I've been trying for a while now to find the best way to
incorporate Captivate videos into my (html) help projects and
haven't found a solution yet. The video files either display much
too large or appear very fuzzy or out-of-focus when we try to
resize them for better display. The file sizes have also been an
issue, since these tend to be quite large. I'm currently running
RoboHelp 7 HTML. Any help or insight on this would be greatly
When Captivate creates output in SWF format you usually end
up with a few different files.
* .HTM file to present the whole thing
* .SWF containing the main part of the movie
* .SWF containing the skin and playback controls
I'm hopeful that strides have been made by Adobe so just
pointing at the .HTM file is now sufficient. So assuming it all
comes in fine, you could then just open the .HTM page Captivate
creates and ensure it opens in a new window so as to maximize
available playback space.
Other than that, always create your Captivate projects as
small as you physically can.
