Problems with VideoLan Object

Recommended Posts

I'm not sure if this is a coding error by myself, an autoit issue, or a videolan issue.

I've been trying to get the videolan object working within my script and when calling methods like play() and others, I get ==> The requested action with this object has failed.:

I've tried a bunch of examples posted by the videolan team and its still causing the problem.

I have been working with other objects like quicktime and wmplayer without many issues, but the videolan plugin just doesnt seem to want to cooperate.

I am running the .111 beta (just about to check for updates)

Edit- updated to 113 and still getting same results.

Any help would be great, thanks.

Have you tried looking for a VBS example that does what you want to do?

SciTe Debug mode - it's magic: #AutoIt3Wrapper_run_debug_mode=Y Doesn't work needs to be ripped out of the troubleshooting lexicon. It means that what you tried did not produce the results you expected. It begs the questions 1) what did you try?, 2) what did you expect? and 3) what happened instead?

Just try loading the vlc object and try to get it to play a file.

My code is split up pretty bad as its setup for multiple players.

Posting would be bad, ill put together a example.

There are a couple properties which seem to work, MRL, versioninfo and AutoPlay seems to return -1, I can set it to 0 but not to 1. The rest seem to crash it. Yes I have tried as many examples as i could find. I've tried with and without parens, capitalization.

#include <GUIConstants.au3>
$Form1 = GUICreate("AForm1", 337, 305, 648, 46)
$vlc = ObjCreate("VideoLAN.VLCPlugin.1")
$vlc_ctrl = GUICtrlCreateObj($vlc, 8, 8, 320, 240)
GUICtrlCreateLabel("Version: " & $vlc.VersionInfo , 8, 280, 320, 17)
$Input1 = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 8, 256, 273, 21, -1, $WS_EX_CLIENTEDGE)
$Button1 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Load", 288, 256, 40, 20)
While 1
    $msg = GuiGetMsg()
    Case $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
    Case $msg = $Button1
    ;$options = StringSplit("", "|");
    ;$vlc.addTarget("C:\test.mpeg", $options, 8, 1)
        MsgBox(0, 'title', $vlc.autoplay)
    Case Else
