standalone offline player
« on: November 14, 2011, 08:30:07 AM »
I had a bit of a nightmare setting up at a client with poor internet connection.  He said he had internet so I did not worry.  Wow imposible to set up at client.

you should have a player for such demo situations.


I ended up playing a video of a signage presentation on vlc ;) i know shame.

we do have plan to improve on the "poor" connection setups in release 3.2
for now you will need to find a better connection method that is either up or down, but the constant toggle could be an issue

no fancy programing needed, just a simple "playback" player demo mode.  It would be helpful for testing screen resolutions issues and demos, etc.   The thing is that many times the network guys might not be around, for example.  Even a "record presentation to mp4" option might work.   I would record it an carry it along just in case.

Record to mp4 would be nice!
