AR Video: Play Videos Over Augmented Reality QR Codes


AR Code Tech | 06/11/2023 |


Augmented Reality is a technology that allows digital content to be displayed in the real world. Currently, AR is mainly accessed through smartphones, but the introduction of augmented reality glasses in 2023 has expanded its reach.

AR devices typically display 3D models, games, or animations that are superimposed onto the real world. However, traditional media content such as text, images, and videos can also be displayed using AR.

Augmented Reality Videos

In 2023, some of the most popular applications of Augmented Reality were games and social media filters. The growing interest in the Metaverse – a trend that gained momentum after Mark Zuckerberg announced Facebook Meta's AR strategy – has led individuals and businesses to increasingly focus on Augmented Reality technologies.

Today, more people and businesses are recognizing the potential of 2D content in AR. The notion that displaying a video on a phone screen is sufficient has evolved, and AR Videos are now seen as a necessary component for augmented reality glasses.

AR Videos on smartphones offer significant benefits:

  • AR provides an enjoyable and novel way to view videos.
  • They are ideal for advertising, as viewers are more likely to watch AR videos repeatedly.
  • AR experiences can be easily shared through a simple code.
  • With AR Code, videos can be anchored to a specific surface such as product packaging, showcases, or screens, and users can move around to interact with the content.

AR Videos: No App Required

AR Videos can be viewed without an app on any smartphone or tablet with an operating system corresponding to the following versions: Android 4.4 and later, iOS 11.0 and later. This is made possible by WebAR technology, which utilizes AR.js, THREE.js, and A-Frame libraries to create an augmented reality video experience using a marker associated with the AR Code.

The AR.js and A-Frame frameworks are popular tools for creating virtual reality experiences, and three.js is a 3D graphics library for WebGL content.

The video is rendered floating above the augmented reality QR Code and can be seen by pointing a smartphone at it.

The AR Code cloud manages the video stream, optimizing it for .mp4 and .mov file formats. When you upload video files, they are analyzed, compressed, and converted to the optimal size and resolution for augmented reality.
