Hi Designers,

 

Recently I was designing a webpage where I decided to go with multiple video to play automatically. But only the first video is playing in auto mode. Any solution for this?

Hi, I think currently it's not possible to play multiple videos at once (to be honest which makes sense to me) :

Ah I see. This might be a feature that's maybe going to be implemented, but as you know common UX understanding suggests users do not want to spend time in the interfaces that have "too much" going on in terms of animation, motion graphics etc everything is needed to be used with some caution. I think the best solution in this case would be playing one and usign static images for the rest of the videos, they can be played on demand in the prototype.

Insightfull. But you maybe taking about mobile UX wher I was talking about web immersive experience. Also the client is B2B so to show the context of the busines it was required to make the motion. Anyway thanks for the reply. 🙂 Hope this feature will be a roofshot. I think its a bug or something like that.

Yes this might be one of the "exceptional" use cases that requires multiple videos to be played at the same time. I don't think it's a bug, XD's video and lottie features are unique as far as I know in the whole UI/UX Design tools market, I think they want to proceed steadier in terms of performance, you want an option to perform efficiently, I think the video size and count limit is also there to make that sure, but I'm sure there are going to be updates as the feature's being developed further. Happy creating!

I am facing the same issue. It is while designing a video calling feature where multiple videos need to be played in 1 screen.

Not that I can find, and the answer that it's bad practice to have more than one video playing on a page is absolute rubbish. Just a poor excuse for Adobe's software not working as it should.

You are totally right, completely out of place answer, I even found it offensive, to be honest. Looking for a logical answer to an obvious bug with the tool and having someone telling you that you shouldn't be making what you are trying to make without any background of what the project is or what the creator is trying to achieve is misleading and condescending.

 

I'm trying to add different animations to play and loop at the same time for a portfolio project that I will be uploading directly from XD to Behance. Since XD doesn't support GIFs yet and lotties do not work well with images I need to use MP4 but then XD will only allow my preview to play one video at a time. 

 

Here is a link to the prototype:

Hi @Soumyadip@Van Alva and everyone, sorry if my answer sounded "offensive" and "out of place" but I was just telling my idea, I never meant what you should do and don't, not to mention even the most professional/famous companies'/products' sites that play multiple videos at once don't usually do that, not more than one in the same viewport/screen, but I said that there can be exceptional cases, I wasn't trying to lecture on UI/UX, usability or anything like that, just mentioning my own idea 🙂 And I also meant for a feature to be implemented, like in all solid products, it needs to be tested and to be made sure that it's going to work without any flaws as much as possible. As I see it playing multiple videos at the same time feature request is not one of the most popular feature requests also (31 votes since 24 Dec '21), so you might want to upvote if you haven't here: https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007-adobe-xd-feature-requests/suggestions/44606880-play-mult... 

I've just checked (and as @Rishabh_Tiwari's post suggests, you can even add multiple time triggers) you can make multiple lottie animations autoplay/loop at the same screen, I think this is the best solution for now, considering it's really easy to convert videos to lottie animations (YT channel of Lottie Animations has great tutorials if you haven't checked yet https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCrD8xvZzX7QqZC_KXSAchqA  and there's even an After Effects plugin for Lottie right) So I'd resolve it that way. Hope this helps!
