Hi I work for an advertising agency and I’m looking to start using hype instead of adobe edge/flash/dreamweaver as a tool to create expandable banners. I am unsure about how to set up a file as an expandable banner. I have created a banner using two scenes, one of each size however doing this does not allow the larger scene to takeover the page on the host’s sites. Instead all content is contained with the host sites iframe container. Is there a technique to set up a file correctly as an expandable file or do I need to supply two separate html files?
Thank you for your help.
Do you know if it is possible to embed a vimeo or youtube to a hype
timeline and have it auto play from it’s start one it gets to a specific
frame on the hype timeline?
Is this related to expanding banners?
To work with videos like this, you’ll need to use either Youtube or Vimeo API – they have libraries built for controlling video playback this way:
Here is a post I did a while back on syncing youtube and vimeo videos.
You’ll be able to see how I added media element and / or the API for the respective videos into Hype.
This should help.
Thank you for your time I’m still a little lost. I have an expandable banner that needs to trigger a vimeo video once clicked on. Also the video needs to stop once the close button is clicked…
How lost are you?
