slimvideoscreensaver is now available in svn download via addons manager

I've decided not to upload videoscreensaver.app.bin which the only real difference is the inclusion of a default screensaver
there's plenty of screensaver files, linked in first post to get you started

I just installed this and let me say that
1) it's great! Thanks!
2) it worked at the first try (and this make point 1 even stronger).

Question:
i see that the screensaver movie is choosen randomly, but then it is played forever. There's any chance to make it (randomly) play all the movies in the set folder after the first one?

I see 5 fields:
SCREENSAVER
MYSCREENSAVER
RANDOM_SCREENSAVER
RANDOM_SCREENSAVERDIR
SCREENSAVER_ON_PAUSE


and this is the resulting config
Settings wrote:POWER_DOWN_ACTION10='randomwallpaper'
SCREENSAVER='ON'
MYSCREENSAVER='/tmp/mnt/54D8D96AD8D94ABE/.__SCREENSAVERS__/AutumnWonderland.avi'
RANDOM_SCREENSAVER='2'
POWER_DOWN_ACTION11='/apps/slimvideoscreensaver/etc/init.d/random_screensaver'
RANDOM_SCREENSAVERDIR='/tmp/mnt/54D8D96AD8D94ABE/.__SCREENSAVERS__/'
SCREENSAVER_ON_PAUSE='OFF'

RW_LOCATION='/tmp/mnt/54D8D96AD8D94ABE/.__BACKGROUNDS__/'
RW_RESIZE='ON'


what should i change?

In the case i've not been clear:
suppose i have a.avi, b.avi and c.avi in the RANDOM_SCREENSAVERDIR.
The screensaver starts randomly (suppose c.avi) but then it's the only movie played.... the screensaver does not change to (say) b.avi at the end of c.avi.

oops :oops: this is the app.bin version
sorry to multivideo support

this version here http://forum.wdlxtv.com/viewtopic.php?f=48&t=5978
does have multi-video support with WDTVext plugin

multi-video is not implemented here, due to no WDTVext, it's needed to catch key press and stop the process
without WDTVext we can start the multi-video playback, but no way to stop it, except at cmd line
