Play video on touch

We would like to implement a video in 1 of the presentations.

But: It shouldn't autoplay - only when a user presses play (screens are touch sensitive) it should start playing. If "play" has not been pressed, the slide should advance to the next one after 10 seconds. If "play" has been pressed - the slide should remain visible for the length of the video and advance to the next when the video has ended.

I've been searching the forum but nobody seems to be using this kind of feature. Anybody knows if this is possible and is willing to help me out?

Thanks in advance!

Hi there.  Our Video Widget does not have the feature you are looking for when it comes to nobody touching the video.

Using our Video Widget, you can set it up for an interactive display - and you can set it up so that it does not auto play.  However, you can't set it up so that a video will play until done when touched, but advance to the next video if no one touches it in 10 seconds.     Using our widget, if you set the video to Play Until Done, then the display will sit on the first video in the list until someone plays it, then when done will move to the next video in the list and sit there until someone plays it.  

To do something like this you would need to create your own custom HTML and insert that into your presentation.  Others here may have some insight on how to do that.
