Is there a way to control video from the main timeline?

My end goal would be for the user to control a single video and it's position based on buttons. Essentially interactive video.

So the video automatically plays, then pauses where a pause timeline action is placed. At this point 4 buttons appear. Depending on what button is pressed, the video will resume playing from different points on the timeline. Also a looping section while waiting for the user to click a button would be amazing.

I've been looking for a day without much joy.

If anyone has any advice or clue where to look, I would be very grateful.

Thanks all!

I should add...the video maybe relatively long (3-4 mins). Else I would have looked into individual frames, but compressed video will most likely be the only viable option.

video and timelines run independly in Hype. no sync.

@Daniel did some guide on it a time ago: Sync Timelines to Video & Audio in Tumult Hype

as the title say it's syncing timelines to video which would be the best approach.

If you are just jumping from point to point then you likely do not need to sync video.

Using JavaScript, you just need to set the videos current time ( position) and continue play

The may be a little bit more to do in you case but to get a quick idea
