DMS 2 Rev Slider / Embedding Videos in General DMS2


Question

Posted · Report post

Dear PageLines Forum,

So I have here a video which i've embedded from the FTP server into the RevSlider:

http://www.screencast.com/t/IkoNVhWJ6

I would like to change the black bars to either white or a different color, anything not black.  How would I go about doing this?  Another, more complicated, request that I have is to be able to time the transition from the video to the RevSlider (or other slides if video is to stay inside RevSlider).

I want it so that the video automatically plays upon page-load, and continues to play.  Once it is finished playing it will fade away and transition to the slider.  So I want the video to play all the way through once, and then never come back again unless the page is revisted/refreshed and then transition to the RevSlider.  I understand that this may be more difficult and I could just keep it in the slider and let people do as they please, but this would really make me happy!

Thank you all for your time and advice

- Peter

Hi Peter

 

We'd need a live link to the page so we could see where the color was coming from in the source code to provide you with how to tackle that part.

 

The issue with the video vanishing and not coming back isn't going to be easy, its not something you'll be able to do from within the DMS revsliders standard options unfortunately. It could be possible using Revsliders manually code which you can find at - http://www.orbis-ingenieria.com/code/documentation/documentation.html but would be outside of our immediate support spectrum. The code from the revslider docs would need to be added inside the 'slide extra captions' box to use this option. http://screencast.com/t/lOlEqr4u

 

Another way you could do something similar without having to use the video in the slider would be to place the video inside a modal which appears on the first page load, once closed the slider below continues as normal and the video never appears again then unless the page is refreshed triggering the modal again.

Here's a link to my site: http://www.talipayments.com

I definitely like the idea of using a modal, though.  However, the only Modal plug-in I see that automatically pops up on page load is $14.99. Would there be a free version to this anywhere?  Otherwise I guess i'll have to bite the bullet for the time being haha.  As for manually adding the RevSlider code, do you mean literally copy/paste everything from the RevSlider site into the 'extra captions' text box?  And then make my adjustments?  Thanks again for all of your help, I really appreciate it!

edit: I just noticed that the video autoplays on the site.  This is fine, although i'm wondering why it's autoplaying when auto-play is set to 'false' in the extra captions box.  What is bothering though is the fact that the video continues playing whether it's on the slide or not.  Is this something that can be changed or is it another limitation to DMS' RevSlider without using a manually implemented RevSlider. Here's my code for the extra captions box:

 

<div class="caption fade fullscreenvideo tp-caption start" data-autoplay="false" data-x="0" data-y="0" data-speed="500" data-start="10" data-easing="easeOutBack">

<iframe width="100%" height="100%" src="http://talipayments.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/04/MVideo1.mp4" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen="" id="iframe444" class="HasListener" style="width: 0px; height: 0px;"></iframe>

</div>
