Videos instead of images/text

Sep 2, 2012 at 10:57 AM

Hi,

Is there a way to use videos instead of images/text in AR apps? I was going through the "Getting started" guide, and also checked the samples, and theres nothing on using videos...

eg. scenario: when the app detects the marker, a video should start playing

Also, is there a way to use custom "images" instead of plain markers for detection? For example, when a user points at, say, a poster (eg: TGIF's poster), then the AR should do its magic...

 

Thanks :),

If you look at the Silverlight samples / videos you will actually see that there's video overlaid. However, that feature does not work in WP7 due to it's limitation that the camera preview can't be used together with a video.

You can create custom markers, but they need to be b/w and framed by a black square. Here's how to: http://slartoolkit.codeplex.com/documentation
