[Solved] Play video in GUI at second or third monitor (UDF by Smashly)

Recommended Posts

Sven-Seyfert

Hi Community,

I use a UDF by @smashly to play a video in a GUI. That works fine for my main monitor.
But when I change the X and Y positions of the GUI (also for the video) to my second or third monitor, the video plays, I can hear the sound of it, but I don't see the video.

I debugged the UDF and checked the Microsoft description for MCI Command Strings which are used in the UDF (docs.microsoft...) - everything is fine, so I got no clue why the video isn't displayed.


PlayVideoTest.au3:

#include-once
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#include "VideoInGui_by_Smashly.au3"



Global $sFileVideo = @ScriptDir & '\transition.mpeg'
Global $iWGui      = 800
Global $iHGui      = 600
Global $iXGui      = 0 ; 1940 (here is the change)
Global $iYGui      = 0 ; -266 (here is the change)



Global $hMainGui = GUICreate( 'PlayVideoTest', $iWGui, $iHGui, $iXGui, $iYGui, -1, $WS_EX_TOPMOST )
GUISetState( @SW_SHOW, $hMainGui )

Global $sVideoAlias = _Video_Open( $sFileVideo, $hMainGui, $iXGui, $iYGui, $iWGui, $iHGui )
_Video_Play( $sVideoAlias )



While 1
    Switch GUIGetMsg()
        Case -3
            ExitLoop
    EndSwitch
WEnd

; Author ........: smashly
; Remarks .......: If your having trouble with avi playback (eg; playing fast, slow, choppy or no audio)
;                  or a video won't play but it plays fine in any other player ...
;                  Then set the $sDevice parameter to "MPEGVideo"
;                  If the $sDevice parameter is left blank then windows will decide which MCI Device type
;                  to use.
;                  Most current day avi/wmv/mp4 formats dont play properly or at all when windows selects
;                  the mci device type to use.
;                  Windows would default use "AVIVideo" MCI Device type to play avi with mci.
;                  When you specify "MPEGVideo" for an avi and mci fails it then uses the windows native
;                  chain of codecs that would be used by any other player not using mci ;)
;                  Because of this behaviour you can usually play almost any type of video that normally
;                  fails when using mci just by specifying "MPEGVideo" mci device type.
;                  For playing video on an autoit gui then be sure to add the $WS_CLIPCHILDREN style
;                  to your Gui. This will keep the Video dislpayed on your Gui all the time.

The example video:

It would be great when anyone can help :) .
Is there maybe a other way to play (display videos in GUI)?


Thanks for any suggestion - I'm grateful!

Hi Community,

after a lot of time of investigation and more searching through the forum, I decide to do it in an other way :) .
Other guys do have similar problems with videos in GUIs and sometimes it will be solved by VLC UDF or other external player.

For my case I can use a very simple way, a HTML5 Video, which I embedd through IE into the GUI.

+ I don't need an additional library or player to do that.
+ It works for every GUI position (it doesn't matter which monitor).
-  I have to use *.mp4 videos (but a video convert is pretty simple).

My solution (example):

Spoiler
#include-once
#include <IE.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>



Global $sFileHtml    = @ScriptDir & '\index.html'
Global $iWGui        = 1184
Global $iHGui        = 666
Global $iXGui        = 1991
Global $iYGui        = -266
Global $sVideoName   = 'transition'
Global $iVideoLength = 3000

Global $sHtml = _
    '<!DOCTYPE html>' & @CRLF & _
    '<html>' & @CRLF & _
    '<style>* { margin: 0; overflow: hidden; padding: 0; }</style>' & @CRLF & _
    '<body><video autoplay><source src="' & $sVideoName & '.mp4" type="video/mp4"></video></body>' & @CRLF & _
    '</html>'



Func _setupHtmlVideo()
    FileDelete( $sFileHtml )
    _writeFile( $sFileHtml, $sHtml )
EndFunc

