Once you've added a video to Mindstamp, either by uploading a direct file or linking to a third party platform like Vimeo, Wistia or Kaltura, you can begin to add Interactions including buttons, questions, hotspots and more.
To add a hotspot, simply click the 'Add Hotspot’ control underneath the video which looks like a sun.
The hotspot will appear on your video and you can move and resize it as you wish.
On the control panel, you can configure:
Show Time: Determines when the hotspot begins to display on your video.
Hide Time: Determines when the hotspot disappears.
Pause for Hotspot: Instead of displaying for a certain time, this selection will pause the video for a given period and only display the hotspot (or other interactions) at that time.
Show Hotspot Indicator: Controls if the hotspot pulsing circle displays or not. If not the clickable area will become ‘active’ on mouseover for desktop viewers and only active on click for mobile viewers.
Hotspot Caption: If you want to label the hotspot on screen for more info.
Hotspot Click Action: What happens when a viewer clicks the hotspot. This can open a website link, display a message, open an image, change the time in the video and more.
Action Value: Depending on the click action, you populate the appropriate content. So if the button is opening a link, you provide the website URL in this field.
