How do you 'stack' a series of music videos to play?


R

Robert Macy

Stored in files in different folders are individual music videos
all .flv types

With each 4-6 minutes long, I'd like to select a series and have them
play. At least 10 of them so I don't have to stop working to start
another one at the silence.

How to do that?

While I haven't done it with FLV files, I use VLC Media Player and just
Right-Click on the folder that contains multiple music files and choose
"Play with VLC media player" and it goes through each file consecutively.

thank you for your reply. I don't know what VLC Media Player is. I
want to bridge across subdirectory boundaries AND have music videos
played in the order listed.

When I click on any of these files, Sothink FLV Player plays them

What I was thinking of was either a file of names, or a way to simply
click names and they play in that sequence.

VLC can create playlists (and save them if you want).
IMO, VLC is one of the best players ever (and Irfan).

It's at v2.05.  If you like it, I suggest making sure you have the latest
version.

I now remember the reason I did NOT use it before. The field of view
on the screen was fixed size, very tiny, and no way to change it!

Can you make the new version's field of view while playing videos any
size?

If you are suggesting that VLC cannot be resized, you are quite wrong.

That is exactly what the old 0.8 version did.

Really? I've had a copy of VLC installed for many years, but never used
it much. I don't remember that. I just did a quick search, but I don't
see any mention of that, although I see some comments that imply that
they may have disabled that feature temporarily for a short time in
order to fix a bug. But I don't know, you may know more about it than
I. In any case, version 0.8 was, like, eight years ago. Resize has
worked fine for quite a while now.

Do you know if the new version will install but NOT grab access to
the .flv files? Set it up so it doesn't preferentially open anything.

I want to be able to click and play like now. And, when desired,
purposely start VLC and open a 'list' of videos.

Does VLC allow me to modify the amplitude of each video? [ahead of
play] If the videos all come from the same uploader, they seem to be
almost equal in volume, but these videos are really 'hit n miss' One
I cannot hear unless the volume everywhere is turned full up. Then
when you play a 'normal' video the poor little speaker cones land on
my desk.

And worse, inside one video can't hear, then applause is so loud the
volume 'moves you across the room, like that ad. Is there anyway to
edit a .flv adjusting the volumes to the same levels, cutting out the
applause, or simply cutting out non singing material before and after
a performance. Anybody who has downloaded an X Factor video knows what
I'm talking about..

PS: I use google for access to usenet groups, and for the third time
google in its wisdom suddenly asked me for my password as I posted the
response, throwing any laboriously prepared response away! Yet, I can
stay logged in to google for days and days, It's just the timing of
the question is incredibly damaging.

Just obtain v2.05 use it and play with it.  Yes you can change the volume,
resize the display, associate or not specific file types, etc.

It is a versitile and capable software.  Let's not get off track in what can
it do etc.

PS:  Drop Google Groups, it is crap.  It is the major source of crap posts
and spam and thus many in Usenet space summarily killfile all Google
Groupers.  Use a News Client via a News Server.

thanks for the comment about google access, explains why sometimes get
few responses.. tried eternal september, but can't post through it,
asks questions which I have no idea what they're talking about., and
the way it presents postings is terrible for my use.

You can get answers to any questions you may have about eternal-
september from their own support groups:

eternal-september.support

and

eternal-september.newusers

I suspect your problem is that you need to sign on with authentication,
using the username you chose and the password assigned in the email
message you received at signup. If you don't, you will only see the few
support groups.
and the way it presents postings is terrible for my use.

The presentation of the messages a function your newsreader program.
Eternal-september is only the news server, and has nothing at all to do
with how the messages look.

Then you're doing something wrong. Pont your browser at
www.eternal-september.org, that will tell you how to get an account.
Then get a newsreader (www.mozilla.org/thunderbird,
www.forteinc.com/agent, and others), set it up, plug in the eternal
september data, and you'll be set.

Yes. Just install it and play with it.
And get rid of google groups.
Most of us killfile googlegroupers, including me sometimes.

Paul,

I also use T-Bird (later version) but I use "news.individual.net." I
don't have the "request authentication" ticked as you do. Why do you
have that selected?

Request Authentication, is for NSPs that have a username and password
to gain access to the news server. E-S uses authentication.

What I find interesting, is the protocol isn't "automatic" on Thunderbird.
And that it requires the user to guess at what kind of account it is.

For example, AIOE doesn't use accounts, and so the
Request Authentication is not ticked for the AIOE session in
the same Thunderbird. Anyone can use AIOE.

It's curious, how the other USENET clients, avoid this detail.
I don't remember tick boxes for other clients being mentioned
by anyone.

Maybe it's the fact that E-S is "dual mode", and supports
both authenticated and non-authenticated sessions ? On
the E-S server, you have access to some *.support groups
if you don't use a username/password. So if you wanted
to access the server that way, you clear the tick box.
When you want access to all the groups, you fill in the
tick box, and then T-bird prompts for the username and
password to use (and has options to remember them).

I use individual.net, too, and I DO have the authentication option
checked. I can't imagine that it would work without it, because they DO
require ID/password authentication in order to retrieve News. Also,
their setup instructions for Thunderbird specify that that option be
used.

https://news.individual.net/configuration/thunderbird-8.0-win-en.php

Are you sure that it's working for you without that option? Maybe you
accidentally turned it off while looking it up to write your post?

No, it's unchecked ... and if this post gets through,
that'll confirm it's not required :). Also, I see your link
refers to an older version of T-Bird. Perhaps my current
version (17.0.4) doesn't have this requirement, and instead
uses the password manager option? I do have N.I.N in that
manager.

After re-reading the NIN set-up, I see the answer in Section
10. A secure connection isn't required for access. But,
some T-Bird versions need the authentication option. My
original "version" guess above may be correct.
