Update: this hint was wikified, reworked to use "Media Plugin" instead of Xine_Player (this allows to see that media is played in Orbiter), another radio URL was added (currently it works), and also added notes&troubleshooting.

Do you reckon this would work for videos too?

My scenario as i'd like to see it:
My young boy has row of buttons that are programmed, via serial interface to fire certain kids films

This could be done i reckon with these media scenarions

I don't have any links to internet videos at the moment, so can't test. One possible change will be that you need to put the MediaType to 5 instead of "4". Please post here your results.

Yes, you can use MH Play Media to do this. Add this command to a scenario using the Advanced Wizard when creating the scenario. You just need to fill MediaURL with the path to the file on disk.

If you wish to take this a step further, you can use HADesigner to create a custom Skin, and a main menu screen for an orbiter (a lot more involved, but very customizable)

sorry to somewhat hijack this...but....thom did you ever get very far with the HA Designer stuff? if so what did you think of it? if youd want to talk about it i can start a new thread. im still very hopeful for the UI3 stuff.

think you could help some of us set it up and try to get it working for us? think it would be easy for an average person or would you need a lot of developmental type skill? maybe you could give a class in teh chat room sometime? :) what were your likes/dislikes about it?

it requires much patience. While the theory and infrastructure behind Orbiter's UI is very sound.. the tools used to fabricate and manipulate the interface are functional, but far from intuitive.

Creating new UI looks, is therefore going to be a completely different ball-game from other communities, in which it will take the cooperation of EVERYONE to make it a reality, especially considering that UI designs are not separate from the system, but are intrinsically tied to the database, and that when you make a UI, you have to not only consider people using UI2 on their TV's, but also:

UI1 on a TV
UI1 on an Orbiter
Symbian (aka Cell Phone)
PDA (basically UI1 vertically oriented)
and skin derivitives such as SmallUI which run on the Cisco 7970 IP phone.

So the typical rogue approach of an artist saying, "I'll make a skin!" won't work. We have to work together.

And I will be providing a workshop on HADesigner soon enough. I have to work out some logistics first.


and I am not holding my breath for UI3. It's all talk at this point, no action.

secondly, UI3 can't be just another "gee, let's just do this in flash" because we're needing to target for OTHER UI's than televisions. we have to also support our touch tablets, the Cisco IP phone, cell phones...

yeah....im still crossing my fingers something for UI3 pans out...but there hasnt been much talk about it lately. im sure its been kinda pushed back to get the final 0710 out. i am looking forward to your workshop. itd be cool if you could do a demo on installing and configuring and stuff with a camtasia like application. if you need help with anything, i am more than willing. im limited in experience and knowledge....but always willing to learn though. im glad you got it to work so well for you. i kept reading ...oh its crap...oh its not user friendly...its useless. i kinda figured people were just frustrated and didnt want to take the time to learn it.
