ok downloading will let you know
I copied both files into the Ultimate map, but I can't get it to work. I don't know what goes wrong.
Strange thing is that I hadn't any skin.ini and RRscreens.txt in the ultimate map. I may have an older version of the skin which isn't compatible? Is it possible to upload the complete ultimate skin since I can not find any download link for this skin anymore.
if you see this create a playlist file called RRvlc.m3u in your roadrunner directory. add
#EXTM3U as the first line then the name of a video file e.g.
restart rrvlc and it should play the file.
tell me whether this works then we can work on the ultimate bit
The VLC sreen opens and I see a traffic cone in the VLC window. The name of the window is RRvlcscrn1.
I've already created a M3u file which point to the C:\tmp\test.AVI in the Roadrunner map. When I start RRvlc, Road Runner and the RRvlcscrn starts but unfortunately no video starts to play.
I had a go at embedding this app in Freedom ultimate and it works fine. You will still need the files I posted previously but if you also add the following it will work embedded
&mainbut15=VlcDVD@icons\dvd.png@LOAD;vlc.skin;RUN; C:\program files\carputer\road runner\rrvlc.exe;RRVLCscrn1;",""&
to your menu.txt file (dont forget to ammend the button number and path to your setup
add the skin file to your ultimate skin folder.
change your rrvlc.ini to be
EDIT - added new updated file to post 35 which now contains all files and read me on how to install
I just can't seem to get this to work. I've followed the instructions above w/ no success.
Here's the error I keep getting when using the button code to load a movie w/ the BMV sample skin you provided.
I've tried it w/ and w/o the base path and just partial/full paths to the movie, but it just won't play...Code:
# Tells RRvlc if it should run in single or twin screen mode.
#Sets the root path for screen 1 audio/video files
BasePath=C:\Documents and Settings\Sal\My Documents\My Videos\
#Sets the directx audio device to use for screen 1 (must be an integer i.e. 1 or 2 etc)
#sets the default playlist file name. This can be reset and new playlists loaded using VLC1ACTION=LOADPLAYLIST
# and VLC1PLAYLIST=playlist name. The file must exist in the folder where rrvlc is.
#Sets the root path for screen 2 audio/video files
#Sets the directx audio device to use for screen 2 (must be an integer i.e. 1 or 2 etc)
#sets the default playlist file name. This can be reset and new playlists loaded using VLC2ACTION=LOADPLAYLIST
# and VLC2PLAYLIST=playlist name. The file must exist in the folder where rrvlc is.
The latest version automatically loads and plays whatever is in the playlist file. Try following post 43 and add the full path and movie name with the baseurl not set. The movie should then play.
If it does can you post the skin file your using for me to check.
I did try your suggestion on 43 and I currently do not have a basepath set.
What did work is the path to the movie in the playlist w/o the #EXTM3U for the first line.
As soon as I hit the button with the following code:
I get the error I posted above.Code:
