Best way to play little video inside a Gui

6 posts in this topic

I would like to insert a video player inside the gui Autoit, preferably one with a free license such as Media Player Classic or VLC, I saw in the forum but I found examples of many years ago.

Some examples links or advice would be much help :lol:

I know to do so with the built in Media Player is simple:

$WMPLayer = ObjCreate("WMPlayer.OCX")
$WMPLayer.openPlayer("C:\Users\JLogan3o13\Desktop\720p.mp4")

For VLC specifically I would suggest looking at the UDF:

Never mind - I just walked through the follow-ups to the linked VLC UDF post and found the kind of information I was looking for. Apologies for my laziness. :>

 

Do you happen to know if the VLC UDF supports streaming (vs. file playback)?

We have an AutoIt app that writes some data definitions to a JavaScript file, and then launches a web browser with an HTML file that includes the dynamic .js file. The HTML file displays a grid (table) of VLC streaming players, each of which is processing a separate stream. It would be nice to eliminate the web browser and HTML/JS/CSS code by creating the grid of VLC stream players in an AutoIt GUI.

@tremolux66, sounds interesting,
could you post an example of that scipt here?
Thanks

@Chimp: Are you interested in the AutoIt script or the HTML/JavaScript?

The AutoIt  script is pretty straightforward: it just reads a .ini file, retrieves the key/values that have video stream info, and writes them to a JavaScript file as data declarations w/initializers. Then it calls Run() w/the browser path, browser options, and HTML file path as the command arguments and exits. Not much to see there.

If you're interested in the HTML & JavaScript, I'll see what I can do; it's since been rewritten to move the CSS and nearly all the JavaScript to external files. I may be able to dig up an old version and post a (filtered) copy of that.

      MS Splash Screens
      The office 2016/17 office suite has made many people turn heads with its functions and especially their splash screen.
      I now present to you, the MS Style Splash Screen. For Rookies, Novices and anyone who wants a ready made splash screen for your gui application.

      You can now download it and also try it out yourself.
      You have three colors to choose from:
      Blue
      Red
      Green
      All three colours are from the famous programs.
      I also included the KODA form to you can have freedom with this splash screen.
      Note: the KODA form does not have the three colours as well as the correct blue. 

      Have fun and enjoy.
      Note:
      I will update the splash to add the automated 3 dots animation at a later stage.

      A gui splash screen. Themed after the famous MS Office Suite.
      Three colours to choose from, Red, Blue and Green.
      You can change the labels to your own application.

      Also bundled with this is the KODA form. So you can open up and see the basic structure of this splash screen.

      Hello all,
      I've been trying to figure out how to launch Google Chrome in the background (hidden) but it doesn't seem possible. I've tried the following methods:
      ShellExecute("C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe", "", "", "", @SW_HIDE) Also I've tried:
      ShellExecute(@ComSpec, "/c start chrome.exe","","",@SW_HIDE) Lastly I tried:
      RunWait('"'&@ProgramFilesDir&'\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe" --silent-launch',@ScriptDir)  
      But all of them launch my chrome browser without hiding it. Does anyone know a workaround for this or if AutoIT just can't Chrome? 
      Bonus points if you know how to make it launch chrome hidden and make it go to https://www.autoitscript.com
       
      Thank you,

      I have a working program currently driven largely through menu selections. I would like to add a toolbar where most of the tollbar button actions are basically the same as menu items, but quicker to access. I have been wading around in toolbar examples, MSDN pages etc, it's clearly going to be a bit of a slog to get everything right, including tooltips etc. I thought I would start with something simple to prove the principle.
      Using bits from the help file examples I have a small program that successfully displays a toolbar. However, what seemed like the most elegant way to deal with the button commands does not seem to work. My understanding was that a toolbar button fires a WM_COMMAND message, with the command Id set by the second parameter in the call to
      _GUICtrlToolbar_AddButton ( $hWnd, $iID, $iImage)
      so I though it would be a good idea to set this Id to the same value as my menu item Id; then it would run the same task which is what I wanted. This did not work. I am using message loop mode and would like to stick with this because some of my scripts run hardware at the same time as the gui; it is easier if I don't have to worry about code being interrupted with the hardware in an unknown state . So I added a handler for WM_COMMAND, with some cribbed display code to try and see why. The toolbar button defintely fired a WM_COMMAND message and the Id looked the same, so no explanation there.
      I guess the issue is with GUIGetMsg() which may be constructed to ignore all but a limited number of control handles, i.e. those made with the GuiCtrlCreate... commands; this is speculation.
      I would dearly love to find a tidy way to get around this. Having some controls handled in the message loop and some in a WM_COMMAND handler, performing the same task, feels ugly. I would be very grateful for further insight from someone experienced with handling a toolbar. Perhaps I should be trying to fire the menu item. I have attached a code snippet to try and illustrate the issue.

      Hello all,
      I've been working on 4 standalone scripts. They each have their own GUI and are now independent .exe's. But instead of having 4 separate icons on my computer, is it possible to put them all together into one .exe?
      What I want is one interface with tabs. Each script's GUI would be on their own respective tab. Is this possible?
      The different scripts don't need to communicate with one another. I just want them all in one .exe.
      I can't find this anywhere... Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
