Each task can include an image, video clip and link to a web page. Go to the “Media” tab in the task’s edit screen to add media. Media is shown when a task is opened inside the app.

Images are downloaded to the device at the start of a new game (so good internet connection is needed), videos and web pages are streamed directly from the internet when media is opened!

Image

One image can be added to every task. You can use either classical image format (JPG, PNG, etc.) or animated image (GIF). Read more about how to use GIFs in your task.

To add image, just upload it from your computer. Keep the photos small, so they perform better in mobile devices.

If you are hosting the photo already somewhere on the internet, you can just insert an image via URL.  Make sure it is the real web link to the actual image file (ends in .png, .jpg, etc.). Again, smaller images perform better when download speed of mobile devices is slow.

Photo overlay

Now it is possible to use photo overlay in photo task. Photo overlay is a picture displayed on the camera screen while shooting a photo. You can change this image’s transparency in camera mode (with the help of slider). You can use a photo overlay for fun photo hunts where people have to take the exact same picture as shown on the image and at the same location.

To add a photo overlay, open photo task for editing or create a new one, go to the „Media“ tab and upload an image. Save and you are ready to go. Image is added as media it will be shown while shooting a photo as an overlay on the camera’s screen. The image will be uploaded into the results without the overlay. This feature works only with photo task.

Augmented Photo

The augmented base photo will be displayed for the players in the camera view so they can take the picture combining it with real-life objects.

When you use the augmented photo task type then an added image needs to be in PNG format and have transparent areas and have a 4:3 ratio.

The images have to have aspect ratio 4:3- for example 1200 x 900 pixels. Crop any images you want to use, accordingly!

NB! iPhone models will not turn augmented base photos when the screen is turned into landscape mode. Also, when using a front-facing camera (selfie mode) iOS models will produce a mirrored image so that what you see on the screen matches your face.

Video

Youtube video

One Youtube video can be added to each task.  Use the link that is meant for Sharing from Youtube.

Should look like this  https://youtu.be/”clipID”. Where “clipID is the specific ID to your video.

Paste a link to Youtube Video section. Videos are streamed directly from Youtube servers when the video is opened.  Be careful when using videos in areas with a weak connection.

Vimeo videos

Alternatively, you can use Vimeo video service to show videos within Loquiz application. Use the Vimeo sharing URL and add that to the Task Edit screen of the respective task.

Background audio

Task creator to choose what sound is played when the task opens. It does not matter what type of task it is or by what means it is opened. There is no additional action needed by the player. Player also does not have the ability to stop the sound or replay it. Read more about how to use Background audio.
