We create videos, amongst others for advertising purposes.
Short of just playing the video on the web, I want to interact with
the viewers and receive answers to questions, which I can write to
a database in the back. Our output format is FLash.
Our distribution goes over a P2P network, (bit torrent like)
so packets arrive from all over the place and the flv file gets
reassembled just before viewing. We achieve a near live streaming
effect, but the consequence for this project is that the solution
must be very small, like an xml file size, or enbtirely embedded in
the FLV file
1- At a moment of my choice, I want to stop the video, circle
or otherwise indicate some areas of the frame and ask a written
question where the multiple choice answers (max 5) are inside these
cirlced areas. The viewer clicks the cirlced area that shows his
answer of choice. The result is written to an MySQL table on my
server and the video continues.
I want to have this in a template form which enables us the
use the concept multiple times in different videos
2- Same idea, but this time, the viewer stops the video and
we record the frame number, afyter which the viewer writes a max
100 char message. Again the results are written to a database on my
