Video playback problem


Recommended Posts


I'm making nw.js application and want to use pixi.js as image and video rendering module.

The "image" part goes well, but i can't get the video playing...

Here's the simple code:

function (PIXI) {

    var module = {
        PIXI: PIXI,
        init: initRenderer,
        renderVideo: renderVideo

    function initRenderer(width, height) {
        var renderer = PIXI.autoDetectRenderer(width, height, {view: document.getElementById("canvas"), transparent: true}),
            stage = new PIXI.Container();

        module.width = width;
        module.height = height;
        module.loader = new PIXI.loaders.Loader();
        module.renderer = renderer;
        module.stage = stage;

    function animate() {

    function renderVideo(path) {
        if (!module.loader.resources[path]) {
            module.loader.once('complete', render);
        } else {

        function render() {
            var texture = PIXI.Texture.fromVideo(path),
                video = new PIXI.Sprite(texture);

            video.width = module.width;
            video.height = module.height;



    return {
        name: 'renderer',
        module: module

But after video is loaded, i get Texture and VideoBaseTexture width and height = 1 and nothing happens...

When i change

var texture = PIXI.Texture.fromVideo(path)


var texture = PIXI.Texture.fromVideo(module.loader.resources[path])

i get an error: Uncaught TypeError: source.addEventListener is not a function.

Seems like problem with html video element.

I tried change video file, but it didn't help at all.

Any thoughts what can be wrong?

Thanks and sorry for my english! :)
