Storyline: Videos Progressively Download for Immediate Playback

Article Last Updated

This article applies to:

Storyline progressively downloads videos (except SWF movies) in published courses. This means learners won't have to wait for each video to fully download before it begins to play.

Here's how Storyline handles different video formats:

  • MP4 and FLV videos are natively supported in Storyline and will progressively download by default.
  • SWF movies are natively supported in Storyline. However, they won't progressively download.
  • Storyline converts all other video file formats to MP4 and progressively downloads them in published courses.

In some cases, you may have an MP4 file that isn't properly formatted. As a result, learners may experience a long delay while the entire video downloads. If you have an MP4 file that takes a long time to play, you may be able to correct it with the method described here.
