I am really having a hard time finding much information on interactive HTML5 services or best practices.

We currently have tons of HTML5 interactive elearnings produced in Captivate, Articulate, Canvas, and "other". These are pure HTML5 folders that simply play on their own with or without their own playbar.

We are currently storing these in a folder on our site and they play OK - we iframe to the source just as we would a video. I am really worried about both storage capacity and the amount of strain they put on our services going forward. For a while we were hovering around 30-40 content pieces but this has shot to 200 with 300-400 more schedules in next 6 months. These range from 5MB-100MB+, so it is literally like dealing with video.

I have researched several hosts and they all say they do HTML5 interactive... but they don't. What is the correct way of storing and playing html5 content that is interactive? Also we have tons of videos and would like to use one service.

    There is no way to answer your question without being involved in your site. There are too many variables and we don't know what your servers are like or how they're set up. It's very broad and not answerable here. – Rob Aug 20 '16 at 2:12
  • @Rob - Tell me what variables you want to know. I can answer whatever you want and I control everything. I can also do whatever I want within a reasonable budget. We have a really good dedicated hosting right now but the only issue with host is 100GB hard drive. We can upgrade this but got me thinking that this kind of format shouldn't be stored like that. – blankip Aug 20 '16 at 4:24

    Sorry but the question is too board, opinionated and recommendations on services are considered off-topic. You will need to update your server, use a video streaming service, or use a CDN delivery network to full-fill increasing demand. Your find hosting advice in our catch all, or use our chat channel to ask such questions. – Simon Hayter Aug 20 '16 at 17:36

    A unique question doesn't not by-pass our guidelines and rules. Additionally, you are fixated on one reason, of several mentioned in the closure reason. Users can appeal a closure by visiting our Meta, or by voting for reopen. – Simon Hayter Aug 22 '16 at 8:22

    Actually there was two other people who voted for the question to be closed, this doesn't appear because I reopened the question and re-closed, as I believe the question was too board, rather than opinionated (something that you are fixated on). Anyhow, comments are not for content disputes, if you are dissatisfied with my response, then please visit our meta and hopefully other moderators can assist you. – Simon Hayter Aug 22 '16 at 18:11
