Hi,

I am trying to use SetPosition. In order to cue the video straight on beat of the music from the external mixer, I wish the script to set a position and then start from there. But it seems vMix is rounding up, like:

2500 ms = 3 seconds
2450 ms = 2 seconds

I don't want it to be round up, I want it to be straight on point. Could it be there is a bug in vMix?

Thanks,
Dennis

@ DennisdeWit

Perhaps a 'Feature Request' is in order.
As near as I can figure, the vMix "SetPosition" function counts in milliseconds, whereas a video typically counts by "Minutes:Seconds:Frames" and thus there is no reference to actual frames at anything between 0 and 999 milliseconds and it rounds to the nearest second.

I also know that seeking in video files is sometimes a tricky business, depending on your codec and encoding options. What kind of file are you trying to seek? Do a MediaInfo dump on it if you can please...
