IMG_2391.JPG (2,067kb) downloaded 5 time(s).Thanks again for your time!

Yes, am using the app as a stand alone product. We are using vMix in a couple of ways. One as it's intended as a stream/recording unit but the other we are trying to find a good reliable and maintained platform for running music, video and images in a theatre. Yes we can use something like QLab but as we already hold a license for vMix, we just want to try and see if this will suffice. Qlab also has the same problem, a small display for times.

Our lighting operator uses the time display to cue their next light state. On screen as it currently is, it's just a little too small. I love the idea of your app but just to have the "Position and Remaining" times much larger. I can then just place a laptop in front of the operator and they can easily see the times. Working in minimal light it's just easier :)

EDIT - The image attached is what we currently use called MultiPlay. It's no longer produced and not reliable with current compuuters. Looking for a replacement for this.

Just found this program and will defenitely put it in my workflow, as playback times of videos is asked for almost every time.

UPDATE: Version v7 (see first post)

I've added a couple features for those using the app as a standalone.

- Added "View" feature (Full Display or Timecode Only)
- Added Zoom feature to display larger Window
- Settings will be automatically saved and loaded when application is relaunched

cheers,
Richard

Hey Richard,
thanks for your work on this amazing tool. It's great!

But I noticed the cpu task spiking and taking 30% after a while. Is that normal?
In the beginning its only a few %. I can't reproduce the cause, but its definatly happening after maybe 30min of usage.
Im on a Notebook with a new Ryzen 4500U CPU, quit powerfull, so this tool shoudln't be too much to handle.

I would appreciate any suggestions.
Thanks!
Toby

Hey there!

This is truly great and has potential to be very useful to us.

One thing, when a video is triggered as an input Multiview reference item, the video plays the same as if the video input was triggered directly.
Is there a way to account for this and still work?

The firm I work for has a specific work flow setup and videos are all stored on one tab (light blue) and the show flow/rundown are on the red tab. Master video files/inputs are placed in the "videos" tab and then referenced to or called by blank inputs in the Rundown/Showflow tab via the Multiview feature.

Hopefully that makes sense and might be possible.

Thanks!

@jjbutler83

Unfortunately there is currently no feedback in the API to indicate which Multiview is active on individual inputs, so this would not be possible. I must admit that your work flow is a little unusual for playing back videos using the input Multiview. When doing this, you don't get the positional information displayed in the vMix screen either. I'm sure you have a reason for this, but I prefer to use 'List' inputs when playing back several videos. That keeps the vMix desktop clean and has the advantage of displaying video information in the list (Name of video, Duration, Time Remaining etc). It also makes it compatible with third party apps like Panel Builder and TimeCode Reader.

regards,
Richard
