Problems Looping Video

Jul 10, 2015

Hi everyone. I'm working in SL2 and am having issues with my videos looping. I placed a video on the timeline and created a trigger that plays media (video 1 for example) when the media (video 1) completes. It does loop, but not smoothly. When the video restarts it pauses but I hear the audio, and maybe the video might move again slightly. I'm not sure if this is a glitch or if I need to add something more to it or what. I would rather have the video loop infinitely (until the user advances manually) using one video file then to create a really long timeline with multiple instances of the same file. I have attached a sample to show what I have now. Thanks in advance for your help!

Hi Lee,

Thanks for sharing the file. I saw the behavior you were referring to - and looked for some similar behaviors in a new file. It seems that this was reported to our QA team in terms of the blip you mentioned and the image looking to have shifted. 

It seems the current workaround is: 

  • Delete the video looping trigger
  • Create an audio file of just silence that is for 0.1 second or 0.2 seconds (the smallest possible file).
  • Create a trigger for the video to play whenever the audio file completes
  • Create a trigger for the audio file to play whenever the video completes
