updated 10/14/12 videoscreensaver.app.bin v 1.4   

Postby KAD » Thu Oct 06, 2011 8:05 pm

just like it sounds, use any supported video file as your screensaver
I was unable to directly add slideshow support, you can however create a video file from your pics and music, which will work
feedback is welcome, also feel free to share screensavers you think the community will enjoy
the default screensaver is The Lost Watch II NV in 1080p, If you've never seen this here's the youtube clip I pulled the video from


Changlog

10/14/12 version 1.4
added option to use or not use videoscreensaver on Pause

12/07/11 version 1.3
*added more time between system checks - this should prevent premature screensaver start

10/29/11 version 1.2
*added option for random selection of screensaver (at powerdown)
*script will now start regardless of power status
*forked slimvideoscreensaver.app.bin so that it actually works

10/25/11 version 1.1
*fixed application manifest
*release of slim version

10/20/11 version 1.0
*Public Release of videoscreensaver.app.bin



downloads
download available from svn use addons manager to install (has no default screensaver you must provide your own, download is only 16KB)
videoscreensaver.app.bin (100MB download, includes default screensaver)
I will not be uploading videoscreensaver.app.bin to svn, I see no reason to continue maintaining 2 versions, and there are plenty of screensavers linked below to get you started


Available Screensavers
Autumn Forest 20MB
Autmn Wonderland 19MB
Fog Horses 14MB
Lake Tree 11MB
Lost Watch 72MB
Snow Village 32MB
Sunny Patio 23MB
Winter Wonderland 21MB
Orbital Sunset 11MB
Thanksgiving Day 14MB
Cyberfish 17MB
Blooming Sakura 16MB
Christmas Evening 15MB

Supported Devices
WDTV Live
WDTV Live Plus

Requirements
any WDLXTV firmware
DMAOSD_DEBUG must be "File" or "File + stderr" (first tab in WEC under "system")
if DMAOSD_DEBUG is "OFF" this will not work

Installation
put on root of thumbdrive
set DMAOSD_DEBUG (first tab in WEC under "system" if you've never used this select "File")
reboot
select videoscreensaver ON (WEC osd tab)

Optional
enter path to your custom screensaver (WEC osd tab)
enabled random selection of screensavers (WEC osd tab)
random requires setting a path to directory of screensavers (WEC osd tab)

Notes
if this fails for any reason you still get the normal screensaver

hey kad, regarding the problem that you have to play any video before the screensaver video is played in the foreground (I guess if you don't do that it will play in bg and you can hear it but not see it?)

if that's the case try setting meta info before playing the video with upnp-meta...

just to clearify:
1. generate meta-data with upnp-meta
2. set transport uri + metadata
3. play media

anybody know if it's possible to set a folder via upnp or playlist, or set of files
from what I can tell it's no possible, please correct me if, I'm wrong

only other solution for slideshow would be to create an array and feed the files 1 by 1

really glad to hear some feedback, I have noticed it does seem a bit loud the video clip is unedited, just pulled straight off of youtube, with only a container change from mp4 to avi

I found something else I had not thought of before, play state PAUSED_PLAYBACK, when you press pause in a movie etc, currently you get the normal screensaver, because does not meet any of the requirements on my script
however, initial test show it might not be possible, if I change the play state to STOP it causes a fatal system error which causes an immediate reboot, but I still have a few more idea's to test out
