First thing you need to wrap your head around is that they are not necessarily videos, unless you specifically make them videos. I also use AE and PP so its easy to miss that if you are coming from that background.
Those are your two options, video with no interactivity, reporting, ect. or a full HTML5/SWF project with interactivity. Both options you have mentioned utilize one or the other of these variations.
Thank you Steve!
an answer that i can build on.
Can you tell me if the endresult is more stable when i embed the video content dirctly into the project (from my hdd) vs embedding YouTube video's?
That would depend on the platform you want to ultimately place your project on, and for both its really about bandwidth. If you are creating a Captivate project, embedding the videos in the project and placing it on your Wordpress website, how big/fast is your bandwitdth,(shared hosting, dedicated server etc), how big are the videos etc if you are using progressive download because they won't play until fully loaded.
If you are using say, Vimeo and just linking them with an iFrame in the project it depends again on bandwidth.. the best way is just to test both ways to see what works best for you.
An additional question:
What type of captivate project do I need? A responsive project might not be needed because the template for my website wil be responsive? where can i find the different functionalities within the project types?
Hope someone can help.
