Adding a Sign In Form to a video

In this topic you will learn how to add a sign in annotation to a video.

The Sign In widget (commonly referred to as a "lead wall", "turnstile" or "gate") is a flexible, powerful tool that lets you track known viewers. It is used to generate leads, to have learners and trainees sign in, or to add a gate to a video. Viewers will only have to sign in once, and we'll automatically remember them every time they watch a Brightcove Interactivity video on the same device.
