What controls the color of my Hotspot & how can I change it?

Hotspots turn any part of your video into an interactive and engaging asset. They can call attention to an object in the video or make any area clickable to drive actions such as opening a URL link, changing video time, starting an email message, playing a video or audio clip, prompting your viewer to subscribe, and more. It only takes seconds to create a hotspot video and can be customized to align with your company’s branding using Mindstamp’s interactive video platform

With Mindstamp, you have the ability to change the color of your hotspots on a video level design where the changes only occur on that video, or you can update on an account level design so that the changes are implemented across your entire account. Which setting you choose to update depends entirely on your preferences for creating videos.

Account Level Design

Access your account settings by clicking on the ‘More’ tab in the top right corner and then navigating to ‘Account’

Once you’re in ‘Account’, you’ll want to access the ‘Style and Branding’ tab in order to edit the accent color. You can choose any color which will be inherited across hotspots, play buttons, and interaction marker branding. Remember that you are editing Account level design which means that changes here will apply to all videos in your account unless overridden at the group or video level.

Video Level Design

Access the “Design” settings in a Mindstamp video by clicking the Design button on the right side of the screen.

Hotspot design settings available on Mindstamp

Similar to before, you can now customize the color of the hotspot indicator by either selecting from our list of pre-set colors or entering your own color code! By entering your own color code, you can promote brand recognition and synchrony between your company and content.
