Chapter 19. Using Xtras > Including Xtras with Projectors

Including Xtras with Projectors

If you use Xtras (other than tool Xtras) to create a movie, the members of your audience must have the same Xtras available on their computer in order to view the movie. Therefore, if you distribute your movie by means of a projector file, you must include not only the movie itself, but also all the Xtras needed to view the movie. (See Chapter 16, “Creating a Projector.”)

There are two approaches to including Xtras with a projector: You can embed the Xtras directly into the movie that will be contained in the projector, or you can include a separate Xtras folder alongside the projector. The advantage of embedding Xtras into your movie is that the user gets one, self-sufficient file, which makes things easier. The advantage of including a separate Xtras folder alongside the projector is that the movie starts more quickly, because the projector file doesn’t have to unpack the Xtras before playing the movie.
