1. A processor-implemented method for generating a second video file, comprising:
receiving a first video file, the first video file including a representation of at least one product or service;
receiving a definition of a hotspot associated with the representation of the at least one product or service, the definition of the hotspot including location information, time information, and interaction information for the hotspot;
receiving caption information corresponding to the hotspot;
storing the caption information in a first data storage area;
adding the definition of the hotspot to the first video file to define a second video file;
storing the second video file in a second data storage area;
providing instructions, via a processor and over a network, for sending to a device associated with an output, the instructions when executed by the device causing the device to:
initiate a display of the second video file;
initiate presentation of one or more interactive features, the one or more interactive features including (1) the hotspot associated with the representation of the at least one product or service, and (2) a viewer-selectable interface configured to enable or disable interactivity of the hotspot based on one or more categories associated with the hotspot;
monitor for viewer interaction with the hotspot when interactivity of the hotspot is enabled;
display the caption information as an overlay of the hotspot when viewer interaction with the hotspot is monitored; and
initiate, upon viewer interaction with the hotspot and simultaneously with the display of at least a portion of the second video file, a display of a transaction interface configured to allow viewer purchase of one or more products or services associated with the representation of the at least one product or service.
