    How to add video's control bar?

    Feng Sien

      Today, I've searched 24 pages here for related discussion but no solution was found.

       

      These pictures I listed here were created by other people.

       

      I want to know how to add a control bar below the video? Is it to use the Insert->Video button of Adobe Presenter (0002.jpg), or use the Insert->video button of PowerPoint (0003.jpg)? When I insert a video (in .flv format), it shows like a white box in the original PPT (see 0004.jpg), looks different from the existing 0001.jpg.

       

      And after I published this PPT (with the white box-like video) locally, when this video slide loads, that video plays immediately, but I want pause/stop function.

       

      I also noticed if I try to import a video in .m4v (MP4 Video), PowerPoint says QuickTime is required.

       

      I used to insert video in year 2010, but I forget the details. Maybe at that time I inserted a video with pause/stop function, but I forget.

       

      Or, is it because a specific video format would naturally show the control button?

          You would likely need to insert a SWF player that contains the video. Then you could keep the SWF's playback seperate from the Presenter player (meaning the playback controls for the video would be independant of whether the Presenter slide was playing or paused).

           

          I don't believe there is any method to include the player controls in Presenter (other than the default Presenter play bar).

            What do you mean,

            "insert a SWF player that contains the video."?

             

            ---------------The following sentence is not related with above.----------------------

            After publication, the video file inside the assets folder has .flv files, which are converted by presenter during the publication process.

              Think of Presenter as your SWF player. It has a play bar that shows at the bottom of the content (or bottom right in full screen). So you would be embedding a different player via the Insert Flash option in Presenter (could be a Captivate SWF if that helps with an example) which could then be told to play independantly of the Presenter SWF.

              Presenter would do the conversion when importing the videos, not on publication, but that is more semantic than anything. I seems like Presenter 10 is doing this for all files, including MP4's. Presenter 9 and 8 only did the FLV conversion for the supported non FLV or MP4 files.

                Hello, I sent you an Email that contains this video file. Could you take a look at it when you have time? Thank you.
