Is the video playback always on top (regardless of layering)?

Solved Victor Conesa 8 years ago

Hi all,

Is it possible to impose UI-elements on top of a video?

I've tried inserting a Youtube-video with the HTML-widget and a local-video with a local website (and the HTML website widget), but in both cases they cover all UI-elements even when these elements are in layers on top of the video. I noticed the same when using the Flash-widget (it is always on top). So bottomline all moving content is always on top.

I've read in a forum that this is how Justinmind works. Can somebody confirm this? Since this would make the tool useless for us (software development for TV Set top boxes). Which is a pity since on other levels it really addresses all our requirements.

It would also be convenient if more video-controls would be available from within the application (cf Proto.io).

Thank you in advance.

Hi David,

Unfortunately the HTML widget will be always placed on top of any other element.

However, I will add this feature request into our product backlog so the development team can take into account for future updates.

Sorry for any inconvenience.

A partial workaround is to use a movie converted to an animated gif and load it through the image-widget. But in this case you lose the audio of the video.


Hi Sonia,

thank you for your reply.
