Hotspots FAQ

How many Hotspot sections can I use at once?

You can use all 9 sections at once, but be careful! Things can get pretty crowded on small screens such as mobile devices. It's up to you to make sure your video looks good on all screen sizes.

How long does a Hotspot show for?

That's up to you. You can set a start and end time to control when it shows. You can also make the video pause for your Hotspot, which will pause the video for 5 seconds to give the viewer a chance to act.

Is a Button required to make a section clickable?

Nope! You can add an action without any text and it will still work. We'll show a small pulsing indicator to help viewers understand that it's clickable.

What actions can a Hotspot section take when clicked?

You can use all standard Mindstamp Actions in hotspots: Open URL Link, Start Phone Call, Change Video time, etc...
