Player Controller question

Post by sritcp » Fri Jun 14, 2019 7:31 pm

I created a player, set the source to a local .mp4 video file, and played. (LC 9.0.2 Indy, Mac 10.14.4)

There are two little half-arrow icons at the right hand edge of the Controller which I assumed were Rewind and Fast-forward (to take you to an earlier or later time point) but they seemed to permanently increase the playrate. That is, even after I hold and release the Fast-forward button, the video continues to play at the higher speed. There seems no way to get back to normal speed (other than by script, setting “the playrate of player 1 to 1”). The same thing happens to the Rewind button, where the video continues to play in reverse at a fast speed. This is not good for a user who may inadvertently press and hold these buttons.

Is this the way the Controller is supposed to work or is this a bug? Is there a way to script the individual icons/buttons on the Controller (e.g., not show the Rewind, Fast-forward buttons)?

Thanks,
Sri

Hi Sri,

confirmed, this is a bug! Could you please report it? Thanks.

SHIFT-clicking on these arrows will shows a little scrollbar where you can set the speed for forward and backwards playback.

And the arrows should ONLY play backwards and forward AS LONG as you press them.
