Implementation of new control elements for reproducing streaming hypervideo
The article is related to the problem of developing software tools that allow to create virtual author's media content (for example, interactive manuals, the presentations, video digests, etc.), using various Internet resources, and to reproduce it in hypervideo mode. The implementation of the new version of the hypermedia player 'Media Guide' is considered. This version is able to support the interpretation of an extended set of control structures in the XML language. The means allowing to automate creation of video presentations (in particular video lectures) accompanied by slides are described. Also the possibility of setting in the control player the structure of various alternative sequences of actions is considered. In the article it is proposed in the future to realize the approach providing the possibility of dynamic modification of the player's controlling structures.
