Altered Video Player

14 March 2018

Wow, time has flown! Yet another Netflix Hack Day has come to pass. For the Winter 2018 event, I decided to experiment with the combination of HTML5 Video and Canvas. The result of that effort is the Altered Video Player!


AVP is basically a video player that autogenerates a jigsaw puzzle from its source in real-time ( in this case a selected Netflix Original trailer.) To solve the puzzle, just rearrange the pieces by dragging and dropping them back onto the center grid. Difficulty can be adjusted in the top-right menu. You can also upload your own custom videos if you choose.

Note: This hack was developed/tested primarily with the desktop version of Google Chrome ( experience may vary on other browsers )
