I have a client that wants to have a video be used as an instructional video. The video will be visible on the internet - on the company website. The client wants someone to view the entire video then have the ability to fill out a form and not go to the form before reaching the end of the video. The form will be for the user to request a certificate. I know that with YouTube videos, you can add interactive elements / links within the video, like at the end. We would like to do this as well but not use a YouTube video. The client doesn't want the YouTube logo at all (we can make it invisible, but it still shows up on rollover).
So is there a way to add an interactive element (button or text link) at the end of a video that can be embedded in a web page that isn't shown until the end of the video?
We are showing videos using the JWPlayer (WordPress site).
I could have done this in a Flash (SWF) file that has a video but we want to let tablets and mobiles see the video.
An alternate direction is to use a JQuery function that sets a button as disabled until a certain amount of time expires.
I also thought about putting a video within a PDF.
I'd love to hear about any thoughts or possible directions you would suggest.
After Effects does not create interactive video. You can use After Effects to create the video, but the interactive parts need to be done in something like Flash Professional.
I'm moving this to the Flash forum so the folks there can advise on how to create interactive content that will play on various devices.
If you want your video to play on anywhere then you don't want Flash. You should be able to use a simple html5 page to play your video and then redirect the user to a new page, or display a new div to get to the form. Here's a good discussion of doing that sort of thing: http://help.videojs.com/discussions/questions/509-videojs-and-passing-an-event-at-the-end- of-the-video You can also look at the regular html video dom reference: http://www.w3schools.com/tags/av_prop_ended.asp
