About Terminal Video Player Playlists

Atrise TVP can only play presentations (video, images) using playlists. Playlist is a text file with list of media files and special commands.

An example of a simple playlist:

video1.mp4
video2.mp4

The program plays these two video files one to one in a loop.

Pause Between Files

A command pause inserts a pause between files. The format is:

...
pause N
...

Here N is a count of milliseconds (one second has 1000 milliseconds).

Example:

video1.mp4
pause 5000
video2.mp4

Pause Between All Files

It is useful to play images. A command pauses will insert pauses between all next files. The format is:

pauses N
...

Here N is a count of milliseconds (one second has 1000 milliseconds).

Example:

pauses 5000
video1.mp4
image1.jpg
video2.mp4
image2.jpg
