Learn how to prototype interactive experiences with videos in XD.

Choose a preset or custom playback option for your video, and define how other interactions work with video.

Before you proceed

Be familiar with the following:

Set a playback option

After importing your video into XD, control when it will play:

Set a playback option for your video
Set a playback option for your video

  1. In Design mode, select the video on canvas.
  2. In the Video section of the Property Inspector, choose one of the preset video playback options:
    • Play on tap (default)
    • Play automatically
    • No playback

Playback options and associated interactions

When you set a playback option for your video in Design mode, associated interactions are automatically set in Prototype mode.

Play on tap

When Play on tap is chosen, Tap trigger is auto-set with the default action as Toggle Play/Pause.

Play on tap

Play automatically

When Play automatically is chosen, Time trigger is auto-set with a delay of 0 seconds.

Play automatically

No playback

When No playback is chosen, all interactions are disabled in Prototype mode.

Customize video playback

Choose Edit playback to customize playback
Choose Edit playback to customize playback

To customize video playback, in the Video section of the Property Inspector, select Edit playback.

When you select Edit playback, you automatically switch to Prototype mode.

In Prototype mode, opt for any of these customizations:

  • Choose one of the following triggers: Time (set Delay to more than 0 seconds), Keys & Gamepad, Voice.
  • Change the video playback action of Tap trigger from Toggle Play/Pause to Play or Pause.

 Video can't be played back with Drag trigger.

Choose Time trigger with Delay set to more than 0 seconds
Customize playback by choosing Time trigger with Delay set to more than 0 seconds

Customize playback by choosing Tap trigger with Play or Pause as the action
Customize playback by choosing Tap trigger with Play or Pause as the action

In both the above scenarios, the playback option is set to Custom playback in Design mode.

 XD only supports a single Time trigger. So, setting a video to play automatically could cancel an artboard or Lottie animation Time trigger. XD prioritizes the Time trigger with the least delay, and cancels all other Time interactions.

Video playback and other interactions

Once you set a playback option for your videos, you can create more engaging prototypes with them. Explore these additional prototyping capabilities:

  • Use the End of Playback trigger. 
  • Play a video and multiple Lotties at the same time.
