Q. I have embedded an IgNation video in Blackboard. It starts to play, then stops right away and I see the Pause button instead of the Play button. How can I play this video?
A. Videos in Blackboard may take a very long time to download, during which time you will see the Pause button. To speed up viewing of videos, instead of embedding, add a link to the video:
- Go to the content area when you want to post the video.
- Click the Build Content tab, then Create > URL.
- Enter the name of the video and the URL.
- Select Yes for Open in New Window.
- Click Submit.
