The Fluidic Player is the universal content playback experience for Captivate Prime and allows for a simple, unified playback experience, regardless of the type of content being played. Content types include MP4, PPTXs, DOCX, Adobe Captivate or Adobe Presenter projects, SCORM or AICC packages, and even xAPI-compliant content for your mLearning projects. Thank you HTML5!
Adding the Fluidic Player is really smart on Adobe's part, something they clearly heard loud and clear when speaking with customers for the two years they took to design and develop Captivate Prime. The Captivate Prime team also manages the Adobe Captivate and Adobe Presenter products. Both tools allow you to create customized playback experiences for the learner. While this flexibility is great for the content developer, it isn't always ideal for the learner because they need to learn how to use/access different playbars, sidebars, player icons, TOCs, Notes, and Search options, just to name a few.
Thanks to the Fluidic Player, learners will be able to bookmark any section of the course, or add explanatory notes at any point in their content, which they can reference during revisions.
My hope is that down the road the Notes can be shared with other learners in an organization.
There are also buttons on the Player for a TOC, Closed Captions, and Full Screen.
The Table of Contents is clean, but maybe a bit light on features at the moment. Closed captioning, which appears across the bottom of the content, also has a clean appearance. Lastly, the Full Screen toggle works great and is very responsive.
