You can use this feature to embed content from the web into your module.
When you embed a web object, you are dynamically including content from a website at run time, without having to “physically” embed that content in your project. The content could virtually be anything - a whole web page, a widget, a video, a game, or just plain text.
Not all websites may work, because some of them may not support rendering their content on an
iframe. Only websites that support content to be loaded in external iframes can be embedded.
To remove a web object from your project, select the web object inserted on the slide and press Delete on your keyboard.
You can embed video content from YouTube into your project.
While you can use the Web Object feature to embed online videos (subject to websites supporting such embeds), the YouTube feature goes a bit further allowing you to control/customize the play
To embed only a section:
Only that section of the video is embedded into your project.
- Play the video within the Insert YouTube dialog box.
- Click Start Time at the point where you want the video to start.
- Click Stop Time at the point where you want the video to stop.
- Click Reset Time if you want to reset the start and stop times.
You can also customize the appearance of the video using the Theme and Color options in the Insert YouTube Video dialog box.
Theme: Choose whether you want a light or dark frame color.
Color: Choose whether you want red or white color to be used in the player's video progress bar to highlight the amount of the video that the viewer has already seen
Hide Annotations: Check this if you do not want to display the annotations in the video.
Hide Controls: Check this if you do not want to display the video player controls.
These theme options are the standard customization options provided by YouTube. These cannot be previewed through the Preview window, you can view the customization only in the published presentation.
If you are embedding web objects or YouTube videos in your project, be aware that the YouTube and web object content do not play in the following publish scenarios:
- YouTube videos and Web objects do not work if you are publishing locally. Published output needs to be hosted on a server in order to run them.
- Web objects and YouTube videos do not play if the output is published as PDF.
