Should we loop multiple videos in the same placeholder or play them in separate placeholder? Which method is better to effectively utilise Rise cache?

Sanjay,

Having multiple videos in the same placeholder should work fine for you.

I don't have an issue with the video playing.  I use this code to play and loop one video on the presentation:

<video src="http://<my webserver>/co/videos/ourstory.mp4"; width="908" height="515" autoplay></video>.  The next line is identical, but pointing to a different video on the server.  The problem is that both videos begin playing at the same time.  I am using the html item from the menu.  You only see the video from one of the videos, but the audio plays for both of them.  Am I missing something?  Is there a better way to accomplish playing multiple videos?  Thank you.

Larry,

I believe you'll need to add both of these videos to a Video Widget playlist in order to play them in order. As it stands, both videos will play at the same time with no scheduling.

That got it.  I had tried that widget with YouTube earlier and it didn't work very well, so I dismissed it.  Right after I posted my question, I decided to try it with videos on my webserver.  It has been running great ever since!  Thank you for your help!
