Can anyone suggest an appropriate strategy for this? I want to use something like this for mid-roll ads ect that could disable the controls etc. Could someone point me in the right direction? Is there any way to just reset the total time or to tag some elements as not belonging to the main time line?
For me, I implemented midrolls using a similar approach described in a webcast that Jodie O'Rourke put out, basically it uses a proxy element and swaps out the real media for the midroll as necessary, it works quite well and does not affect the duration of the real media.
You can find the webcast here:
Hope that helps!
