Using web objects to show Vimeo videos in Storyline 360 reduces the SCORM package size and can improve course load times. However, this typically means that it is not possible for the course to detect if a user has played a video or automatically turn on subtitles for a video. The solution that I will discuss was to use HTML, CSS, and JavaScript to code a custom web object that could be used to bridge the communication gap between Storyline 360 and the Vimeo. In this presentation I will show how I created a plug and play web object that can be used to load any Vimeo video using a variable in Storyline, update a variable in Storyline when the Vimeo play button is clicked, and automatically turn on language specific subtitles based on the value of Storyline variable.
