Is roVideoPlayer Not Depreciated?

Thu Feb 07, 2019 8:03 am

So I am considering integrating some video playback within my games. The roVideoPlayer component was labeled as depreciated for a while however the docs no longer say that. Additionally, I believe roVideoPlayer is used for displaying ads, so it's been my suspicion for some time that it wouldn't actually get removed. Clarification would be much appreciated.

Thanks
Austin

roVideoPlayer and roVideoPlayerEvent became, uh, un-deprecated i believe.
Note these are pure video play, no UI widgets. You should be fine using that in a game together with a roScreen.

Indeed, RAF uses roVideoPlayer to display ads in SDK1 apps (incl. games). In most RSG apps, a Video node is used for the ads.

Perfect, that's great to know, yes I would be using it along with roScreen.

Thanks :)
