I need to allow users (kids) to select and play a Vimeo video from a list of over 20 videos. The videos are not password protected on Vimeo.
The idea is that users enter a 'pass code' into a dialogue box, and this looks up and triggers a Vimeo video to play in a new scene. Ideally, once the video has played, users are returned to passcode entry form.
e.g. Video passcode = 'SecretFilm1' goes to plays https://vimeo.com/1234567890
Maybe this helps...
It's meant to work like a video game passcode. It's not meant for security. Since your project doesn't sound like that, this might be what you're looking for.
Thanks. I have an entry password working. Now I need to look up and play videos.
There's a lot of documentation out there...
This looks like the interesting part...
It's time to start controlling some videos. We've compiled a comprehensive reference of methods and events to make your dreams of absolute power a reality.
So, theoretically, it should just be a matter of plugging the passcode event into Vimeo's methods/events for playing videos. Although, I'm not seeing how the Video is changed. This is surprisingly more complicated than I thought.
I have to get going right now, but I think this problem might be a good candidate for a new Hype Template.
Did you solve the problem? I think there's an easy way to make this work.
Since you have the password system working, what if that just loads the correct scene. Then, it's just a matter of adding the typical Vimeo iFrame / embed HTML to the scene.
It's not a perfect solution, but a more advanced alternative probably involves a lot of coding.
Hi... yes, that's exactly what I have done. Thank you.
