There are two levels of configuration that you can specify for CaptivatePlayer. The web and EXE versions of CaptivatePlayer read captivate_playlist.xml (a required file), to know which Captivate content to play. This is due to the way security is implemented in Macromedia Flash Player. A SWF file cannot read the contents of a local folder; you must manually specify it in the captivate_playlist.xml file. To do so, type the names of your Captivate SWF files into the XML file.
The XML file has a few configuration options that you can edit. These options control the way CaptivatePlayer plays your Captivate content. The configuration options specify:
- auto play
- the starting sound volume
- whether or not to scale the size of the Captivate content
Advanced authors can specify these options in the index.html file that calls the CaptivatePlayer.swf file, but the XML file takes precedence.
The following example is a typical web deployment.
