I'm using the Media panel to add a video via URL. It gives the option of setting up "navigation points" which can then be the basis of a button action. But if I try to create a button to play from a navigation point I get an error with exporting with In5:

I responded via email, but the answer might help others, so I'm adding it here. The video placed from a URL produces an error in InDesign that says, "Download failed because the URL could not be verified." I pasted the URL in a browser window and got a message that "This site can't be reached." It's likely that is the source of the exporting error.

It turns out that not being able to add a button with an Action set to Video and the Option set to Play from Navigation Point is an InDesign bug. Justin posted it to the InDesign Uservoice site (https://indesign.uservoice.com/forums/601180-adobe-indesign-bugs/suggestions/41923588-navigation-points-not-available-to-scripting-in-in_). The InDesign team will need to make navigation points scriptable for this to work.
