What can S3Media Stream™ Do for You?
1.) Serve video and audio to your visitors without using any code.
2.) Visitors can jump ahead within a video or audio without the need to wait for it to download.
3.) You can now divide a long video into chapters without the need to break up the video itself. This way, you have the option of serving the video piecemeal to your visitors. Same goes for audio.
4.) Total download weight (megabytes) no longer matters because only the part that is actually viewed is charged to you in bandwidth usage. With progressive download you pay it all, so S3 CloudFront, although it adds to the bill, will compensate in the way streaming works.
5.) HD switch gives you the option to set a low- and high resolution video for streaming. That way, you serve a low resolution version in the page, while switching automatically to High definition video when played full screen, making sure quality remains impeccable. If the connection of the visitor cannot handle HD, they can switch to low resolution manually.

In this video tutorial we show you how to set permissions for your audio and video on S3 Amazon and/or CloudFront. However, you can set permissions for any file you like. You need an application to do that and we recommend using CloudBerry S3 Explorer as it is the most versatile application at this time of writing. The application is freeware and you can download it here.

TimedText is quite simple. It is a straightforward XML file and it has the begin time, end time and the sentence to display. These are enclosed by a paragraph tag (HTML) per subtitle line. Below you see an example of a subtitling with the video below it.

Below you can see the skin elements of of the control bar. As you can see, they consist of small images which you can easily change. The best way to start a skin is by copying an existing one. In the installation zip (s3mediapro.zip) is a folder called: skins and in that folder is a sub folder called Beelden. I used that one as a basis for Polished Metal, included in this module.
