$$$ NEED TO BE ABLE TO LOOP/REPEAT VIDEO AND/OR PLAYLISTS
« on: September 18, 2008, 05:04:01 pm »
I need to be able to loop / repeat a video and/or a playlist, played locally or streamed to other MDs'.

Is it possible and if it is what will it cost?

Playlists (stored or created ad hoc) loop anyway.

Create a playlist and put your media in it then select it for play wherever you want. When it gets to the end of the last media file it should go straight back to the beginning again.

Thanks for the reply, I wish that was the case. Audio Playlist loop just fine but Video Playlists DON'T.
Any Suggestions??

Just for some more info.

If I tail the Xine log file while playing a Audio playlist I never get a "CMD_Stop_Media()" command. When I play a Video playlist after the last entry it gives me a "CMD_Stop_Media()"

Audio log
"Xine_Player::EVENT_Playback_Completed(streamID=1004) <0x4680c950>
    Xine_Player::CMD_Play_Media() called for id 1004 filename: /home/public/data/audio/test1.wav () <0x41001950>
    Xine_Player::CMD_Play_Media() stopping PSS <0x41001950>
    Xine_Player::CMD_Play_Media() set stream 1004 as last rendering to screen. <0x41001950>
    Xine_Player::CMD_Play_Media() called for id 1004 filename: /home/public/data/audio/"

Hi,

just guessing: maybe you can wait for that command and start all over again with event handler ?

Bulek.
Thanks in advance,

I'm assuming that the Media Plugin is responsible for sending these messages to control exactly how a play list plays. I'm sure the other guys can correct this. But if son then I presume that you could modify the source of that plugin so that it wraps and recompile it...

Thanks again for the feedback, but when you say "I'm sure the other guys can correct this", what guys are you talking about?
Who would I need to contact?

Tried Bulek suggestion with no joy, I'm probably doing it wrong.

i'm sure he said that is not possible to do at the moment. This can be done with some coding work. How much money did you offer to him *lol*

Hari, is there anybody else I could try besides TSCHAK, He seems very busy and I just don't seem to be able to get hold of him. I think I'm annoying him by asking about the same thing over and over.
