Adding video support

Postby Candle » Wed Nov 28, 2007 5:18 am

I think you could add video support to the iPhone as I see it can play the H.264 video.

Video

Thanks.

Unfortunately, when you play a video (applies to sounds as well), the Safari browser is temporarily closed and the media player pops up full screen, with Play/Stop buttons, etc., so it is really not seamless at all. It could be ok for a couple of long videos, but not to make your game look animated.

I see, I was going to put a video in the frame of the fireplace.
I have a few more like a waterfall etc i wanted to use.
But I can convert them to a gif from avi.
Just look better as a video.
