Auto view video in slide show
« on: January 30, 2023, 10:00:17 AM »
Hi,

In preview I can with the edit mode define my video viewer and all is fine so that I can view a video clip. When in slide show mode the video will just not play and display one image (assuming that the format is recognised by PM+ which is not always the case). I cannot even start it manually. Could there be an auto view or at least a button to run a video in slide show mode? Naturally I need to be able to select which extension will use what viewer. It could be even a different list than the edit mode.

Wouldn't this be cool?

Thanks.

JP

The technology used to implement the slideshow does not have the ability to play videos.  Perhaps on a future release of PM/PM Plus we'll use a different technology capable of playing video in a slideshow.
