MOV files can be used to make region and parcel-wide video players. The Video you see here is located in Outworldzfiles\Apache\htdocs\Video. You can add your own Video files there. A sample is TinkersFirstDance.mov.

You can play one video per parcel using your DreamGrid Apache web server. Apache must be enabled and running for this to work. You can divide up your land into small parcels and play different audio sounds in each parcelHelp

How does it work? It plays a special image you add to your parcel settings.

These are the steps to play Video files continually on your region or parcel.

1. In your viewer, go to the About Land Menu:

4. You need a unique texture not used before. This PNG file can be used. Right click and save it, and upload it to your viewer.

Video Image

Drag and drop the Audio.png file into the X window so it appears like this. You need to use the web URl for your grid, typically http://something.outworldz.net:80/Video/TinkersFirstDance.mov, where 'something' is your chosen URL. You can get this link in the Help menu in the first menu selection. Then change the port to whatever port you use for Apache, in Settings->Apache.

Video Player

Make a prim or find a hidden face on a prim. Click "Select Face", and choose one face only! Drag and drop the image onto one face only.
