Hello, does anybody know how to export a SCORM video with multiple quality videos available?

 Something like the user can select the quality while watching the video. Whenever I export I get only 1 quality available but I am pretty sure SCORM package allows that.

Hello,

Right now we only produce 1 video to include in the SCORM package.

Hopefully Ben will correct me if I'm wrong here.

I seem to recall that SCORM relies on a "package" and that package exists as a zip file? And inside the zip is something called the SCORM manifest? (Which is just a list of the content in the package?).

I'm not sure how such a thing would actually work in practice, but I believe I've seen where other folks modify that zip file by adding additional content to it, then also maybe modifying the manifest?

Assuming my memory is intact, then it seems that one could create different "quality" clips and add them to the zip? But the real troublesome part I would think would be how to manage offering a selection of different quality videos to the end user.

Cheers... Rick :)

Rick,

You can manually add files to the SCORM package.  However the Smart Player is setup only to use 1 source media.

Thanks Ben. Appreciate the info.

Thinking outside the box a bit, I was wondering if perhaps that process could be used along with maybe adding a selection at the beginning part of the video. Have hotspots that would allow the end viewer to "choose" the quality before commencing with watching the video.

Then each hotspot would open (and replace) the current video with the one of the desired quality.

LOL, I guess I could be nicknamed "workaround wally" as I'm often thinking of convoluted ways to achieve goals. ;)

Cheers... Rick :)
