Please consider, that this feature is currently only available in a Beta version. Due to the fact that a special data model is used for the use and appearance of such videos within the WebOffice core client, this feature has to be considered in a project context.

Videos

The videos of an inspection are linked with a special search result. When you identify or select the appropriate video symbology in your map window, a button appears on the left side of the search result (like the buttons for the integration of external applications).

After clicking the appropriate button, a new window appears which can be used as a player for the video. There you also have a special menu for your interactions:

1 - Play / Stop: The Play-Button can be used to start the video. After the video was started, the Play-Button switches to the Stop-Button, which can be used to stop the video at any point.

2 - Switch to image: After stopping the video it is possible to switch to the nearest panorama image.

3 - Timeslider: By using the appropriate timeslider it is possible to switch to a special point of time in the video. After clicking this button, the respective menu for the panoramas will be available.

If a special data model is available, it is also possible to display distance information in the video. For fine-tuned control in the video, two control elements are provided on both sides of the video window. This allows the user to jump back and forth in the video frame by frame.

If several videos are available per route section (e.g. videos from front and side cameras), it is possible to switch between the videos of the cameras by jumping to the same frame in the video as in the  video loaded previously. For switching the videos there are icons available in the video window (when video is stopped). Please note that all videos of a route section have to have the same video length. Furthermore, every route section has to have the same number of videos available.
