This is a new module I have been working on. It allows you to play a video file (mp4, webm, mkv) on your magic mirror from any device on the network. A video object is built inside the module, no iframe is used. The best position is bottom left, although the position and size depends upon the user. The player has nice rounded and shadow borders which adds a nice aesthetic sense to the overall MM. The player then waits for the user to browse to the advertised URL and load a video/movie. On the advertised URL, a nice player awaits for the user to select the video file along with some controls such as Play/Pause, Volume, Mute, Subtitles.
This model is utilizing video streaming over HTTP, so the whole file is not read at once but in chunks as per the requirement. The module is built with error handling procedures. Beside the core modules, this module uses 4 other dependencies mentioned in the package file.
