Switch Video with Start Time
Many Mindstamp users have multiple interactive videos that they integrate together into a choose-your-own-adventure style experience for their viewers. This might include a series of product videos where a viewer is navigating to learn more about a specific feature or capability, a collection of related training videos that support self navigation and discovery, or a collection of customer or employee onboarding videos with topics that vary in applicability based on the audience.
Mindstamp has always made it simple to allow a viewer to navigate to another interactive video with the click of a button, hotspot, image or custom-text. Historically, that other video would begin from the beginning, but with a recent release you can now designate the exact start time in the video your viewer is switching in order to take them directly to the content that’s most relevant. Simply choose Switch Video as the action, the Mindstamp video you want to switch to, and the time in the new video to start.
If you want to jump the viewer back into the main flow of your original video automatically, just use an ‘Add Navigation’ interaction, choose Switch Video and jump them back to the point they departed. Regardless of how many integrated videos you have, the combination of Switch Video with a specific start time allows you to maximize viewer engagement and interest.
