I’m trying to write an little application that dynamically plays a single movie file repeatedly. I wrote it in Python, using these VLC-Python bindings
I would say that this wouldn’t be so hard and even though the very sparse documentation I can get a movie fullscreen without anything else on the screen and even change the file I want to play. What I cannot is simply let a single movie repeat.
I use the following code:
self.media = 
A –repeat-tag here:
self.vlc_inst = vlc.Instance('--mouse-hide-timeout=0', '--fullscreen', '--repeat')
And a ‘–repeat’ tag here:
self.media = self.vlc_inst.media_new(NEW_VIDEO_NAME + str(currentVideoN) + VIDEO_EXTENSION, ‘–repeat’)
self.player = self.vlc_inst.media_player_new() self.player.set_fullscreen(True) self.player.set_media(self.media[currentVideoN]) self.player.play()
These repeat tags don’t seem to do anything. The Instance class does have a function vlm_set_loop(self, psz_name, b_loop) but I have no idea what mrl should be. In the original code I figured out it should be a char-array (String), but I have no clue what kind of String this should be.
Anyone who does have a clue?
