Best practices for using YouTube videos
In this article
Supported YouTube settings
The YouTube video must meet the following requirement to be used in PlayPosit.
- Public or Unlisted
- No age restrictions
- Viewable on learners' internet environment
Don’t place interactions at the very beginning or the very end of the video
Due to loading and initializing, the timing pass back from the YouTube video might be slightly inaccurate. The difference will not affect the interactions in the Bulb but may cause the interactions placed at the beginning or end of the video segment not to display correctly. To prevent this issue, please leave around 0.5 seconds at the beginning and the end of each YouTube video segment in the bulb when inserting interactions.
Manually fetch the auto-generated caption
PlayPosit will automatically fetch the available captions from the YouTube video when building the bulb. However, instructors must manually fetch the caption to the bulb if the video only has an auto-generated caption. Please follow the steps in this article to fetch the caption manually.
