Once a user selects an asset from the worklist (Asset list), Mediabank automatically loads a proxy (copy) of the media file (asset) into the media player.
Press the play/pause button at the left bottom of the mediaplayer window or use the navigation controls in the navigation module below the player to view the media player's media content.
This article focuses on the mediaplayer only. The navigation module is described in a separate article, located here: Navigation module.
The Media player is frame accurate. This accuracy enables the user to view the media clip frame-by-frame.
The frame-by-frame functionality is beneficial when using annotations in the Review & Approval and Compliance application.
The same player in all every Mediabank applications
The mediaplayer behavior is consistent throughout the mediabank applications, with a minor difference in the overlays. The overlays adapt to the content loaded into the player. The example overlay below is affected by the content and includes LTC time only. An overlay used in a soccer game could include an additional match time in mm:ss.
The below text describes the Mediaplayer controls, referenced by the white text inside the player window from the above image.
The player bar embedded in the player window consists of the play/pause button followed by the volume button, succeeded by a graphical view of the clip's progress. It is possible to drag the white dot in the progress bar to the left or right to navigate the clip. The numbers (-0:39) indicate the remaining time in mm:ss.
If the loaded asset contains (3D/VR) virtual reality functions, the VR symbol will appear. Click the VR icon to view in VR mode. You may need additional equipment to utilize the media clip.
Adjust the player speed by clicking on the 1x icon. The available speeds are 0,5-2-3-4 times in addition to the normal speed. The next icon represents the toggle switch, allowing the user to view the media content in standard or full-size mode. It is also possible to double-click inside the mediaplayer window to toggle between normal and full-size mode.
And finally, the last switch indicated by a square box enables the "picture-in-Picture" mode. It allows the user to drag the picture frame to an external monitor.
It is also possible to load the previous or next asset from the asset list (worklist) by clicking on the "Buttons" on each side of the mediaplayer frame, eliminating the need to navigate the asset list.
