FotoWeb transcodes and plays audio and video files in your archives.
To play a video, select the asset's thumbnail in the grid to open the Details page. Select Play in the preview to start playback.
Play / Pause buttons - Start or pause playback.
Volume control - Controls the output volume. Use the system control panel to choose between different speakers on your computer.
Playback speed - Controls the playback speed. Speeds can be adjusted from 0,25x to 16x
Reverse playback - Starts reverse playback from the current position in the clip. To control the speed of the reverse playback, set the speed first.
Rotate video - Rotates the video on the screen. The original video file will not be affected - this is merely a practical feature.
Skip frames - Use these controls to skip 1 or 5 frames forward or backward in the clip.
Repeat - Repeats the clip from the start when it's finished playing. It will keep playing until you manually stop it.
Snapshot - Stores the current frame locally in .png format.
Full screen - Toggle full-screen mode. Playback controls will be shown below the video window. Press Escape to cancel full-screen mode.
Show/hide filters - Toggle color filters. These can be used to adjust hue/saturation, brightness and contrast, and color inversion to change the clip's appearance. A frame from the resulting clip can then be stored locally using the Snapshot function.
Use filters to alter the hue and saturation, the brightness and contrast, and invert colors in the video clip. The original video file is not affected - these are temporary effects that can be used, for example, to export a color-adjusted frame using the Snapshot function.
Use the Original/Modified toggle to see the clip before and after adjusting colors.
Key frame navigation
Below the playback controls are key frames that can be used to quickly jump to a particular section of the video clip. Time coding is displayed for convenience.
A certain amount of bandwidth is required for smooth video playback. We recommend having no less than a 6 Mbit connection.
