The Youtube Widget allows you to embed, in your Captivate presentation, a video hosted on Youtube.
Download the Youtube Widget and unzip it to a location of your liking. When inserting the widget, just browse to your selected location. If you want the widget to appear in the Widget Panel, copy the folder “YoutubeWidget.wdgt” to the Captivate installation folder under the Gallery\Widgets sub-folder. Restart Captivate.
How to use it
Insert the widget in your Captivate presentation and assign it a Youtube Video ID in the Properties Dialog. By default, the widget will take the normal youtube video size of 480 x 385 pixels. If you wish to have a different size, just resize the widget on the stage.
The Youtube widget can play one and only one video per presentation. Furthermore, it will not pause or resume the video when the presentation changes slide. Finally, you can only preview the video in a web browser. If you preview it within Captivate, the video will not show up.
