    How to Display a parallel logo image In strobe media playback?

    Rasool.Irfan Level 1

      Hi,

      I am Newbie.

      I want to add a logo to video playing in strobe media playback..

      Do I need to edit the source code of strobe media playback?

      If yes then where I need to do the changes, which class I have to modify.

      Best Regards.

          Hi,

           

          One way to achieve this without modifying Strobe Media Playback would be to create a plug-in that does that.

          The first solution that comes to my mind is to create a proxy plugin that returns a parallel element encapsulating the player's media element.

          This would also contain an ImageElement (the logo).

           

          I think you'll find it useful to check out the developer's guide and the plug-in guide.

           

          If you want to modify SMP, you could look at how VideoInfoOverlay is done (it's the overlay that shows up on top of the video if you right-click the control bar and select Strobe Media Playback info).

           

          Hope this helps,

          Mihai.

            Hi Mihai Teleru,

             

             

             

            Sorry for disturbing you again.

             

            What you replied that was very helpful.

             

            I created another class  in strobe media playback (like you mentioned the VideoOverlay )and  created a logo.

             

            But problem i am facing is how to add the created image logo to strobe media container.

             

            I tried to a lot, but all in vain.

             

            I know I am doing wrong somewhere.

             

            My SMP knowledge is not too much neither i am good at as3.

             

            So please do another favor, help me out of this problem.

             

            I am waiting for your favorable reply

            Many Thanks and Regards

            Irfan

              Hi,

               

              Take a look at the initializeView function from the StrobeMediaPlayback class.

              You'll be able to see how various overlay items are added to the container (such as the video info overlay, the buffering overlay, the big play button overlay etc.).

               

              Hope this helps,

              Mihai.

                Hi,

                 

                If i provide an encrypted Url to Strobe media playback. It show Authentication block.

                 

                My question is

                 

                Which class of SMP is responsible for checking whether its encrypted url or not.

                 

                And accordingly showing Authentication Dialog Block

                 

                 

                The plug-in resource you provided was really great. Thanks

                 

                And one more question

                When i try to upload plug-in statically it is showing plug-in on load error message in console.

                I then consulted your given plug-in doc

                It states that you need to have both plug-in swf and SMP source code at same places.

                So as of now i am bit confused.

                I have uploaded my swf on server and my Strobe media playback source code is local to my machine.

                Do I need to upload the source code also on my server or

                Do I need to install XAMP local to my machine?(which I got from forum)

                 

                 

                Many Thanks and Regards  for your feedbacks
