for their correct purpose:)

Hmmm.... are you using an interactive video in a Fluid Boxes project? Not a good idea at all. Only slide video can be iused for ineractive video, and slide video can never be inserted in a fluid box. Maybe I wrote this in the blogs, don't remember. I know that the team always talks about both blank and responsive rpojects for both Interactive video and VR slides, but personally I would never use those two fatures in a fluid boxes project myself. Look at the sample file.... it is not responsive.

Hello! You say that you found out how to complete this - how did you do it without an overlay? I am looking to have the same action of a video playing in the background but an 'overlay' of text to pop up to show over. I want the video to look as though it does with a normal overlay slide, with lower opacity. Did you just add a shape with text over the video? How did you make the video lower opacity if it's a slide video. Thanks!!

Indeed, you need to put static objects on top of the video, and try to time them correctly.
