1) In the Design Editor, I added a .WMV titled "MPI Scoring" to a topic using Insert > Multimedia/Demo...
2) I tagged the movie as ONLINE ONLY conditional text.
I've attached the HTML block that was added. This is when I realized that I wanted to see the controls, so a user could restart the movie if they wanted to.
3) In HTML Editor, I changed the value of "ShowControls" to "1."
4) I clicked back over to Design Editor, then back to HTML Editor, and the value has reverted to "0."
Even when displaying that value, sometimes the generated content (WebHelp) will still display the controls, but it seems almost RANDOM as to when it will work and when it won't.
Thanks for your help.
Okay, I'm thinking we need to fudge things to coax RoboHelp into accepting them.
Delete the video from the page and try this.
Click to place the cursor where you want the video to appear and click Insert > HTML > Advanced > Script.
When you do this, you should see a window appear to insert some script. Copy the attached code and paste it into the window. Then click OK.
On my PC it makes the video play with the controls. Hopefully it will work for you as well.
The controls show up now but, unfortunately, the video doesn't. Just a black screen.
Will it make a difference if I associate a different HTML editor? I'll try...
Looks like adding the movies to my Baggage files did the trick.
(Although I'm still holding my breath since the ShowControl value has again reverted to "0" in the HTML Editor...even though it remains "1" in the generated WebHelp!)
