Faktion – Cross-Platform Interaction

Use video timeline to trigger a phone call

Working with regular YouTube videos, the webpage watches the video timeline and uses it to trigger phone calls and text messages. Then, in response to your SMS the video is changed - creating a familiar "choose your own adventure" story from the different perspectives of the man and woman in the story.


This demonstration is designed to be run on a desktop computer although a version will run on tablets too.

Video events trigger Conducttr to make phone calls and send SMS. SMS replies sent to Conducttr cause the YouTube videos to change depending on the choices made by the audience.

You can grab the code for this demonstration at the SkunkWrx community area.
