Introduction

While watching videos or listening to audios on your website/app, your end-users can enhance their viewing experience with the advanced player control features. They can control the player through their mouse (Onscreen Control) and their keyboard. They can go back to the previous page while watching the video, view and select the subtitle of their choice, select their desired video resolution, play and pause the video using the spacebar, control the playback speed of the audio, shuffle, repeat the audio and more…

 

Video Player Controls

Back Button:

While watching a video (DRM, Non-DRM) on your website, your subscribers/viewers can go back to the content details page of that specific video, by clicking on the back “<--” button on the player.  The back button's image background is in grey color so users can easily view it on white background.

 

Note:

  • When users play content from the "Featured Section", they can go back to the previous page by clicking on the Browser's back button. If they click on the Back button on the Player, it will take them to the "Content Details" page.
  • The back button doesn't display on the "Preview" and "Embed" players.

 

 

Subtitles:

If you have added subtitles to your videos in multiple languages, then your end-users can select the subtitle of their choice while watching the video on your website/app. They can choose the subtitle by clicking on the “Subtitle” button. (See Below Screenshot)

 

Note:

  • To know “How to Add Subtitles” to your videos, please check the help article “Adding Subtitle to Video
  • The subtitle is not supported in iOS devices (Browsers) when played in full-screen mode.

 

Resolution:

End-users can change the resolution of any video they watch on your website. They can select their desired resolution by clicking on the “settings” button. (See Below Screenshot). If you want to see how to change the resolution on the player, then you can test it in our demo player without taking a free trial.

 

 

Resume Watch

While watching a video on the Muvi Player, if the end-users close the player in the middle and choose to watch the video later, then next time when they open that particular video to watch, the player will resume playback of the video from where they have left watching it. They don't have to play the video again from the beginning as the player remembers where they have left watching. This feature works across all the platforms as well as for offline viewing (Mobile, TV Apps, and Website).

Enable Resume Watch for Single-Part content.

  • To enable "Resume Watch", go to "User Features" -->"Settings" in the CMS.
  • Select checkbox "Resume Watch" and click on "Save"
  • When users close the player during watching a video, the video will start from the scene where they have left watching. This will work for single part content.

Note: This feature doesn't work for guest users as users need to login to your website/app to use this feature.

 

Enable Resume Watch for Multi-Part content.

When you enable "Resume Watch",  "Resume Watch from Last Seen"  will be automatically enabled. When users click on the "Play" button of a multi-part parent content, all the episodes will start playing one after the other. If a user lefts in the middle, then next time when he/she clicks on the "Play" button, it will start from the last scene of the episode where he/she has left watching.

Note:

  • Currently, this feature is only enabled for Modern & Revo Template.
  • To disable "Resume Watch from Last Seen", deselect the checkbox for it and click on "Save".

 

 

  • When the user clicks on the "Play" button of a multi-part content, all the episodes start playing automatically. When the user again clicks on the "Play" button after closing the player, the episode will start playing from the last scene.
