    ♥How To Sync Content With Video♥

    ♥Schrene Level 4

      Ok so it took a while but I finally got it figured out...

      Yay!!! I can quit pulling out my hair!!!

      You can sync text and animations.... or pretty much anything you can do in Edge... with your video here is my sample:

      I kept the timer visible so you could see.... watch about every 15 seconds the text changes...

      and there is an animation that is activated around 75 seconds

          Hi,

           

          Here is one demo using your text and the edge tool (update panel): https://www.box.com/s/8oc5sbrudnp1o6sclc0j

          You can put your video events (pause, play) within the update panel. Video and subtitles can run in parallel.

           

          But i tested your link using Safari.

          First load: the console returns an edge error but video and subtitles run in parallel.

          Reload: console returns no errors. Video stops frequently but video and subtitles run in parallel.

          So preload=none, is it a good choice?

            Oh the joys of browsers not all being on the same page

            I was so excited that I finally found a "solution" that worked so I did not test code on any browser but FF...

            I tested my project in Opera and it's not syncing with text at all????

            I re-uploaded my files and changed the video to preload="metadata"  I'll see if that makes any difference???

            I am wondering if my custom controls might be part of the problem as well??

            I guess it's back to the drawing board....

            As Thomas Edison once said... "I have not failed. I've just found 10,000 ways that won't work. "

            I wasn't aware the update panel existed..... thanks for pointing that out..

            I see how you set up the text to change at specific time.....

            but I don't see how you could put the pause and play button in there so that it would pause and play text as well???
