Volume Widget does not work
I have a dilemma, but first some background info about my project:
1- I am not able to stream video or use youtube as a host, so I must insert my video into the project.
2- I have created custom controls for my project audio and video objects (I am not using a captivate player skin).
Here-in lies my problem, I need both closed captions and volume control for my video. If I insert an event video, the video has its own playbar which controls the volume, play, pause, etc. Not so great because I want to use my custom controls and I do not want to confuse my learner with multiple ways to control video and audio dependent on the page they are. I want to use my custom controls and they will not work with an event video.
Also, I am not able to use captivate to attach closed captions when inserting an event video unless I parce out the audio from the video. I can insert an audio-less video while attaching a separate audio file, which then enables me to attach captions to the audio object and still be able to use my custom controls for audio volume control. But it still does not solve my problem because as previously mentioned, my custom controls will not control the event video play, pause, etc functions and if I were to hit pause, everything but the video pauses.
Ok…so then I go the synchronized video route. I can get captions, my custom controls work for replay, play, and pause, but the volume widget does not control the video volume.
