Screensaver Mode - Configure to play a single MP4 video file
« on: January 20, 2021, 06:02:15 AM »
Can someone share a screensaver.nut file or show the code on how to tell attract mode to play a single user defined video file?

I've attached a screensaver that can play one video on a loop.

Options:

overlay artwork: none
slideshow mode: none
show specific video: path to your video
show bottom bar: no
screensaver timeout: 0
show top bar: no

Those options should let you display one selected video on an endless loop with no other options showing.

If you have any problems let me know. That screensaver has a few features I never use, but otherwise it plays constantly on a few machines I have.

Didn't think I would get a response seeing older posts related to this, thanks!
I will try this out soon and post results!

This forum isn't super heavily trafficked so, from time to time new/old stuff comes back around.

I tweaked an existing Screensaver years ago to add these extra features but I don't think I ever released it. I have lots of unreleased bits of things floating around, as I'm sure a lot of the other folks on this board do. Sometimes if i don't get a good answer I eventually ask again.
