I never implemented video on mobile, never needed, but now a client wants to create an app that will feature videos, and I need to be certain that is technically viable.
I've been reading about this topic and I got a few doubts about it, for what I understand the VideoTexture feature would solve/help with this, but is not ready for mobile yet, not even in the beta 16 AFAIK.
So, what I'd like to know is, what is the current situation of playing video on mobile?.
What I know for this project is:
- it will need to run in iPad 2
- the videos will be presented in fullscreen, with a button or 2 to control the display.
For what I've read, displaying the video using StageVideo and on top of it using native display list controls would do the trick, since the video is being shown behind of the Starling layer (which cannot have transparency), and behind the native display list.
Is this feasible to do?, or will I run into performance/memory problems?.
Any experience is welcome!.
