Non-AVI videos for hotspots?

Postby reneuend » Thu Dec 31, 2015 5:37 pm

I want to display a looping video on a hotspot when a frame opens, but I don't know how to do this unless I use the built-in option on the hotspot properties. AVIs are massive and I would love to replace them with a different format on hotspots.
Anyone?

I think if I knew how to load a video on a hotspot, then I could simulate a hotspot click when the frame opens, but how to add a video programmatically to a hotspot??

I have used .AVI for candle lights in Shadows II. But, yes, they are massive. One short small resolution file is almost 2MB.

I haven't tried WMV. It is smaller than AVI, but can AM reproduce it?
Stay a while and listen...

I tried exporting videos as WMV, but while they work from Windows, the video was just black inside AM. It appears that AM doesn't support a newer version of WMV, but I'm not sure.

I'll just use AVIs for hotspots until I have some time to experiment and hopefully find another way.
