i am tyring to make a vido pop up inside a window. I tried using a thumbnail option as suggested in the following post


 I don't want to link to an external video post and I have tried including them in the resources in a folder called video.

Is there another way to do this?

Thank you,

There are now some helpful videos and an easy wizard that helps you do this.

Pop-up Build Wizard: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U6FoYdzJwZ0

Video course on creating a pop-up video:

Yes, create your own popup with a MultiState Object (MSO).

Create a "blank" state with an empty rectangle as the default state.

Create a button with a Go to State action and a video play action.

Inside the MSO's video state, create a close button that stops the video and returns the MSO to the "empty" state.

The popup MSO can cover the entire screen, in which case it will block clicks behind the popup content (like you might expect).
