Missing triggers/actions related to medias?
I'm working with a lot of audio and video files. However, I have trouble adding conditions and triggers on these files. Furthermore, the SL player's seekbar isn't very practical for mobile devices.
- I have "When Media completes" that can activate some triggers when an audio file or video file reaches its end.
- I do not have "When Media starts" which would allow me to program triggers when the user starts a video or when an audio starts playing.
- I do not have "When Media reaches" which would allow me to program triggers when a video or audio reaches a certain point of its own respective seekbar.
- I cannot program anything related to a video or audio on the base layer from a secondary layer, such as "Pause media" when the layer's timeline starts.
Let's say that I want to show a layer when a video reaches the 2:00 mark. I can't, unless I sync it with the SL player's timeline. Again, the seekbar isn't practical and I need to add more triggers so I can pause and resume the timeline accordingly to whatever action the user might take.
Let's say a user wants to skip an important video and that I have a pop-up layer to wanr him or her that s/he might miss important information, I cannot pause the video when the layer is called with a "simple trigger"; I need to use variables.
Let's say that a video's and player's seekbars are synchronized and a layer appears at the 3:00 mark. Well, if the user toggles the video's seekbar, it de-syncs with the player's, messing everything up.
Are there any plan to add even more actions/conditions related to audio and video files, such as "When Media starts", "When Media reaches", "Pause media" when [this layer]'s timeline starts, and so forth? There is "When Media completes" as a condition, so when will the rest will be available?
Thanks in advance
