New feature: Play an entire chapter with one click

Published by | Friday, September 16th, 2011

You can now play an entire chapter by clicking a chapter title on a course’s table of contents page. All movies in that chapter will play, one after another. Toggle auto-play on or off by clicking the auto-play chapter button at the bottom of the player.

Clicking a chapter title plays all movies within the chapter

If you don’t see this button in your player, log in to lynda.com and go to the my account menu at the top right of the page, then choose site preferences. Change your player preference to Flash, QuickTime Custom, or Windows Media.

    A nice and often wanted feature. Thanks! Is it possible to make the custom player go full screen in a future update? I could always toggle the browser window fullscreen, but all I want is full screen video. The reason I want this is because sometimes i sit back in front of my TV watching lynda.com documentaries. Perhaps another future update would be to play the entire course automatically.

    Kip Holcomb,

    This is a great feature – I use it all the time.

    You might consider – “Play to Stop” as another feature to incorporate in your future design.

    You initiate “Play to Stop” and it will play in sequence through the chapters to the end of the course; unless you hit stop.

    Best always,

    Is the auto-play feature available somewhere on mobile (iPhone)? That’s where I could use it most!

    Great idea, but Autoplay feature not working too well for me. It seem to skip certain videos especially at the end of the chapter. When going to the next chapter, it plays the 2nd video instead of the first one.
