Displays a control for playing Quicktime and Windows Media Player movies.
|ControllerSizeChanged||The size of the controller has changed.
When a movie first starts this event fires and allows you read the ControllerWidth/Height properties and then resize the MoviePlayer and or window to best accommodate that size. The event also fires if the movie changes size "on its own."
|Play||The current movie is about to begin playing.|
|Stop||The current movie is about to stop playing.|
|Boolean||If True, the movie will start playing automatically when it is assigned to the Movie property of the control. The default is False.|
|AutoResize||Boolean||If True, the MoviePlayer control resizes itself to fit the size of the movie.|
|Boolean||Draws a border around the movie area.|
|Controller||Integer||The type of controller the MoviePlayer displays.
It can take on the following values: 0=No movie controls, 1=Badge, 2=Full controller
|Integer||The height of the controller (pixels).|
|Integer||The width of the controller (pixels).|
|Double||The duration (in seconds) of the currently playing media.
The movie must be playing for this property of hold a value. If no movie is playing, it is set equal to zero.
|EditingEnabled||Boolean||If True, it is possible to edit the movie.
A MoviePlayer's methods for editing a movie are functional when EditingEnabled is True.
|HasStep||Boolean||If True, the controller has forward and reverse arrows to the right of the slider.
When set in code, HasStep takes effect the next time the MoviePlayer is assigned a movie.
|Looping||Boolean||If True, it replays the movie automatically when it reaches the end.|
|Movie||Movie||The movie that will be played.|
|OLEObject||Returns an OLEObject that you can use to access the MoviePlayer directly.|
|Palindrome||Boolean||If True, it plays the movie in reverse when the movie reaches its end. Looping must be True for Palindrome to work.|
|Integer||Indicates the type of movie the MoviePlayer will play.
PlayerType can take on the following values: 0 - Preferred player 1 - QuickTime player 2 - Windows Media player On Windows, the preferred player is the Windows Media Player, but if the WMP cannot play the movie, REALbasic will attempt to use the QuickTime player. On Macintosh, PlayerType is ignored, as the only type of player currently supported is QuickTime. If desired, set PlayerType to 2 to prevent REALbasic from trying the QuickTime player. On Linux, the MoviePlayer uses GStreamer by default (requires version 010+) and uses Xine if GStreamer is not available.
|PlaySelection||Boolean||If a selection is made (via SelStart and SelLength) and this property is set to True, only the selection will be played. If False, normal playback will occur.|
|Position||Double||The number of seconds from the start of the movie.|
|QTMovieController||Integer||Returns a pointer that refers to the MoviePlayer control. Of use to API programmers.|
|QTVRNode||Integer||The node that is currently being shown in the controller.|
|QTVRNodeCount||Integer||The number of nodes in the MoviePlayer's movie.|
|QTVRPan||Double||The pan angle in degrees of MoviePlayer's QTVR movie.|
|QTVRPanMax||Double||The maximum pan angle (in degrees) of the MoviePlayer's QTVR movie.|
|QTVRPanMin||Double||The minimum pan angle (in degrees) of the MoviePlayer's QTVR movie.|
|QTVRPanTiltSpeed||Integer||The speed of tilt motion (angle in degrees) of the MoviePlayer's QTVR movie.|
|QTVRTilt||Double||The tilt angle (in degrees) of the MoviePlayer's QTVR movie.|
|QTVRTiltMax||Double||The maximum tilt angle (in degrees) of MoviePlayer's QTVR movie.|
|QTVRTiltMin||Double||The minimum tilt angle (in degrees) of MoviePlayer's QTVR movie.|
|QTVRZoom||Double||The desired vertical field of view for the specified movie.
This value is constrained by the maximum field of view of the movie. Values that lie outside that limit are clipped to the maximum. Pan and tilt angle values are also clipped if, when combined with the current field of view, they would cause an image to lie outside the current constraints.
|QTVRZoomMax||Double||The maximum zoom field of view.|
|QTVRZoomMin||Double||The minimum zoom field of view.|
|QTVRZoomSpeed||Integer||The rate at which you can zoom.|
|Rate||Double||Sets the playback rate.
For example, the following values have these effects: 0 - Paused / stopped 0.5 - Half normal playback rate 1 - Normal playback rate 2 - Double normal playback rate -1- Reverse normal playback rate Since Rate is a Double, other values, including values outside this range, will work.
|SelLength||Double||Gets or sets the length (in seconds) of the selection.|
|SelStart||Double||Gets or sets the starting position (in seconds) of the selection.|
|Speaker||Boolean||Displays the speaker volume control.
When set in code, Speaker takes effect the next time the MoviePlayer control is assigned a movie.
|Volume||Integer||Gets or sets the movie's volume. The range is from 0 to 256.|
|Clear||Clears the movie's current selection.|
|Copy||Copies the movie's current selection to the Clipboard.|
|Cut||Cuts the movie's current selection and places it on the Clipboard.|
|Paste||Pastes the contents of the Clipboard to the Movie's current selection.|
|Play||Plays the current movie.|
|QTVRHotSpotCount||nodeID As Integer||Integer||Returns as an Integer, the number of QTVR hot spots in the movie with the node passed in nodeID.|
|QTVRHotSpotID||node As Integer, index as Integer||Integer||Returns as an Integer, the ID of a specific hot spot based on node number and hot spot index passed as parameters.|
|QTVRNodeTypeObject||node As Integer||Boolean||Determines whether the current movie has a QTVR object in it.|
|QTVRNodeTypePanorama||node as Integer||Boolean||Determines whether the current movie has a QTVR Panorama in it.|
|QTVRToggleHotSpotNames||Toggles whether HotSpot names are shown in the movie controller.|
|QTVRTriggerHotSpot||hotSpotID as Integer||Navigates to the specified hot spot in the MoviePlayer's QTVR movie.|
|Stop||Stops the current movie.|
|Trim||Retains the current selection (specified by SelStart and SelLength) and removes all other media.|
|Undo||Undos the last operation.
This is actually an Undo/Redo toggle. Set the EditingEnabled property to True to enable the user to make a selection using the MoviePlayer's controller. If the movie is not an EditableMovie, no changes can be saved.
Windows uses the Windows Movie Player to play movies and Macintosh uses the QuickTime player. On Linux, the MoviePlayer uses GStreamer by default (it requires version 0,10+) and uses Xine if GStreamer is not available.
The Controller property dictates how the movie controls (if any) will be displayed. Passing 0 (zero) means that there will be no user controls available. Passing 1 means that a movie icon or badge will be displayed in the lower left corner of the movie area instead of the controller. When this badge is clicked by the user, the badge disappears and the regular movie controls appear at the bottom of the movie frame. Passing 2 displays the regular movie controls.
This example sets the movie "myHomeMovie" as the movie to be played.
This example loads a movie called "MyMovie" from the current directory (folder) into MoviePlayer1 and plays it.
If you added the movie to your project, you can assign it to the movie property with only one line of code:
The following example uses the MovieController property to get the current position of the player:
