Hallo together,


I use Inquisit 4 Web and it is necessary to show quite a long video sequence within the experiment. Due to the file size I would prefer not to load the video online, but load a file that is saved on the local computer.


Is it possible to open a file from the local computer within a web experiment? And if so, how do I achieve that?


Thank you in advance.

Yes. You do so by specifying the path to the file on the local machine, e.g.


<item someitem>


/ 1 = "C:\MyFolder\MyBigVideoFile.mpg"


</item>

Thank you for the very quick answer.


I haven't expected to be that easy.


Thx
