Playlist with two video content doesn't play continuously

Apr 26, 2012 at 7:37 AM

When I play a playlist with two video content, they aren't play continuously, in fact between the first and second I see a black frame for few millisecond (but you can see it very well), but it isn't good for my own requirements. How could I solve this issue that I'm encountering? Is there a way to anticipate the caching for the second content before the first content is finished? I have saw that I haven't this issue between the video content and a pre or mid roll adv, and I'd like to obtain the same behavior between two video content in a playlist.

Thank you in advance for your help and kind regards,

One way of doing that i think, would be to have to player instances, and load clip number two in the second player with autoplay off, so that it can start buffering and be ready to play. This could have performance implications however. Also remember to check if the video content actually fades to black at the end or the beginning, as that is not uncommon, and fixing that would likely help as well.

The best way will be to use Composite Manifest. You can build Composite manifest using the tool "Microsoft Media Platform Video Editor". http://archive.msdn.microsoft.com/VideoEditor

You can look at the demo here: http://videoeditor.cloudapp.net

Hi,

thank you for the suggestion. It's just what I done a week ago, and it works!!

Microsoft Media Platform Video Editor has still some problems but I could done the job! For example if you add two videos in their interely, the second clip is without audio (without tag c) and the manifest doesn't play, so you have to manually modify the manifest to add the missed tags...

Thanks again and kind regards,

Thank you for updating!

If you have few minutes, could you please post the error details on Video Editor Page? I think they are coming up with next version in this month and they may fix it.
