Hello DCers,

I am days away from going on tour with a theatre production that involves sound and video playback and have yet to find the ideal software with which to cue the show.

What I need…

  • PC software with low system requirements that will run on a basic laptop.
  • Is fast and stable.
  • Ideally freeware, or at least inexpensive.
  • Plays wav files.
  • Plays h264 video files.
  • Has a playlist of files.
  • Pauses after playing each track until a key is pressed to advance to the next item.

It is this final requirement that is the biggest stumbling block.

I have used xmPlay for this purpose in the past, but it only handles audio NOT video, so is no good this time around.

Any pointers? Thanks.

Check the Un4seen page with a list of software that uses BASS. There's a video component for BASS, and I'd guess that there are some players out there like that. It's been around for years. One of them might do it.

Replying to my own post…

Just discovered that VLC can do this. There is an option in Preferences (Advanced Mode) under Playlist to "Play and Pause".

Seems that it might be a viable solution for me - but I'd be happy to hear of any alternatives.
