"Need to Know" Items for Video Triggers

It's important to note that if you choose to use "Based on accumulated time spent watching" the tag will only be applied if the browser tab with the video in it remains the active tab the entire time. We can not track accumulated time watched if the tab isn't active while the contact is watching the video.
