Best way to play little video inside a Gui

Recommended Posts

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.

Premature posting - found info in linked post

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


small minds discuss people average minds discuss events great minds discuss ideas.... and use AutoIt....

@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.

      Hello Everyone,
      I've developed my own GUI using AutoIt and I'm allowing users to minimize the GUI, but I also want to include some kind of timer so that it will automatically restore the GUI after something like 30 minutes or an hour. However, I also want them to be able to manually restore the GUI by clicking the application's icon in the taskbar.
      I've searched through the forums, but I'm not sure how to get started.
      Any ideas or functions to research are appreciated!
      Regards,
      TX Techie

      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 palyed 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 immersiveness of the user
      - Graphical player similar to embedded Windows Media Player
      - Forward, backward, pause, repeat, shuffle funtion
      - 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 palyer 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.

            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

      Hi, recently i created a GUI for some calculations in AutoIT.  The GUI has 2 tabs and on the first tab, it has few inputboxes where i use to click with mouse and start entering the inputs. i recently made some changes in the position of these textboxes. I made this by changing the autoit code file instead of making changes in KODA. Now i cannot click inside these textboxes with mouse. However, i can use TAB key to cycle through/enter input in these input boxes. what could have made the inputboxes not responding to mouseclicks. thanks
