Re: How to prevent Windows from Screensaver while program running

I thought of doing something like that, but was hoping for something a bit more elegant. I found some information in StackExchange that said there is a function in the Windows API called "SetThreadState" that programs like PowerPoint and Windows Media Player call on for this very task, but not sure ...

How to prevent Windows from Screensaver while program running

I have a Windows app built in LC that I want to disable the screensaver while running. You know, like all of the media player apps disable the screensaver while in "full screen" mode, so that you don't have to wiggle the mouse every 5 minutes while watching a movie. How could I achieve this in LC?

Re: Direct Show Player Causing APPCRASH

Just an update on this...I have been running this app in 8.1.2 for a few weeks now and have not seen this appcrash. So I'm not sure what changed that would have helped this, but maybe they found some memory issues that they resolved. I'm going to assume it is fixed and move on.

Re: Direct Show Player Causing APPCRASH

Bump. Anyone? I still haven't found a solution to this.

Direct Show Player Causing APPCRASH

I have an app built in an old version of RunRev that I'm trying to get stable in the newer 8.1 or 8.1.1 releases. It seems to do everything well, including play my multicast streaming video (thanks to the new DS player!), but if I leave the program running for several days the app eventually crashes...

Re: LC crash when saving standalone

i got it finally... i have to cancel all pendingmessages then it's working, it must be a bug i think, before 8.02 there was no problem like this Can you elaborate on what you did here? I've had the same issue with the 8.x versions crashing, in some cases crashing before ever completing the standalo...

Re: New Direct Show Player Object - Does it work?

I'm having trouble getting my development environment to work properly to test myself, but my app opens a ".sdp" file that references an H.264 UDP multicast stream (RTP). The little testing I have done so far seems to play ".wmv" files just fine, but others are hit and miss, and the ".sdp" files th...

Re: New Direct Show Player Object - Does it work?

Hi all, just installed the LAVFilter package, see page 1 of this thread, and now I can even play FLV videos and some MOV files with e.g. the Sörensen 3 codec! So don't hesitate and install that stuff, it's free, good times are coming :-) Best Klaus Klaus, have you tried opening a multicast stream i...

Re: Help! No more Quicktime on Windows - and now??

The new player for Windows, which uses DirectShow within the existing player object instead of QuickTIme will be in 8.1, with a DP build either next week or in three weeks time depending on how various things go. That is good to hear. I'm not on that mailing list, so thank you for that update. Anxi...

Re: Problem with playing video

Klaus is correct that it MAY work, but not reliably. QT was very reliable, but alas, that looks to be going away immediately for Windows users. I have an app that used QT to play a multicast stream via SDP file and it worked fine even when logged out and running as the screensaver. Now that I'm tryi...

Re: AV Foundation and deprecating Quicktime

As has been noted several times elsewhere in these forums, Apple's discontinuance of QT on Windows is public information and the LC core team is both well aware of it and working on a solution for it for delivery ASAP. This solution will not likely be in v8.0, given that version is now in RC stage,...

Re: AV Foundation and deprecating Quicktime

Digging up some old info here, but did the multimedia engine ever get traction in Livecode? With the latest news about Apple killing Quicktime for Windows, my standalone apps on PC will very quickly become useless, because QT is the only way I can get my H.264 multicast stream to play within the lIv...

Re: Appcrash when compiled in LiveCode but not RunRev

I know I'm resurrecting an old thread here, but it looks like I found the fix for this problem while fixing another issue, so I wanted to share! The problem with the app crashing had to do with the socket reads. In our old code, the stack was reading from the socket about once per second and process...

Re: Socket reads and handlers

Thanks, Ralph. I believe you are right, based on the behavior I'm seeing. This is actually really encouraging and I will be able to rewrite my code to run more efficiently. Rather than running the "read from socket" every x seconds, I can just run it once inside my "open socket" routine. That will t...

Socket reads and handlers

I inherited a clock/timer program (way more complicated than it sounds) written years ago in RunRev3.5 and run as standalone on Mac OSX until this year. We had a few little bumps along the way, but I was able to adjust most everything to get us a good working copy for Win7. The last issue I'm workin...
