Slideshow playing videos - or workaround?

Sep 19, 2011 5:51 AM

Hi there,

 

another question :-)

I want to create a slideshow. On the left side I have 3 thumbs for selection. On the right side I have space for my videos.

What I want to do:

When I click on thumb #1 I want to play video#1, when I click thumb#2 I want to play video#2, etc.

I tried this with a MSO but it didn't worked. Is there another way to realise this? Any ideas?

 

Thx in advance!

Christian

    Create three identical (except for the videos) pages and link to them.

    Yes, you can create html overlays and html articles.

    Well, normally it should work. But if you try to superimpose 3 different movies, each started by a button, then your css and js have to be more elaborated. I am not a html guru myself, my son says, that you should use absolute positioning and create a script which would change z-index of the placed movies. If the movies were not in the same place, then you would not need that script.

    No, you can't.

    You should use .mp4 or .m4v movies encoded with h264.

    Tomasz is correct.

     

    The iPad doesn't support flash so you can't use .swf or .f4v.
