Poster image for videos do not work.

I have not used videos in tours for several years but I now need it.

However i discovered that poster images does not work at all.
It does not matter if it is distorted or normal videos and neither does it for paused or non paused.

That also means that it is really difficult to use the editor to place distorted videos as it apparently does not support mp4.

I can see that problems of different similar kind has been posted for the last 5 years.
I can see it did work for me back in 2014 but after going through all my backups i can not find any on that works.

It looks like I need to make a normal plugin image as a substitue to get the correct ath atv settinsgs

Hi,

I find no problems with the posters, although i didn't check on flat videos, i would expect it works as good as with the 360 videos..

For positioning of flat distorted Video hotspots you could use the distorted hotspot editor from the ToolBox.

Just make sure the videoplayer is visible and do your thing.

Hope it helps,
Tuur *thumbsup*

Thanks. I have been looking for that tool but could not find it.

As far as I can see the only way is to edit the video with a startimage showing a video play icon if tou do not want to start the video automatically.

The whole idea with a poster is to show that this is a clickable video. But it does not work.
I can se that it was posted a question i may about it but with no answer,

This is not true!
Maybe it is your idea, but not the intention of the videoposter!

Well I can not see any other use for it.
Maybe 10 years ago when you had to wait several minutes for the video to load
