Hi d,
where did you put your scripts? The playstopped message is sent to the
player - and will be forwarded to the card and stack - but not to any button
(I think). So try to put the playstopped handler into the card script.
Remember to    set the currenttime of player "avond" to zero before you
start.

Betreff: newbie video player questions

hello all,
for severalweeks I am trying to move my video installations from  
Amiga with Director (yes I know but it worked well up till now but  
the old machine are starting to fall apart) to Mac (mini) using  
Revolution.
I know nothing about programming and very little about scripts.
basically all I need is for a video to start when someone uses a  
button or triggers a sensor and I got that to work for some of the  
works.
but one installation is more difficult I find out.
this one needs to play a short (1 sec.) video, according to time of  
day ( a greeting, taken from television footage) and then randomly  
select a different video and wait for someone to step on the contact  
mat an play the next greeting. (see here for what I mean http:// 
eddied.nu/html/welkom.html )
I tried the script below (I didnt even get to the time of day part  
because I don't know how to do that yet)
but after playing the first videoclip it just keeps flipping between  
the next clips. I get a feeling what is wrong but I don't know how to  
fix it. ( I gues it just goes to the 'go next card' part without  
waiting for the play command)


on mouseUp
   start player "avond"
end mouseUp

   on playStopped
       go next card
end playStopped

I tried using peopencard and playpause but that didn't do anything.


can anyone help me here?
regards
eddie
