FileMaker / HTML / JS Video Training Demo – YouTube

If you a FileMaker developer and aren’t studying html/css/js, you’re falling behind.  iSolutions and Chris Ippolite shortens the learning curve…

In this demo we show an example of using JavaScript to allow us to control the video playing in a web viewer and to execute certain FileMaker script depending on whether the user pauses or resumes a video. We wanted to be able to remove the ability to fast forward through the video to make sure the user watches the video assigned to them.
We used a FMP URL to run a script when they pause, to create a log record saving the frame where they paused so when they come back later they can pick up where they left off. Also, we use an FMP URL to run a script when the last frame of the video has been viewed, which lets us set the “Completed” flag on the video. This way, the user can only show a video completed if they actually watch it in its entirety.

For more details:

We ‘localized’ the javascript, API Code and javascript function and reference each within the HTML calc we use in the web viewer. The sample video we show is on a web server but could be embedded on the device.
