Video loopback in SL2 (output running on Win8.1)
Jan 19, 2015
We are facing an issue with looping back video in SL2. We used to use the following method for looping video:
1. Put a trigger on the slide to start media when timeline starts; and
2. Put a trigger to play media when media completes on the video.
This procedure is as described on various community forums and we have used it in the past on SL1 and it worked well. We are using SL2 on Win8.1 64 bit OS, and when we used this method on this platform, the video plays only once and stops (both on preview as well as when published). Feeling that something might be wrong with our platform, we proceeded with creating and testing an SL2 .story file on a Win7 32 bit OS. The loopback worked well and when published and accessed via a Win7 browser (IE and Chrome) the video loopback works well.
So then we proceeded testing the output and access the published content from a Win8.1 computer (IE and Chrome) and the result is that the video plays only once and stops.
Issue: though it might not be a direct issue with SL2, the output generated by SL2 which includes loopback videos may not be properly displayed on a Win8.1 given the way browsers on Win8.1 may interpret the output. ( We haven't tested on Win8)
Is anyone else facing this issue? Is that a known issue? If so, timeframe for resolution? Thanks.
(Please note that we have our own webserver, and host and test online, no use of .story files on network drives, etc. ).
