Hello,

Is there a way of embedding videos in Limesurvey? I need to embed 10-15 videos per survey. Is that possible? What formats work best, apart from Flash? Any experiences to share?


Thanks a lot for your time!


Regards
Nandan

Just did that this morning. My content is Mp4 video embedded into HTML created in Camtasia. I found that putting the HTML page the video output is embedded in into an iframe worked best.

<iframe frameborder="0" height="500" scrolling="no" src="LINK HERE" width="800"></iframe>

I'd be curious if there is a better way too.

Thanks for that!

But what is the process? I can't code, but like to believe that I can follow coding instructions quite well!

There are many descriptions of the process on the internet. It is not much different in Limesurvey. And I bet you'll find instructions here in the forum.

If you search with google ( www.google.com.br/webhp?sourceid=chrome-...rvey%20embed%20video ), you'll find this (a little older, but I don't think there has changed much):

But it all depends on what you want to embed. Videos from Youtube, selfhosted videos (will probably need a videoplayer, depending on the browser capability).

I'm not a LimeSurvey GmbH member. I answer at the LimeSurvey forum in my spare time. No support via private message.

I use video.js since it has fallback to flash for browsers that do not support html5.

It also has a pretty good API that can be used to implement survey logic. They have a bunch of docs on their site that will walk you through the setup.
