SL Video options: Looping and layering?

Aug 01, 2012

Hi Everyone,

I would like to have a video play automatically and loop continuously. However, I don't see any option to allow for looping. Please help.

Also, is it possible to place the video behind a frame. This feature was not possible in PPT 2007 but is possible in PPT 2010. Is it possible in SL?

Thank you!

Boy, that didn't work for me. I checked your sample, thank you, but in my SL2 the video didn't loop. Just stopped at the cute little koalas.

I tried the same settings on my vid. My original vid was 7secs, then I edited it Camtasia to loop without the player and it worked in Windows Media Player....not so much in SL2.

Am I doing something incorrectly?

Much love!

Hi MaNaCHa,

I'm not sure why that original video isn't working, but there's certainly something funky going on with it. Usually, when you run an uncooperative video file through Camtasia (I tried this as well to no avail) it will cleanse it of whatever the issue is. However, this isn't the case today. I took the liberty of running the file through Adobe Media Encoder and that seemed to clean it up. There's still a bit of stutter between the loops (on my end anyway) but it does loop now.

I wish I had more insights to share, but I'm stumped as to why the video file isn't working as expected. I'm attaching the cleaned file.




Hi Mike,

There are no restrictions regarding altering the vid, per the subscription source.

However, to finally resolve the issue, I copied the vid 3 times and stitched them together in Camtasia. Voila! I got the length I needed without the hiccup or the use of triggers.

This work-around method worked beautifully because the scenery doesn't change.

Again, thank you.
