Breakroom Video Player
The perfect tool for presentations, training videos, or sharing fun moments with colleagues. Read on for more information about installing and setting up the Breakroom video player.
The Breakroom Video Player allows you to stream live or pre-recorded video into your regions. Our platform supports many common video formats, such as MP4, HLS, and YouTube videos.
In your inventory, you'll see the video player represented by this icon:
If a YouTube video is DRM-controlled or monetized, you will not be able to stream it through the Breakroom Video Player. Please be aware that YouTube may automatically apply DRM restrictions to a video if it detects the presence of copyrighted materials (such as background music). If the video you want to use is DRM-controlled or monetized, you may still be able to play it using the Breakroom Web Browser. Please note that playing a video on the web browser object offers a different experience, and that Breakroom cannot track video analytics through the web browser object.
The Breakroom Video Player control panel is only accessible to the object owner and Region Administrators. To access it, click on the gear icon in the bottom control bar.
The control panel allows you to select the video you want to play and configure its playback settings. You can also upload a static splash screen that will be displayed whenever the video is not currently active.

Uploading a customized splash screen for each video player you set out can drive end user engagement and create an atmosphere of interactivity and user autonomy. Alternatively, you can use dormant video players to display event branding or informational signage when they're not actively in use.

The Breakroom Video Player is equipped with an invisible collider that extends out in front of the screen. If the "Auto Play" option is enabled, the video will automatically begin to play when a user walks into this collider. Likewise, the video will stop when the user exits the collider.
The Breakroom Video Player transmits usage analytics to Breakroom's advanced analytics panel, reporting when a user plays a video. If you have multiple screens equipped throughout your world, advanced analytics will also tell you which videos are being played. Please contact our Customer Success Team for more information.
