Interactive Videos / Advanced Interactive Videos

Interactive Videos are Clips or Bumpers that display clickable links during video playback. Useful to link your video with other Websites, online store, etc. You can specify as many as you want (per video) as well as the "in" and "out" points.
"Advanced Interactive Videos": The "Advanced Interactive Videos" extension, enhances this feature by allowing to use banner images (GIF, JPG, PNG, SWF) instead of plain text links.

NOTE: Interactive videos won´t work on the iPhone/iPod extension.

In order to display a banner image (GIF, JPG, PNG, SWF) instead of a text title, enter the URL of the file in the "Link Title" field. The URL must be enclosed between the tags: [img] and [/img].
Example: [img][/img].
If you do not enter the URL between those tags, then the URL will be displayed as the title.
Specifying banner size.
The dafault banner size is 400px x 45px; however, from Simple Web TV 1.4 it is possible to specify width and height for the banner in the first [img] tag, like this: [img:widthxheight]. If you do not specify width and height, the dafault size will be used.
Example: [img:468x60][/img].
5) Enter the "URL": the web address that will open when clicking the link title.
NOTE: the URL must ALWAYS start with http://
