|Video Count||How many videos are in the playlist|
|Source||The source of a video.|
Url - The source is a URL (This can be a redirect link if you want to change it without having to reupload)
Video Clip - The source is a video clip in the unity project
|URL (Appears if it is the selected source)||Where you set the url for the video|
|Video Clip (Appears if it is the selected source)||The video clip you want to set for the video|
|Aspect Ratio||The aspect ratio the video should adjusted to.|
|Playback Speed||How fast the playback of the video(s) should be|
RPC's are available via the SendRPC action
|Play||Owner||Plays the video player|
|PlayIndex||Owner||Plays the video at the given index of the playlist (starts from 0)|
|Pause||Owner||Pauses the video player|
|Stop||Owner||Stops the video player|
|Previous||Owner||Changes the playing video to the previous video in the playlist|
|Next||Owner||Changes the playing video to the next video in the playlist|
|Shuffle (Currently does nothing)||Owner||Shuffles the playlist|
|Clear||Owner||Clears the playlist|
|AddURL||Owner||Adds a URL to the playlist (see note)|
|SpeedUp||Owner||Speeds the video up by 0.1x|
|SpeedDown||Owner||Slow the video down by 0.1x|
Adding a URL will only work if a video clip is not present in the playlist. Trying to immediately play the video after adding a URL will likely not work, because the video takes time to load. Induce a delay either via a StateMachine or by using a second button press to allow some time for the URL to resolve and the video to load.
Community Member Owlboy has created a guide on how to use some of the more advanced features of VRC_SyncVideoPlayer, available here. Please note that the website may change at any time (as the guide is not maintained by VRChat), and that many of these features are experimental and may change in the future.
