Welcome to Android's first augmented reality movie player! This is a much more fun way to watch videos more than a standard media player. See the world through your camera as the video content pops into your reality.
View any YouTube video, stream any of the available Premium Content Videos or play your very own movies saved on your Android. To use this app you need to hold the camera up to a target that the app recognizes and then it will display the videos on top of that. Unlike most other AR apps you don't need to print out a piece of paper to use this app. Simply hold the camera up to any one of the paper money targets the app knows. Many currencies are known - details are in the help screens. Or you can take a photo of any object near you and use that as a target. For custom targets, use a static object with good contrasting detail in a well lit space with as little background in the frame as possible. Aim the camera parallel to the surface.
The AR experience becomes even more lifelike by bringing the content of the video really into your world using the green screen effect, also known as chroma keying. Never heard of that? Remember the weather lady on TV and how she appears to be on some sunny beach or beautiful mountain while she's giving the weather forecast? By standing in front of a green (or sometimes blue) screen and avoiding wearing those colors on their person, the green color is replaced with the video footage of a scene and their image superimposed on top. This gives the illusion that they are somewhere they really are not. Watch the sample video of Gangnam Style's Psy dancing for an example.
This app gives you the same green screen ability! If you are watching a video with a background that is almost the same color shade then simply choose that color in the Chroma Key window and set it, and then viola! The background is rendered transparent and the rest of the video has the illusion of being there right with you. This works great for videos with people in them. You can hold your friends right in the palm of your hand!
The fun doesn't stop there. You can take screenshots of any AR scene you create and share it. For videos streamed online you can also share the video link so they can watch the same video. Sharing is available for a host of apps including Facebook, Twitter, e-mail, SMS/MMS, LINE, Google+, WhatsApp etc.
