I have a project where I have a set of fixed mappings and artnet outputs, but the content needs to come from a large database. I will write software to go through the database dynamically and choose the videos that will be played on each output, but the database is huge and the system has multiple outputs.
Is there a way to dynamically load videos into a cue via a scripting interface? This would be ideal, but I was thinking of another solution:
Can I try to leverage the video loading process to do this - I would have 2 folders of videos cue1 and cue2, while cue1's videos are playing can I copy and replace the files in the folder that contains the videos referenced by cue2, and then when I go to cue2 will it load and play the replaced video files? (I would then repeat this process for videos in cue1 while cue2 is playing.
The second solution is less than ideal, but after some investigation I don't see a way to automate the video content in a cue or the media list.
I see a post about directory scanning - this seems not to be implemented in the software but any workarounds would be great. Or better yet if this is something that is on the cards it would be great to know as I do have some lead time on this project.
