Using "Poster" to display image when the player first loads?

Sep 24, 2010 at 2:25 AM

Hi there,

I noticed that there's an image called "Poster" in the PlayerRoot and a property called "IsPosterVisible", based on this old thread, I'm guessing that this is to show a custom image, when the player first loads. How do use this functionality, I can't find an obvious way of setting the source and making it visible.

Any help with this would be appreciated.

Ok sorry for the somewhat premature post, after some digging around in the source, I worked it out.

For anyone else who might be interested in this.

Basically, if you have "AutoPlay" set to false, the image specified in the "ThumbSource" of the current/selected "PlaylistItem", will be used as the "Poster". It is shown when the "PlaylistItem" first is loaded, and is hidden once the video starts playing.
