NoveltyML reference > Objects >Video


An object that displays the content of a video channel.

You do not load video files in the same way you would a Texture for an Image. Videos are loaded by the content user later in Novelty; via an action or a script. The video will play in one of three channels. This means you can have up to three videos playing simultaneously and you can have as many Video objects on screen at one time as you want.
