Running Movie files in S5 for Halloween. HELP

Recommended Posts

I just finished running a test run of our Halloween display in which I am using the Music Video "Thriller".  Every time a run the Show on Demand feature, it runs perfectly until it has to loop to the second time through.  At that point it generates an "Error running Media File" and continuously repeats the error.  The only way to stop it is to Stop the show immediately and then restart the Show on Demand for subsequent sequence run through.

So I thought that it might have something to do with the Show On Demand feature, so I set a schedule and let it start on it's own.  The same thing happened.  I can't imagine spending my Halloween night restarting the show every 12.5 minutes for 3 hours.

The second problem is that I can't figure out how to get the movie to automatically start on the data projector, full screen.  It initiates on the primary screen, so I have to quickly move it to the extended monitor (data projector) and maximize it.  If this is a setting in S5, where can I find it or what is the solution?  This is my first time working with a video file.

This was addressed in the 5.0.10 release. Go to Tools > Preferences, then click on the Video tab. The right side of this tab now sets how the video plays in the Show Player (or Show on Demand).

Thanks for your help Matt, everything is now working great except for my effects on the mega tree.
