<script src="video-pointer.js"></script>

2. Embed an Html5 video into the webpage and add your custom descriptions for the video pointers.

<section class="video-pointer" id="vp1">
  <video preload="auto" autoplay loop class="pointer-video" muted>
      <source src="big_buck_bunny_240p_1mb.mp4" type="video/mp4">
  </video>
  <section class="pointer-items">
      <button class="pointer-item">
          <div class="pointer-item-title">
              <img src="point-1.png" class="pointer-expander">
              <h3>Primary Connectivity</h3>
              <img src="point-2.png">
          </div>
          <ul class="pointer-item-details">
              <li>Time to connect</li>
              <li>Turnkey connection</li>
          </ul>
      </button>

          <div class="pointer-item-title">
              <img src="point-1.png" class="pointer-expander">
              <h3>Business Continuity</h3>
              <img src="point-2.png">
          </div>
          <ul class="pointer-item-details">
