Video Controls in 1.19 pr2

Hello everyone!

can someone point me to an example where I could see the way to implement video controls for 360/VR mods in 1.19?
I have tried 1.18 xml "way" implementations but unfortunately the controls are popping up and then disappearing after the video is displayed.

Can someone at least tell me if it should work or not in 1.19 r2?

can you explain what exactly you mean?

Everything related to video panos that worked in 1.18, should work in 1.19 too.
E.g. the examples here are already using the 1.19 pre-release version.

Best regards,

Hi Klaus,

I'm having a mobile implementation of your plugin for 360 and VR playback for offline and online view.
The way how I'm trying to make the videointerface to show is as follow:
- Inside webvr.xml I copied the '<action name="setup_video_controls">....</action>'
- In the video.xml i'm icluding the videointerface.xml
- In the webvr.xml's webvr_onavailable action I'm calling setup_video_controls(); videointerface_videoready();

The results is that the video control interface pops up, then hides (probably overlapping by the video), I'm also having an exit button, the Enter VR icon and a switcher for Gyro/Dragging and all these icons are also became double sized.

If you please can give me an advise where I'm failing the implementation.

the pano video can't overlap any elements - is there an image element with 'plugin:video' ?

Or do you mean when entering the VR mode - the enter vr script in the webvr.xml hides all layers that don't have a vr="true" attribute.

About double-sized - the webvr.xml is designed to work with stagescale=1.0 and adjusts the the stagescale setting for this, but the videointerface.xml is designed to work with stagescale=0.5 on mobiles and stagescale=1.0 on tablets and desktop.

Btw - the final 1.19 will include an updated and VR capable video skin of course.

Best regards,

Hi Klaus,

thanks for the comments!

I managed to fix the scale issue.

About the disappearing of the video control:

I attached the dynamically generate video.xml by the app and indeed there is <image><sphere url="plugin:video" /></image> but I guess this should not be removed.

This is a small video to illustrate the effect: link

As you can see it doesn't hides the controls, it's more like it would overlap..

Thank you!

Have you added keep="true" to all videointerface elements?

If not, either add that or maybe better just move the videointerface include into the <scene>.
Note - layer and events elements without keep=true will be removed when loading a new pano/scene.

Best regards,

Dear Klaus

thank you for your help!!

It works now.

What I did is that I modified the start.xml <scene name="video_scene" onstart="plugin[video].play();videointerface_videoready();videointerface_setup_interface(); setup_video_controls();"><include url="%SWFPATH%/skin/videointerface.xml" />

Then since everything was working except the playback control I had to add manual the name of the Video Plugin inside the videointerface.xml's "videointerface_setup_interface"=>set(videointerface_video, 'Video');
