    Linking to a URL

      I want to display a YouTube video on a slide, but I cannot figure out how to enter the URL and the embed command in order to do this. Also, how do I link to a Web site or URL other than after someone makes a last attempt to click the right click box?

          Hi MMDeaton

          Are you using Captivate 2?

          I don't believe you will be able to do this if the YouTube video isn't in .FLV format. The only video format that I've seen "embedded" inside Captivate in the manner you are describing is the .FLV format. So I suppose you would first need to convert the YouTube video to .FLV.

          Assuming it already exists on YouTube in .FLV format and you are using Captivate 2, the process should be pretty straightforward. You click Insert > Flash Video... and point at the URL for the video.

          You link to Web Sites and URLs using either Button or Click Box objects. I'm not sure what you meant to imply with your statement, as normally you would either position the invisible Click Box object over a logical area to be clicked or the Button does indeed look like a button they click. Your statement sounds as if users are fumbling around without the faintest clue as to what to click. If that's the case, they need more visual cues.

          Sincerely... Rick
