Using the AVON Player

The AVON video player has two main components, the top menu (in yellow) and the bottom bar (in blue).  Using these tools will help you get as much information as possible about the videos that you may be viewing. AVON video player with top and bottom bars highlighted

The Top Bar

This menu has six options:

  • Fullscreen: Default setting for this player, shows the video taking up the full screen of the browser.
  • Transcript: Opens a side bar that contains the full transcript of the video you are watching and offers a search bar for finding specific information without viewing the entire video.
  • Details: Provides the abstract and bibliographic information for the video in the side bar.
  • Clips: Requires separate account with AVON and allows you to save clips of videos for later use.  The clips appear in the side bar.
  • Share: Expands the bottom bar with embedding information for the video.
  • Cite: Offers APA, Chicago, and MLA citation options - always double check citations provided by an outside source against the requirements to make sure that the citation is accurate.

The Bottom Bar

This portion of the player contains the video timeline that can be forwarded or reversed.  It also contains the video controls for volume, play/pause, closed captions, and settings.  This bar can be expanded by clicking the round button above the play/pause controls to show information about other related videos.
