You can upload video's in Shaman, in which case the video will represent an entire multistate or slide and will play fullscreen. The video interaction element allows you to place, resize and play an MP4 video on your content slide. You can add one or more video's on one slide. This is useful when you want a video effect in the background or have 2 videos on one page.

The file type accepted for this element is mp4.

Here's how you create one:

  • Open the presentation and navigate to the slide to which you would like to add a video. If you change your mind, you can always reorder your slides later.

  • Hover your mouse to the Add (+) icon, click Interaction

  • Click Video element and the element will be added to your slide.

  • Click on the settings icon and the menu will appear on the right side of the screen.

  • Name your element then click the upload file button. Select the video you want to upload.

  • Once the video is uploaded, you can adjust the size by moving your mouse cursor and resize of the video area. When your mouse cursor is inside the area, you can drag to reposition the video element.

  • Once your video is inserted, you can make adjustments. You have the following options:



Custom thumb

When uploading a video, Shaman will autogenerate a still image. You can also upload a custom thumb (.jpg, .png). make sure to adhere to the same size as the video file.


When you enable autoplay, the video will start playing once the user visits the slide.


When you enable Loop, the video will repeat after it is finished and keep playing.
