difference between pause and stop the ofVideoPlayer?


maybe i am missing something… but … whats the difference between pausing and stoping the ofVideoPlayer? i am on linux. thanks


Pausing and stopping are slightly platform dependent.
On linux pause and stop are doing the same thing, while the quicktime player has different functionality for pause and stop.

If I remember correctly on linux using certain video file types I had problems pausing then unpausing in a clean way. This is a problem with the underlying GStreamer framework which hopefully will be fixed in later versions.

Perhaps if you give an example of what you are trying to do that might make things clearer.

i am just testing the functionality, nothing specific really
