Command line based player with gapless/seamless playback of Video, pictures and flash is it possible in autoit?

Recommended Posts

Hello

I have been looking for a command line based program that can take a list of Videoclips, pictures and flash and then display them with gapless/seamless playback so that no black screen is shown between the clips, pictures and flash at all. You should ideally be able to control the time for example a picture is shown.

I have googled quite abit and there seems to be no solutions available.

There are solutions like converting everything to one big large movie and then use seamless looping with ffplay -loop 0 namneofmovie.mp4. But that is not optimal.

Hello i am wondering if it is possible to create a command line based player in Autoit that can take a list of videoclips, pictures and flash (swf) files and then use gapless / seamless playback to play them in fullscreen without any annoying black screen between clips, pictures and flash.

I know it is possible to seamlessly loop a clip without black gaps in ffplay with parameters -loop 0 nameoffile.mp4.

But then you need to create a large file with all video clips, pictures and flash joined together.

So is this possible in Autoit? It seems hard find much information about this subject i guess not many have a use for it.

Why have you posted the same question here? Seems quite similar to this:

Hi!


My UDF: NetInfo UDF Play with your network, check your download/upload speed and much more! YTAPI Easy to use YouTube API, now you can easy retrive all needed info from a video. NavInfo Check if a specific browser is installed and retrive other usefull information. YWeather Easy to use Yahoo Weather API, now you can easily retrive details about the weather in a specific region. No-IP UDF Easily update your no-ip hostname(s).

My Script: Wallpaper Changer Change you wallpaper dinamically, you can also download your wallpaper from your website and share it with all!   My Snippet: _ImageSaveToBMPConvert an image to bmp format. _SciteGOTO Open a file in SciTE at specific fileline. _FileToHex Show the hex code of a specified file

I use Irfan View for some of what you seek ... with paths in a text file (like a playlist).

Perhaps you can tailor it to do what you want .... maybe with some AutoIt scripting to help with timing.

With that latter, you could really adapt many programs, not just Irfan View.

Hi!

Hello i made that post because maybe there is a solution that is not autoit based.

I have some kind of plan now on how this maybe can be done.

I need a player that opens automatically in fullscreen that you can set to stop immidiately when it starts. There should also be a window title that you can lock onto.

So you open lets say three fullscreen windows. And then you use winactivate to switch between this screens just before the clip is played to the end so you don't see the black screen. You also start the clip in the background just before the other clip in the foreground is finished.

Is this possible or does anyone know of a more efficient way to do it?

Hopefully this is something you want to script yourself, obviously with a little help at various stages?

VLC Media Player is a good place to start, and if I remember correctly, someone here recently added a UDF for VLC.

The sooner you start crafting some code, the sooner you will get assistance ... that's my advice anyway, as most here, help those who help themselves. :graduated:

If you do something like embed VLC in a GUI, then you should be able to do pretty much what you want, with fine control.

      This file includes all the source codes and a compiled .exe version of zPlayer, which is a stand-alone, simple, intuitive and easy-to-use, yet fully functional media player.  I made this to suit my purpose and you can tweak it to your taste. The source code is only about 1300 lines and only standard #include files were used.
      zPlayer was my first AutoIt project through which I was hoping to learn coding. A media player capable of playing back audio and video files was my initial goal, but video was beyond my capacity for my lack of coding experience. So zPlayer was born as an audio-only player and remained so up to Version 2.0.1.5.
      Just recently I decided to add video function to zPlayer now that I had gained some experience. I thought it would be possible, but I didn't expect it to be this simple. I made minimal changes to the existing code and added only about 80 lines and, voila, I have an integrated audio and video player, starting from Version 3.0.0.1.
      This player has the following features:
      - Play back all formats of media files which can be played back by the Windows Media Player in your computer
      - Depending on the file types specified by the user in zPlayer.ini file this player can be either audio only, video only or both.
      - Video window is independent of other windows and, when it is maximized, increases the immersion of the user
      - Graphical player similar to embedded Windows Media Player
      - Forward, backward, pause, repeat, shuffle function
      - Increase/decrease/mute sound volume
      - Change folders and create playlist for all media files in that folder and its subfolders, and support for manually-made playlists
      - Save play-back environment when terminating and resume that environment when restarting
      - With one click, you can see internet search results for the file selected in playlist
      - With a double-click, you can play back an item in the playlist
      - Search strings in the playlist
      - Option to see long file names including folder names
      - Resize the playlist and video windows, and restore them to their default positions
      - Very small footprint: very low CPU and memory usage, with only about 1MB when compiled
      - You can even hide all the windows and manipulate the player with hotkeys only
      Note: zPlayer is the name I used when I introduced the early version of this player in my blog back in early 2009 and, therefore, has nothing to do with the mobile media player of the same name which started marketing in 2015.

      After I retired from active duty in 2002 I spent much time listening to music. First I started with CD's and LP's, then quickly moved on to mp3 files. I converted many of my CD's to mp3 and I collected many more from various sources which were freely available at the time. As the number of my mp3 files grew, I put them in folders according to their genres and my favorite classifications. I mainly used Windows Media Player to listen to them and I slowly began to dislike wmp because it had massive user interface while I just wanted to listen to music in the background while I was doing other work in the foreground, hopping between folders from time to time. It was the time I was beginning to learn AutoIt and I thought I should make my own player with AutoIt. Coming from a sales career with no experience in programming, it was not an easy task. Somehow, after about 2 years of learning and trying, I had my own audio player which worked with only hotkeys without any graphical interface. I gave it to some of my friends who were not as computer-savvy as I. They liked it but definitely wanted something to clcik with mouse. So I came up with very rude gui which took a form similar to what it is now.
      The attached source files include one au3 file, one icon file and 14 jpg files. The jpg files are used for drawing a graphical player and are fileinstalled in @DocumentsCommonDir folder. This player uses WMPlayer.OCX as its engine and supports all audio file formats supported by wmp and additional codecs installed. I would like to thank @Bilgus for kind answers to my questions and would appreciate it if anyone could review the code and give me any suggestion. This player works for me, but I don't know whether the code is presentable as an example. I am posting this here with a hope to learn much from AutoIt community.
      PS: 1. An error (Variable used before declaration) was reported and corrected - 02:00 hours GMT,  March 14, 2019
            2. An error in tray menu was corrected -10:00 hours GMT, March14, 2019
            3. AutoIt3Wrapper_Au3Check_Parameters definition was added at the top of the code and all ensuing errors were corrected. - 00:10 hours GMT, March 16 2019
            4. Some features were added. - 10:30 hours GMT, March 18, 2019

                b. Support for a manually made playlist
                c. Ctrl+Alt+h hotkey to trigger a help message box
            5. The minimum resizing width of playlist window was set at 450. - 01:10 hours GMT, March 23, 2019
            6. Problems associated with actions taken while in 'paused' status was addressed. - 07:40 GMT, April 12, 2019

      So I was playing with INet and downloading files and made a simple video downloader, or it can even be used for any file really.
      Just follow the reference section in INet_Settings.ini , and then run the script.
       
      Main Script <snip>
      INet_Settings.ini  URL - The target URL of the video you're trying to grab Data - This is the starting string, and ending string reference to look for the download URL itself. Settings - Only setting here currently, is the delay in which to wait for the file to download ### Reference for Start and End points for various websites <snip>
