What is the dummy progress bar?

Before I teach you how to set up your progress bar, it's important to talk more about what this feature does.

The dummy progress bar is one of the most commonly used features in sales pages, VSLs, and so on. It simulates the progress of the watched time of the video at a faster speed than the actual playback, giving the impression that the video is shorter. This way, the user watching the video is more likely to watch it until the end or reach the sales pitch, increasing conversion chances.
Now that the functionality of this feature is clearer, let's move on to the configuration:

Learn how to set up the dummy progress bar feature

To set up your progress bar, you need to have uploaded your video to our platform. Once you've done that, simply follow these steps:

Open the video you want to configure in the dashboard.
Click on the "Dummy Progress Bar" option.

Within the configuration, you can customize three details:
Height: The value of the height the bar will have beneath your video.
Speed: The speed at which the bar will progress based on the video's final time.
Percentage: The percentage of the video that the progress bar will advance more quickly. For example, if you set it to 50%, the progress bar will move faster until halfway through the video.

Once you have configured it according to your preferences, simply click PUBLISH, and your progress bar will be set up!
