Pausing a video

Jul 25, 2012

I have a video on a slide that I would like to pause while I'm showing a layer and then resume the video when the layer is close. I can't get it working. There seems to be no resume capability...only play which restart the video from the start. Anybody done this before?

Hi, Yves - 

Take a look at this demonstration. This implements a video synchronized with the base timeline overlayed with a sequence of hotspots / objects. When clicked, these objects open a layer with specific feedback. The properties of this layer pause the base layer. See the gear icon next to the layer in the layers panel. When the layer opens it stops everything on the base timeline. When the layer closes all goes back to normal.

It looks like you "can" hide the video from the base layer using the "hide objects on base layer" as well as the base layer visibility controls on the timeline while in a layer. The timeline / playhead for the video starts over Might be worth a feature request. Seems like it should be possible to control the visibility of a video object without affecting its playhead.
