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...

Re: Video in Background Issues

Standalone allows drawing over video.
Just need to sort out video path now, as it doesn't play video.
Glitchy, but works if you trust it...

Re: Video in Background Issues

Thanks Klaus. Do not get me started on Windows. I'm ready to throw my Windows 10 computer out of a window!!! I might give QT a try instead of OS MM engine... See if that works. As for the video not paying... When I reset the path to the same path, or a different video, it just doesn't work. When I d...

Re: Video in Background Issues

Hi Klaus, Thanks for the reply. Excuse my lack of proper terminology, I am just getting back into the language. I used the player widget on the toolbar. Drag and drop. I am then using separate buttons with the controller turned off (so later I can make some funky buttons) as per the tutorial about m...

Just getting started in LC and learning capabilities, so please excuse the dumb look on my face when I read replies! :D OK, I am writing an app for video analysis of runners. It involves: 1 video playback and 2 video playbac...
