Possible to Execute Action at Specific Time In Seekbar?

Post by 1uv3 » Mon Aug 19, 2019 9:28 am

Hi All,

Is it possible to execute an action at a specific time in the seekbar? For example....I have a pinned video, when I point to the left in the video and say "contact us over here" I would like a contact button to appear. I know that this can be done with a timer.....but will the timer and video stay synchronized if there are any buffering issues? Seems that the timer would continue to count even if the video had a buffering issue. I could be wrong though.

Anyone? Thanks!

+1

as anyone responds, obviously not!?
I think it might only work with a "seek media" kind of trigger of an action filter. But that would need another feature request :)

Edit:
Looks like the answer has already been given here:

I have answered this elsewhere, you can not do it right now but the workaround is the seek bar can use an activate action to start a timer.
This can then have an action on deactivate.

Hi,
Ok, this was just a workaround, not ideal I grant you and has its flaws.
