You can make adjustments to the following preferences before embedding the video:

  • Aspect Ratio: This is the proportional relationship between the video's height and width. You can choose from 16:9 (default), 4:3 or custom.
  • Width and height: This is the size of the embedded video player in pixels. This will adjust based on the aspect ratio you choose.
  • Start At (In seconds): This setting controls the time in the video where playback will start.
  • Interactivity: You can choose from these options (All, Search and Rating Only or None)
  • All- Allows the viewer to search within the video, rate the video, make notes, access the table of contents, and add discussion posts.
  • Search and Rating Only - This allows the viewer to search through the video and rate it without accessing the other interactive features.
  • None- This removes all the interactive features.
  • Autoplay: This allows the video to begin playing automatically when the webpage loads.
  • Enable 'watch in Panopto': This option displays an arrow that allows viewers to open the video in the complete interactive player.
