It's been a while since I've made a request! (ever since my inglourious award)....
Anyhoo, here is the request. It is intended very specifically for WINDOWS OS. I am requesting some ffmpeg automation with GUI. It needs to be able to run as a service, meaning restarted if accidentally stopped or errored. etc. Here are the specs:
specify a root folder, then pick a random video file from that folder, and it must search through the subfolders also. No consistent folder structure. So, essentially, it needs to make a random playlist from a folder with a chaotic bunch of video files in it. Video files can be of any format.
Once picked, then run an ffmpeg CLI command (which I have already figured out and can post).
Run as a service. Although, I guess this is not essential since I can use other software to turn it into a service.
ON the GUI side, well I guess the GUI isn't needed, but might help. I was hoping for a place to select the folder. And maybe another part just letting you know the file that is playing or that the service is Live or not. Maybe just a top line showing the selected folder, and then a window showing the output from ffmpeg, that would be nice too.
