How does it work?

The Video & Audio Proof Viewer is designed to look and feel exactly the same as the standard Proof Viewer, with a few different features.

Ziflow Viewer video and audio tools
  1. Volume & mute - this button allows you to increase or decrease the sound. This button can also be used for muting the sound.

  2. Timer and time format - the first set of numbers shows the time elapsed, followed by the total length of the video. You can also decide in what format the timer should be displayed: Time, TimeCode, and Frames.

  3. Range-based comments - if you need to add a comment that refers to some part of the audio/video file you can adjust the starting and ending point of the comment by moving comment indicators. Indicators' range timeline will be additionally added next to the comment. Every comment (with or without range added) will show a timestamp beneath the video progress bar. Every comment timestamp shows the avatar or initials of the person who added the comment.

  4. Play/Pause & Skip to the next/previous frame - The play/pause button allows you to start and stop the video. Alternatively, you can hit the space bar, and it will work the same as clicking the play/pause button.
    Left and right arrows let skip a video to the next/previous frame.

  5. Playback speed - click this button in order to increase or decrease video speed.

  6. Subtitles - if subtitles were added during proof creation this button will let reviewers switch them on/off during video playback.

  7. Safe zones (Business & Enterprise feature only) - this lets you see how the video will look with different safe areas displayed on the video image.

  8. Loop - this button allows you to put a video on a loop, and it will start the video automatically once it reaches the end.

  9. Full-screen mode - opens a video in full-screen mode.
