Adding Movies or Video


(Bruce Kieffer) #1

Is there a simple stack to place and play movies on pages in my RW project?

I really like the player from archetypon
player 2 also for video.

There’s Player stack from Stacks4Stacks. Very good.

Unclear if you want to host your own videos, or if you are referring to Vimeo/YouTube services.

@Mathew, I would like to host them. I’d like to be able to play .mov videos too if possible.

@bruce: Then it’s pretty much a no-brainer: Player stack is excellent and very flexible. More here:

And in special cases you might want to combine TopBox with Player stack so the videos play in a lightbox. More on TopBox here:

I don’t see that the Player stack has volume control, just audio on/off. Is that true?

@Bruce: I think you are correct. Users already have volume control: their computers. Most folks know how to use this intuitively (right there on the keyboard for Mac users). Depending on your end audience, however, this might be an important feature for you.

I’d suggest contact Will directly by email to see if this is a current implementable feature or possibly something he could add in the future. He’s generally very open and responsive to suggestions.
