Displaying Captivate files for mobile users in a meeting

I have been experimenting with using Captivate files in a meeting. I have uploaded a test project exported as SWF and HTML5 (as shown in one of the Adobe tutorials). However when you try to share this the HTML Captivate file is not displayed.

I have tried linking to the file's URL (which works if you access this in Safari on the iPad once logged in to Connect) in a Web Links pod but this is listed as "Unsupported Content".

Does anyone have a method for sharing Captivate content in meetings that can be enjoyed by both desktop and mobile participants? It is great having mobile access but if mobile users cannot access content that desktop ones can they will grumble!

TIA

The meeting room runs in Flash, and doesn't support HTML content. As such, it will only call the SWF version while in a meeting room. Since SWF content is considered a run-time code change to Apple and Android, it is not allowed in the mobile app.

Thanks for the reply. So how do the native apps work?

Perhaps the workaround will be to provide a link to the HTML5 content on a server but have not tried that yet.

What native apps are you referring to?

Captivate can output to HTML5 (as you know) and MP4 which will play natively on iOS devices. There isn't an app for Captivate content though.

Your work around could work, but they will likely leave the live meeting when linking out to an external content object.

I mean the Connect iOS app. I hoped that Connect would deliver the SWF version of the Captivate output for desktops and the HTML for mobile devices that do not support Flash.

I am enjoying using Connect
