I'm a willing-to-learn jitter newbie. I'm am building an app that is going to be the digital version of a vinyl record. ...And I'm working on a tight deadline, so sorry for asking stuff I probably eventually could work out on my own...
There is produced video material for the entire length of the album, and the app should therefore function as a movie player with a few extra functionalities (full screen view (of the app, not just the video), CD player-like UI, tracklist from which you can choose to listen to a song + links to artist and label sites).
The video material exists both as a full length .mov clip and as videos for the individual songs but in order to lessen the amount of data I'd like to use either the full length clip or the individual clips, not both.
There'll be both a pc and a mac version, so no mac-only objects or similar should be used.
- Is it possible to assign time-codes to the clip and use connect them to the UI.
- Or would it be wiser to use the individual videos to minimize buffering?
- Umenu for the tracklist? Or is there a menu object that I'm not aware of that doesn't work as a drop down but has a full visual overview of all menu items?
- anything besides the need of quicktime that I should be aware of when writing a read-me file for the users?
Any help with all aspects will be deeply appreciated and I'll credit everyone helping out as a co-developer or similar on my various social media platforms if that has any interest.
