Idea: DVD Player Plug-in, Sequence Player
« on: December 01, 2008, 12:34:53 PM »
A friend and I had a idea and I wanted to see how feasible it sounds to you folks, and also which DVD Player software (VLC, xine, WMP?) might be a good fit:

A plug in that lets users load/save small "play sequence" files (XML) that is simply a list of start and stop play times for a specific movie?  Play "00:01:00 to 00:23:33", "00:25:55 to 2:02:55", etc.  The plug in would simply play the ranges described in the play sequence file one after another.

I imagine the plug in would have to activate after decoding an decompressing.  It should be fairly high level, I hope.

Sound easy? Sound hard?  Which DVD Player software would be the best to handle this type of plug in?

Thanks!

FYI, "asx" files let you specify sequences of media files to play.
