Pause main looping video, play interactive video(s),return to main loop and continue where paused

 The title says it all, interactive is done using GPIO and all that bit is a doddle, but can I pause the main loop and return and continue at the end of the sub videos or will it always go back to the start?

    If you're using a player with multiple video decoders (XD, XD2, 4K) then you can send a zone message to pause the main loop video zone, then play the sub videos in a second VideoOrImages zone in front of it.

    At the end of the sub videos, transition the second VideoOrImages zone to a transparent image or hide it (BrightAuthor 4.4/newer) and send a zone message to resume the main loop video zone.

    Please make sure that all video content is the same audio sampling rate and decodable by the player (ie, not AC3, multichannel or anything that only works in HDMI/SPDIF Pass through mode) if you need audio in both.

    I act accordingly and found show zone / hide zone not working, when I use z position to bring second zone to front, it work as I expected but when media end, it won't hide.

    Could you share your BA presentation here, so we can take a closer look at the programming?
