Made a quick en dirty folder watch to add/remove files to a List Input


ListFolder2.JPG (20kb) downloaded 14 time(s).


- Add to a List files added to a folder
- Removes from a list Files removed from a folder (with a few exceptions: Windows error saying file is use by other program)
- when starting it loads all current files in the folder to the List
- Will not affect folder files put/removed in the list by other means (in Vmix for example)

- details to be entered manually still (folder location and List Input number)
- not much error trapping yet

PM me if want to try/test, please say its for the folderwatch !! (as per usual at own risk)

Maybe will expand on it, maybe

Update:
Folder selection through Browserdialog
Selecting (exisiting) list from dropdown

Thank you very much for your work and kindness,
It is an interesting complement, it does what it says.
Could you offer in the program number of files in the folder and total duration time of videos?

Duration time: Technically possible but one has to note that one can still add and remove files directly within vMix and as such would not match with the folder itself.
The app does not respond to changes made within vMix. Again technically possible to solve but potentially creating more possibilities for people to do things wrong.
With that in mind what is the benefit of having a total duration ?

As it stands its a KISS approach where it doesn't even check if the files are even actual allowed video files (currently) .

One twisted arm ;-)

Total Duration time of List videos:

List totals can be larger than folder totals due to the fact items can be added/deleted directly within vMix

When adding/deleting videos from within vMix an autoupdate is not performed.
A disable/enable folder watch is to be performed for correct list totals

Same download link you received from me

If you use a unique input name instead of number then you have some safety in case the input number gets changed (which can happen in any number of ways)

Thanks, I agree
Visually also more user friendly
That being said would mean one would have to ask a user to change the input names to specific ones (especially in case of multiple list inputs). We all know how that works out ;-)

Is just a little project to see if i could do it :-)

The unique name is what we use in Automation for vMix, works great but definitely have to type the names exactly correct but worth the extra effort since you can move inputs all around and delete unused ones etc. without issue

We would also need to use input names instead of numbers. :-)
