This example displays the use of the feature by first loading a pre-generated flat tiled image given with the video frame size.
The Controlbar Video Previewer enables video thumbnail previews to be easily added to the controls while seeking.
This feature uses a generated set of video frames in a video contactsheet to enable fast access to the frames while seeking and mousing over the controlbar instead of waiting for the preview which is slow.
A custom tooltip is created which like the original controlbar tooltip can be easily customised and styled.
If contact sheet generation is not possible with your platform dynamic loading of thumbnails is possible. (contactsheets are desireable for faster loading)
- Fast access to video previews without waiting to seek video frames or loading individual images which creates delays.
- Interacts with the controls plugin independantly as a seperate plugin therefore will work with customised control plugins.
- Customisable and styleable tooltip.
- Ability to use the thumbnails generated from video frames instead of contactsheets.
