VideoTexture vs VideoOut

I’m patching a video player with a dynamic playslist.
I know VideoTexture doesn´t buffer, but VideoOut’s full-screen is not very friendly.
What are the Pros & Cons of these nodes?
Is there another node for video file playback?

With video texture, you can do coooool stuff, while with videoout, you can only do ehh… video out.

With a texture, you can do alpha blending, rotating, scaling, color corrections, mulitple things, and all that at the same time.

Or use the cool transition shaders pack: transition-pack1

I don’t know what you mean with ‘buffer’ but there is a queue (EX9.texture) where you can ‘buffer’ stuff.

If you click on “contributions” and than look for the “VLC” plugin, there is an awesome way to switch between videos without delays.
