Video-playback

hi there!

i have two videos playing at the same time.
if i switch the string-input (filename) of the filestream-node and the aviparser-node of one of the playing videos, the second videoplayback stop for a short moment during switching.
is there a possibility for smooth playback of the second video during switching the other video?

thanks for reply

i am afraid there is nothing special you can do about that. if it stutters…that is how it is. i mentioned already somewhere that the loading of videos is on my list of todos (which won’t help you now. sory.)

the only solution i see is trying to play both videos at the same time and then switch the videotextures or the quads. switching the input filename will always rebuild the playback graph which takes its time.

make sure to set WaitForFrame on all but one video to 0 when using multiple videos.

Not all videos have to be playing, it can be enough to have them all opened, right?

jeah. heaving them opened and paused _could help.

yes, so i can switch the textures and stat playing.
but if i have all videos with his own filestream-node opened(not played) @the same time, my sytemmemory(RAM) is not enought and full (2 GB)!! there are too many videos i have to open if i don`t want to switch only the filenames.
hm…

I think they load into gfx memory, hence you run out!
I got about 10 loaded I think,
ways of reducing the tick are using yuv texture, if the codec supports it (pic video does) and a raid array might help too! I got it down to not too anoying but have got other bugs with video textures!
