Run Video thru to a Projector
« on: October 10, 2016, 08:43:36 AM »
I would love to be able to use Xlights to run my show but I use Video (MP4) files out to a Projector and As far as I am aware Xlights does not have that ability yet. So my suggestion would be the ability to run video if its at all possible ...

Ive tried the Rasberry Pi and although some say they have excellent audio from it I have not been quite as lucky and have attempted some of the same remedies others here have suggested but its just costing me more money than I care to spend and the audio is still awful.

I'll be sequencing my show in xlights this year but running the show from LOR as I can still play my video from LOR with no issues and the audio is fantastic.

 XLights scheduler can play a movie file and a sequence file. This has been true since 2012. Add a mo4 and a fseq file to your pkaylist. Note: xlights does not sync mp4 and fseq , it just starts both at same moment. Works fine for most stuff, might be off. Y one second by end of sequence
