I was talking with a friend and we were trying to figure out if it's possible to have people create a bookmark on a streaming video so, if they leave midway they can come back and pick up from where they left off?
If this makes sense and is possible how could you do this? Would it be in the Flash encoding or is it through HTML?
Also, would this be called VideoMarking? I see 2 other posts on here regarding videomarking, sound similar.
Thank you for any help or suggestions.
Not sure... but you may be able to use "Flash cookies" or local shared objects to "remember" the spot in the video.
Local shared objects can be used to remember user, their place in a game, score, etc so if you could read the elapsed time of the video and remeber that time, store it as a local shared object... then in theory you should be able to come back later read the "cookie" and continue on where to left off.
Info on Local Shared Object here:
Best of luck!
Thank you, I'll check it out and hopefully it's the answer I'm looking for.
