A video control component for A-Frame. Demo [here] (https://oscarmarinmiro.github.io/aframe-video-controls)
It attaches to a video asset so you can play/pause the video (assuing it is projected on a plane or sphere) by looking and clicking on the 'play' icon or transport bar.
You can also press the 'space bar' or the arrow keys to control the video if you are in a 'desktop' computer
Feedback is needed and very welcome, specially regarding User Experience!!!
I'm working on the following features, but feel free to suggest via Github Issues:
- 'Flat' component if on Desktop (i.e: not in the 3D space)
- Test on iPhone and Vive (at the moment I tested this in Android, Cardboard and Oculus Rift DK2)
- Test on much bigger files
- Volume controls
- Another control to jump between different files so you can 'browse' different videos
- 'Auto hide feature': If x seconds have passed after last interaction with player, hide the controls and A-Frame cursor
You can play with a live demo [here] (https://oscarmarinmiro.github.io/aframe-video-controls)

Just include the component and put your video into the A-frame assets section.
Then just include an entity with the 'src' attribute 'pointing' to the video asset you want to control.
You can supply your own 'play' and 'pause' images for the player by including these lines into the assets of your scene:
<a-assets> <img id="video-play-image" src="img/play.png"> <img id="video-pause-image" src="img/pause.png"> ...
Otherwise, the default 'play' and 'pause' images (CDN-hosted) will be used.
Install and use by directly including the browser files:
This example projects a 360 video into a videosphere and attaches the controls to it.
