A Picture Plus an Interactive Video is Worth a Billion Words

July 18, 2023

Multimedia elements have long been part of the Mindstamp ecosystem, including the ability to add images to interactive videos that drive clicks and engagement, the ability to upload files like PDFs or presentations that users can then view and download, and the ability to use hotspots to ‘activate’ any image that’s already natively in the video itself.

Given how important images and multimedia are to engaging viewers, Mindstamp has continued to invest in unique and powerful tools that expand your ability to add rich, exciting and innovative image content to your interactive videos. If you haven’t had a chance to check these out, now is the time to do it:

Giphy Integration

Giphy provides perhaps the world’s most well known collection of short form, animated images. Whether you want to wade into the debate on pronunciation of the .gif file type, the reality is an animated image can draw attention, trigger a laugh and promote and even stronger desire for your viewer to interact (e.g. - look at the shiny ball!).

With Mindstamp’s Giphy integration you can search the database of stock GIFs from Giphy, grab the file that suits your needs, and drop it into your interactive video. Then all of the power of Mindstamp kicks in and you can make that GIF clickable and drive any subsequent value, including changing time in the video, branching to another video, downloading a PDF, launching a website and plenty of other capabilities

Generative AI Images

You’ve probably heard all the hype around generative AI. With a few words you can have an AI create compelling and visually stunning images across a spectrum of types. Want a cartoon rhino wearing a top hat? No problem. Want a picture of a library but done in the theme of Edvard Munch’s ‘The Scream’. Also not a problem. Mindstamp has integrated generative AI from DALL-E (part of OpenAI) and makes a snap to generative unique images directly in the Mindstamp editing interface and drop them into your video. From there, the sky is the limit on how you want to use them.

Traditional Stock Images

Mindstamp integrates directly with Unsplash, Pexels, and Pixabay, which are the top 3 stock image providers on the internet today. You can search each of these websites to find the perfect image to add to your Mindstamp videos.

Starting Stock Videos

Of course Mindstamp also gives you a library of videos to start with from stock libraries from both Pixabay and Pexels. When creating a new interactive video just click ‘Sample Videos’, decide what you want to search for and click one of the two resources to find a number of great resources.

If you’ve ever wondered how to make your static video content come alive, adding multiple media like GIFs and AI-generated images is the answer. Give it a shot by logging in today, or request a demo to learn more.
