Video Player

Hi... Probably requested before... The video player object seems to be pretty glitchy (at least for me). Issues with loading file types, playing in background (alwaysbuffer), only playing audio, working at one time and not another etc. It sounds like there could be a better way of dealing with video...

Video Formats (Solved... almost)

Hi Brainstrust… Quick question that has probably been asked a thousand times Livecode Community 9.0 on Windows 10. I have an issue with loading videos. I have looked through the forum and found the same issue with different formats. So I am a bit bemused... In my IDE and standalone, I can load the f...

Re: Bugs with videos???

Update: Klaus gave me an idea about not creating and destroying players. I now have 3 players. 1 that shows when the "One Movie" button is hit, and disappears when the "Two Movie" button is hit. The other two do the opposite and I cross-manage filepaths… Everything now works. Play, 2 screens, load o...

Re: Bugs with videos???

Hey... I've been playing with the file, reconstructing it and copying in code from previous file (the one that was giving me the problem). To find the point where the livecode file stops working for me in the IDE... It seems to be when I add a second video player on to the screen using code... If I ...

Re: Threads for beginners

Do the tutorials included, and then pick a simple project to do and hack at it.
Check with the dictionary and search the forum here for what you want to do. Most of it you will find that way. The rest, you can ask. The people here are really helpful.

Re: Bugs with videos???

So, we've decided that the fault is not with the stack per se. Klaus can get it to work, and I did a standalone and got it on to another computer, and it worked. There is an issue with file types, but the loading does work. Solution may be to uninstall LiveCode and reinstall, and see if there is a g...

Re: Bugs with videos???

Thank you Klaus.
I have sent through some files that work and don't work, and a little explanation in an email to you.
Thank you very much for having a look at this.

Re: Bugs with videos???

Thanks for the reply sphere. Windows (W10... crap I know!) IDE and Standalone. They both act exactly the same. When I wrote the code, they both worked, now, neither do. If I can get the video to load in IDE, I can get it to load in standalone. I'd be interested to see if another Livecode program has...

Bugs with videos??? (solved)

Hello. Me again. I have written a video app that allows users to open a video and play it. I managed to get it all to work, kept writing code elsewhere within the app, got a few more features in it, and now, the open function just doesn't work. I haven't altered the code that originally worked (Klau...

Re: Working with Vector Graphics- Code

Thanks for the tip Bogs. I'm new here, and learning. Adjusted post to include code. Thanks Capellan. When I was writing this app, I couldn't find anything because it was so scattered, so I really wanted to consolidate it all into one place, open sourcing the code that I wrote (other people probably ...

Working with Vector Graphics- Code

Hey Mods... not sure where to put this. If this is in the wrong place, you can tell me where to stick it. :P Working with Vector Graphics Livecode provides the user with the ability to draw a couple of different ways: Raster and Vector. For those of you who don't know, here's the difference: Raster:...

Re: Load Video from HD

Thanks Klaus, Yet again you're a font of all knowledge! That should be part of a tutorial... I would have thought that would be common to need to do, but not obvious when it comes to the script. As for my name... Xero is a pen name from the mid 90's when I was writing webpages in GeoCities (anyone r...

Load Video from HD (solved)

Hi, Another stupid question! I am rounding out a video analysis app, and just need to know the command that will allow a user to load a video from anywhere on a HD. Something like this: Click on button, open up dialogue box that shows C:/ (or whatever), Find a video, select it, get that path, use th...

Re: Drawing a Line Graphic

You're some sort of magickian Klaus. I am sure I had something like that, but it wasn't working!!! The dictionary is extremely difficult to use if you don't know exactly what you are looking for, and tutorials/ examples are the same... That's what's driving me insane... I knew I had to create a list...

Drawing a Line Graphic

OK... I feel a little stupid asking this... I am trying to write a part of an app that draws a line on the card. It should be simple, and there should be a thousand examples/ tutorials about it, but damned if I can find one!!! Here's what I want to do: Click on screen and hold down mouse, start draw...
