Click to start Videos on Demand in a console

What are you trying to do? (Detailed description)
Opening on-demand console.

What is the challenge you’re experiencing?
Video automatically starts playing

Do you have a workaround that you use right now?
No other than users needing to stop the video. We host many resources on console and would like a click to start option instead of automatically playing.

I am not sure why you wouldn’t want the video to start when it’s an on-demand recording??

Good question! It is the way we are using it for some of our journeys. We are hosting a few options that allow the audience member to look at the console before the video begins. I just wanted to have the option to control it as a designer as it may not apply to all journeys or ondemand videos.

One way you could make this work is to divide your video into chapters. This does require that a PPT is uploaded as well but you can choose not to show that in the audience console. Then you can add a pre-roll to the video which can run for a few minutes before it starts with the main content. By having chapters the users can then decide more or less when they want to watch the main content.
