Playing Videos

It's tough to select the right scenes for your project without playing the video. For this reason, the Album works closely with the Player to let you view and move through your video scenes.

To play your videos

1.
Do one of the following:

  • Double-click the scene you want to play.

  • The video immediately starts to play in the Player.

  • Click the scene you want to play.

The border around the video turns from white to blue. If you're in Comment View mode (see “Working with the Album's Views and Tools,” later in this chapter), the scene comments immediately to the right of the video are also highlighted. In addition, the initial frame of the scene appears in the Player (Figure 6.14).

Figure 6.14. To play any video file in the Album, double-click it, or click it once and click Play in the Player.


2.
Under the Player, click Play to start video playback and use the other controls to navigate through the video (Figure 6.15).

Figure 6.15. To move manually through the scenes, use the familiar VCR playback controls or the Player scrubber.


Playback shifts automatically from scene to scene when multiple scenes are present.

The progress bar, a white line underneath the thumbnail in each scene in the Album that fills as the Player progresses through the scene, represents the position of playback within each scene. The Player scrubber represents the position of playback within the entire video.
