pinned video start/stop

Post by wiso » Tue Jul 10, 2018 12:12 pm

hallo,
i am sorry, i have still another question to pinned videos:

in "klickmode" i have the options - nothing, start/stop, 100%, ...

but if i choose 100% i can not stop the video, i have to wait till it plays to the end.


is this right, or is there a possibility to stop the video before the end?

thx,
regards,
wiso

Hi wiso,
We had a lot of requests that popped out and popped out 100% also started the videos so we changed it to this way back at the start of V5.
So to check my understanding the video is pinned but not playing.
You want it to pop out and play, but then when closed stop.
I can not see a way to do this but then if this is the case why not have a pinned image then cover with a poly hotspot.
Then link it to a container that would open the video in the skin filling the screen.
You can then add a close button to hide and stop the video.
There are also skin actions that can effect pinned media, such as play/pause etc.
EDIT: This is a request in the bug track so will get looked at by the dev's at some point.
Regards,
Hopki
