How to use HTML in your interactive videos
Mindstamp specializes in empowering our users to create engaging, interactive, and creative videos that give your audience an unforgettable experience. One of the many tools that we offer to our users is the ability to edit their interactions using HTML. Whether you are creating a text interaction, button, or question, you can use HTML to apply formatting, add icons, add text effects, embed 3rd party content and much more.
By using HTML formatting, you can easily add structure and styling to your interactions, making it easier for your viewers to understand and navigate. For example, you can use HTML tags to create headings, paragraphs, and bullet points. You can also adjust the color and style to match your brand's identity. Or, use some of our built in text effects to give your interactions some pizazz. For example, you can use HTML tags to create bold or italicized text, or to add special effects like shadows or highlights. You can also use CSS to add more advanced text effects, such as animation or hover effects.
Adding icons to your interactive videos is a great way to visually communicate with your viewers. Icons can be used to highlight specific points in your video or provide visual cues on what some of your interactions might achieve. By partnering with Font Awesome, you can easily browse and add icons to your videos and customize their appearance to match your brand's design aesthetic.
Embedding 3rd Party Content
Another powerful use of HTML in interactive videos is the ability to embed 3rd party content. For example, you can use HTML to embed social media feeds, e-commerce widgets, or even other videos within your interactive video. This not only enhances the user experience, but can also help to drive conversions and engagement.
