You probably already know how to add a video. If not, you can find out about it in this article: Sharing and editing content at your rooms (images, videos, text&links)

Action bar

To see the Action bar, just click on the video frameezgif.com-gif-maker.gif

Actions in the Action bar work for video in the same way as other objects, but the video has more settings. They are only available to administrators and hosts even if a guest adds the video.

You can turn on Room-wide sound in the video settings and set the starting volume value (we recommend that you set it to no more than 5%).

Features of video playback

All videos have a control panel. However, only administrators, hosts, and the one who added this video can interact with it.

For all participants in the room, the video is synchronized, and everyone sees it simultaneously. Regardless of when exactly the person entered this room.

If the administrator stops the video, it will stop for everyone. If you rewind, it will rewind for everyone.

But each participant can adjust the volume for himself.

When the video ends, it will start over, regardless of whether it stammered or not.

 

To learn more about Synchronization for video elements, please take a look at this video:

 

 

Livestream

In fact, for live streams, everything works the same as for video. The only difference is that they have a slightly confusing timeline. If you have any difficulties with livestream playback - the simplest solution is to refresh the page or re-enter the room. If this does not help, contact support.

 

Please note

that each video may have restrictions on adding to third-party platforms, like a SpatialChat. 

  • Vimeo: the official documentation says, "Our player SDK enables you to interact with embedded Vimeo players through the code in your web page." Therefore, you can add videos with Vimeo that are not restricted from embedding (user can set it in the video settings, video can be restricted or disabled/enabled on certain domains). You can also add any live stream videos. There are no restrictions from SpatialChat's side.
  • YouTube: you can add any video or live stream except private videos, 18+ videos, or videos with restrictions on embedding. If you add a link to a playlist, only the first video will be played in your Space.
  • Twitch: you can add any Livestream but not the Clips. The restriction on clips is on SpatialChat's side for technical reasons.