Func _writeFile( $sFile, $sText )
    Local $hFile = FileOpen( $sFile, 2 + 8 + 256 )
    FileWrite( $hFile, $sText )
    FileClose( $hFile )
EndFunc

Func _loadGuiAndPlayVideo( $iTransparency = 255 )
    Local $hMainGui = GUICreate( '', $iWGui, $iHGui, $iXGui, $iYGui, $WS_POPUP, $WS_EX_TOPMOST )
    Local $oIE      = _IECreateEmbedded()
    GUICtrlCreateObj( $oIE, 0, 0, $iWGui, $iHGui )
    _IENavigate( $oIE, $sFileHtml )
    WinSetTrans( $hMainGui, '', $iTransparency )
    GUISetState( @SW_SHOW, $hMainGui )
EndFunc

Func _dispose()
    Sleep( $iVideoLength )
    GUIDelete()
    FileDelete( $sFileHtml )
EndFunc



_setupHtmlVideo()
_loadGuiAndPlayVideo( 128 )
_dispose()

 

Still, if there are different solutions or other ideas, I appreciate it ;) .

Thanks for any suggestion - I'm grateful!

      Hi all,
      Does anyone know if there is a way to disable the Windows "fade effect" that occurs when a window appears or disappears?
      It is possible for a user to disable visual effects in windows in general through the system properties > performance settings, but I am interested just in fixing it for a particular window that pops up in my app.
      I would like it to appear and disappear instantaneously, snapping in and out, out of nowhere, rather than the short (maybe 300 ms?) fade in/fade out effect that windows has.
      Thanks for any tips

      Hey Guys,
      Maybe you can help me with something small.
      It is not terrible but it slows down my script and after a while even crash the script.

      First i explain what i have;
      I have a GUI with a lot of GUICtrlCreateInput controls, lets say 600 pieces.
      All the controls are hidden when the GUI is displayed, i have 3 buttons attached to 200 pieces each.
      When i press button-1 the first 200 controls are showed,
      When i press button-2 the first 200 controls are hidden and the next 200 controls are showed,
      etc, etc.
      This is working perfectly but after a while the GUI is getting slower and slower.
      After a while the controls aren't responding anymore and the script crashes.
      When i compile the script to 64-Bits version the speed is a lot better but you can still see the script slowing down each time i use the buttons.
      I think there has to be a buffer somewhere that is filling each time i show and hide the controls, but how can i clear that buffer without restarting the script?
      Deleting and re-creating the controls didn't help, deleting the entire gui (and controls) and re-creating it didn't help also.
      The only thing that is working is restarting the script.

      Thanks guys!

      PS: If you need a working example i can add it to this topic, just let me know. It is not rocket science, i just create the controls and show/hide them with a while loop and 3 buttons.

      ProxAllium
      ProxAllium is a GUI frontend to Tor, it aims to make the usage of Tor easier by directly exposing its SOCK5 proxy which can be used to access the Tor network. The GUI is designed to be simple and user-friendly and it has a few other features... namely:
      Fully portable - doesn't write outside its own directory Integrated with Tor via the controller interface and properly communicates with it Minimize to tray Option to start with Windows Interface to configure bridges if Tor is censored in your region Many customization options are available via the config.ini file Screenshots:
      The code is made with pure AutoIt, is fully open source and you are free to adapt it to your needs
      The GitHub repository hosts all the releases and code. As a bonus it has a somewhat sparsely documented Tor UDF which can be used to control Tor, the code also demonstrates the proper usage of my Process UDF which might be interesting if you want to deal with processes.
       
      As some of my friends know, I no longer use Windows as my main operating system. I switched to Linux a few months back as my primary operating system and haven't looked back since. Unfortunately that meant I could no longer use my own program due to it being Windows only... after a few months of playing around with C and making a basic program, I have decided to rewrite all of ProxAllium into C and make it cross-platform. Sadly this means that the AutoIt version of ProxAllium will not receive any major updates now.
      Let me know if this is something you guys would use, I used it daily with my IRC client to connect via Tor (to protect my I.P). I hope you enjoy using my program!
