Tutorial: Youtube widget for Adobe Captivate 4


Just found this post on the Adobe Captivate blog. It shows how you can make a youtube widget and show youtube videos directly in your Captivate projects just be adding the url to the widget parameters. Pretty neat stuff and it’s the first widget I have seen public since Adobe Captivate 4 was launched.

You can find instructions, download the sourcefiles and the finished widget from the link below.

Have fun!




  1. This works really well in Captivate, but I’m don’t see the embedded video when I import the swf file into Dreamweaver. Any suggestions?

  2. Never mind I figured it out. But for folks trying this, you won’t actually see your video until you publish it on your site. It will look as if it’s disappeared when you preview it in your browser. Just take that leap of faith…
