This post explains how to configure video_view block (the actual video player block) to render different data specific to TV series. In order to find this block please go to Website UI -> Pages -> View Video page -> video_view. Open for editing to see its template code and configuration parameters.

NOTE: the code is valid for video_view block only and can't be put into other templates.

 

How to render basic TV series / TV season info

Rendering basic data is quite simple as all information is selected by default inside video_view block.

TV series:

ID: {{$data.dvd_group.dvd_group_id}}
Title: {{$data.dvd_group.title}}
URL: {{$data.dvd_group.view_page_url}}
Cover 1: {{if $data.dvd_group.cover1}}{{$data.dvd_group.base_files_url}}/{{$data.dvd_group.cover1}}{{/if}}
Cover 2: {{if $data.dvd_group.cover2}}{{$data.dvd_group.base_files_url}}/{{$data.dvd_group.cover2}}{{/if}}

 

TV season:

ID: {{$data.dvd.dvd_id}}
Title: {{$data.dvd.title}}
URL: {{$data.dvd.view_page_url}}
Cover 1 front: {{if $data.dvd.cover1_front}}{{$data.dvd.base_files_url}}/{{$data.dvd.cover1_front}}{{/if}}
Cover 1 back: {{if $data.dvd.cover1_back}}{{$data.dvd.base_files_url}}/{{$data.dvd.cover1_back}}{{/if}}
Cover 2 front: {{if $data.dvd.cover2_front}}{{$data.dvd.base_files_url}}/{{$data.dvd.cover2_front}}{{/if}}
Cover 2 back: {{if $data.dvd.cover2_back}}{{$data.dvd.base_files_url}}/{{$data.dvd.cover2_back}}{{/if}}

 

How to configure player to automatically redirect to the next video inside a TV season

Locate the following line in template code:

kt_player('kt_player', '{{$config.project_url}}/player/kt_player.swf?v={{$config.project_version}}', '100%', '100%', flashvars);

 

Change it to the following:

var player_obj = kt_player('kt_player', '{{$config.project_url}}/player/kt_player.swf?v={{$config.project_version}}', '100%', '100%', flashvars);
{{if $data.dvd.dvd_id>0}}
   {{strip}}
       {{query_kvs table="`$config.tables_prefix`videos" select="list" where_dvd_id=$data.dvd.dvd_id sort_by="dvd_sort_id asc" assign="videos"}}
       {{assign var="next_video_url" value=""}}
       {{assign var="next_video_title" value=""}}
       {{assign var="current_video_url" value=""}}
       {{foreach from=$videos item="item"}}
           {{if !$next_video_url && $current_video_url}}{{assign var="next_video_url" value=$item.view_page_url}}{{assign var="next_video_title" value=$item.title}}{{/if}}
           {{if $item.video_id==$data.video_id}}{{assign var="current_video_url" value=$item.view_page_url}}{{/if}}
       {{/foreach}}
   {{/strip}}
   {{if $next_video_url}}
       player_obj.listen('ktVideoFinished', function() {
           // use {{$next_video_title}} variable for title if you need
           window.location = '{{$next_video_url}}';
       });
   {{/if}}
{{/if}}

NOTE: inside ktVideoFinished callback you may want to add some timer ticking and GUI notification that user will be redirected to a new video page in 3...2...1... This is not covered by this post, use some JS code to render the needed GUI.
