Tokyo - Components | Interactive video

"Interactive video" is a component that allows adding interactive elements inside a video (texts, links, and activities).
This component is added within the screens by default (see here), but it can also be added inside other components (for example, inside a Pop-up, a Row, etc.).
You will find this component in the group of "Multimedia" components.


Setup process

1.  Access the "Properties" tab, go to "Resource (.mp4)" property, and select the mp4 file that you want to play and the video cover.

2. Play the video and stop it to choose the video point where you want to add an element.

3.  Access the "Add" tab and click on elements that you want to add inside a video (texts, links or activities consisting of Multiple choice or Simple answer).

4. After adding a component, access to its properties and configure them. Each component has specific properties. Read the list of properties at the bottom of this article.

5. If you need to add more components to a video point, you just need to continue playing it and stop it at the appropriate moment.
