If you are using an mp4 for the html player then as Julian suggested just
convert and upload an flv of the same file using the flash video page type.

But the simplest and most widely compatible solution is to upload your mp4
to a streaming server such as YouTube or Vimeo which is better for video

I've seen the problem you mention with iSpring previously and it's
complicated to get the iSpring publishing settings correct in a way that
works with the Xerte Flash engine especially as newer versions of iSpring
publish to AS3 etc and the free versions had far less control over output

The alterantive is to upload your converted iSpring files to a publoically
accessible place and then use the embed content page instead but really a
streaming server is the best solution for all sorts of reasons.

Subject: [Xerte] Problem with ispring template displaying the wrong size
when viewed full screen in flash

I hope someone here can help!

I have created a XOT object which contains an animation created in
PowerPoint. In the html5 version there is no problem as the animation was
saved as an mp4 video file which worked a treat no problem, however the
client needs the output to be in flash as well as html5 (as they have old IE
computers). the only way I could get the animation to be sufficiently clear
within the flash output was to create this using ispring and use the ispring
page in XOT - which works great if viewing this in the default window size,
but if it is being viewed with the fullscreen window size, when you move
forward to that page, it shows only the top left corner of the page which is
hugely magnified.

If I access the page in default mode and then change it to fullscreen, it it
fine, but if I am already in fullscreen mode it isn't.

Can anyone advise of a solution to this for me please.

Thanks in advance
