How to add a preview picture to the MoviePlayer on desktop apps

Probably there is an easy solution, but I couldn’t find anything on the web.

I have implemented a locally stored video in my desktop app. The video runs fine, but before starting the video the user sees just a black rectangle.

Is there a way to add a preview picture like at vimeo or youtube? Or do I have to place an ImageWell or Canvas on top of the video and remove it, when the user clicks on it?

Thanks for any help.


You could use a Canvas or ImageWell. When the user clicks on it, hide that control then make the MoviePlayer visible.

Ok, thanks, I’ll try that.
