Using AMS with Captivate

Hi I'm  a complete novice with the Adobe Media Server. I'm currently signed up to it for the 30 day trial, but I require it for a specific purpose, and if I'm not able to do achieve what I want I'll have to cancel my subscription.

I work a lot with Captivate, the eLearning authoring tool. Most of the projects that I design are very video heavy. I find if I upload the videos straight onto Captivate, it causes a lot of problems, particularly with tablets, as the output file from Captivate is much too big.

So what I started doing was uploading the videos to Vimeo and simply embedding the Vimeo video into the Captivate project. This works perfectly. One project I worked on was originally 180MB and after doing this I reduced it to 3MB in size!!

The only problem is that for several reasons (privacy etc.), I don't like having to upload everything to Vimeo.

My questions is whether I can replicate exactly what I'm doing with Vimeo except using Adobe Media Server?

I also want to know how easy/difficult this is. I was working with it for the last two days and I was getting no where. I followed all the tutorials etc. but I think it's a small bit outside my comfort zone. I'm trying to get my head around "instances" and things like that but all that stuff is new to me.

Any advice or help is welcome. Thanks

Well, if you are looking to stream video with AMS, then it's not too difficult. Streaming is generally pretty good out of the box. I did a pile of tutorials in the past on AMS here: Adobe Media Server | FMSGuru.com and I think Adobe has some too. I don't know if you can embed into captivate though as Vimeo has a player and embed code to go with it. What you'd need to do is create a player with maybe video.js and then set the source to your AMS server with the app/instance and video name and then embed that video.js player in your captivate presentation. Just an idea.
