seekbars for different audios in one node

Post by canyondemars » Wed Jul 10, 2019 4:52 pm

Hello everyone,
it is nice to come this community. I'm currently working on a project with Pano2VR and got some questions. I'm not very technical myself so hope I can put the problem clearly enough.

I'm trying to put an audio guide with multiple audio clips in my pano tour. I already figured out how to put multiple audio clips in one node (namely in one picture) and to control them with different hotspots. My problem comes when I want to add a separate seekbar for each audio clip.

The seekbar works well when there is only one audio in one node. Then the seekbar "media element" is _background and I don't give the audio a different ID for itself (I use _background also as ID). But if there are two or more audios (namely, sound) in one node, it totally gets messed up. If I give two audios different IDs, the "media element" to _background doesn't work.

I can also write down the separate ID of the audio clip like clip_2 in the "media element", but then the seekbar only works for that specific audio clip, not others.

The seekbar is listed as a child of the hotspot I use specially for control audios. I tried to use the description of this special hotspot and write down $hd in the media element for seekbar in the skin, but it didn't work. Does anyone know how I can put multiple seekbars for different audios in one node without creating different skins for each audio clip? Thanks all in advance.

Hi 1uv3, thank you so much for the reply. This is basically what I have now as well. The problem is that I have more than 20 nodes and about 15 audios. Then by doing like this I need to make 15 seekbars in the skin, each connected to a particular audio clip. It feels redundant. Is there a way to put only one seekbar in the skin and refer the seekbar's media element to different audios I put in in the project?

Hey you're welcome :-)

Yeah, you can use variables to achieve what you want. I'll create a vid for you. I'm not sure if this is the easiest way of using variables but it's the only way I know at the moment.

Stay tuned.

hmmm.... seems I spoke a little too soon. There isn't an option to set logic variables for which song is being loaded by the seekbar. All you can do is select one song at a time. There might be another way to do this but you'll probably need Hopki to chime in. He's an expert with Pano2vr and might be able to shed a little light if it's possible of not.

I'll keep tinkering though to see if I can come up with anything.
