Using Digital Video

Restricting Video Access -- For some digital video content, you may want to restrict access to the entire video to make sure that the user only sees one segment at a time and cannot navigate through the entire video. On the previous tab, I used the default control bar of the player. If you do this, you can not restrict the user to a limited segment of the video but the user has the ability to move beyond any start point you give them. To limit access to specific segments and not allow the user to move beyond those segments, I have setup the player with external controls. These external controls interact with Javascript to playback a specific, limited segment. On the right you may notice that the user can still navigate to other segments; they just cannot scrub through the video to get there. But rather than show all segments in the video, I am only showing a limited number of segments. So if I wanted to show just specific segments, this set up allows me to do so. (Using a Simple Page to make this tabbed display means that clicking on the link displays the default show item page and you move off this page. Return to this page by clicking on the Using Digital Video in the menu bar.)

Interactive Video Playback -- Finally, on the last tab, I have used the plugin for Simile Timeline to create an interactive timeline for representing and selecting video segments to play. As the video plays, the sweep moves through the timeline showing you the video segment you are on. In this case, I am using external controls to restrict access to a specific segment. If you want to see a different segment, you must select it on the timeline. (Due to limitations of this demo, you must stop the video before selecting a new segment to play. As before, using a Simple Page to make this tabbed display means that clicking on the link in the timeline bubble displays the default show item page and you move off this page. Return to this page by clicking on the Using Digital Video in the menu bar.)
