Interactive Video - Navigation Hotspot Pause

Hi, I'm a newbie evaluating a few e-learning systems. Been impressed with what I've seen here but have a quick question which is key to our decision...

I've uploaded a video, and added a navigation hotspot to appear from 0:00 to 0:05 and ticked 'Pause video'. I presumed that after the first 5 seconds the video would pause until the hotspot was clicked. I'm not getting this behaviour - am I doing something wrong or misinterpreting the expected behaviour?

Hi Stephan,

You did not misinterpret the expected behaviour and it should pause the video. Although if you want the video to pause at the 5 sec mark, your hotspot should setting should start at 0:05. If it is not working at all please provide the information below:

  1. Steps to recreate the bug
  2. Platform you're using: Drupal, Wordpress, Moodle (version number would be helpful as well)
  3. Mobile or Desktop
  4. Browser: Chrome, Firefox, Safari etc
  5. H5P plugin version
  6. H5P content type version

The more information you provide, the quicker the community will be able to fix it and the quicker you'll have a working solution!


it is possible to have such a situation: all the hotspots available for example at the second 26 and these represent the chapters of a book. If chapter 3 runs from minute 5 to minute 7:15, I would like the video to stop at 7:15. It can be done?

Hi Roberto,

Yes this can be done. You can follow the steps below:

  1. Create multiple Navigation Hotspots on the "Chapters" time and in your scenario at 26 secs.
  2. Create an activity at the end of the chapter and then place something in the adaptivity settings. What you place there depends on what you want your students to do. For example you send them back to the start of the chapter if they answered incorrectly and continue to the next chapter if they answered correctly.

I created a simple content to demostrate this. To make it not too compIicated I used Nav hotspots at the end of my "chapters" with 2 choices to either continue to the next chapter or go back to the table of contents. Feel free to download it and check my settings.

Important note, make sure that you set all your activities to pause the video (option is at the top).
