Vlc Reverse playback

Hello , its possible to use vlc plugin for reverse playback of a movie?
there is any chance to implement this?
it would be very useful for vj purposes.
thanks

hello psy
I have tried building a patch for this purpose.
The logic behind it was the following

  • queue texture (insert was set to 1 and you can modify frame count)
  • when you hit reverse the queue and the movie stops + a counter travels from last frame to first and then in reversed order
    *when the counter reaches the last frame queue and play continues
  • you can also modify the backward/forward playback speed
    I havent figure out why, but in some files this worked as expected and in others vvvv crashed.
