I've just created an interactive Indesign Presentation and exported it as an SWF file.
This file contains several videos and they are all workin as they should on my pc.
But as I am copying my presentation onto an external device, the videos won't play and just remain white.
I know that this happens due to the path of the video, but even if they are in the same folder as the swf on the external device, it won't work.
So my question is, if there is a way to define a video path, so that the swf knows that all videos are in the "video" folder, on my external device, next to the swf for axample.
I would be really thankful for your help
Have a nice day.

Assuming you have the relative paths right there still maybe a security problem loading local assets. You could try playing the HTML file that InDesign generates via Chrome. Videos are usually added to an asset folder, so putting the video in the same folder with the SWF might be a problem. The directory for a doc named vidtest would look like this, where the video clip goes in vidtest_Resources:
