    Well I know this is the hardware section - but this relates to video so I thought I would ask my buddies here on something I need to sort out with video processing and presentation.

    Q.
    How can you queue video and web page output via a software or hardware spooler or a type of media server?? [I think Powerpoint *might* do this..??]

    Need to do the following sequence basically:
    1. start at predefined time.
    2. play/show one or two web pages
    3. Play several 60 second videos.
    4. sleep for 10 minutes - static page
    5. play/show one or two web pages - different to above
    6. play several 60 second videos - different to above....
    ..[ie non looping content spooler]
    ..
    - need to do this for several cycles during a presentation evening.

    Basically it is a bit like signboard software that plays assorted web and video content that you can define beforehand...

    Anyone heard of anything or have any ideas please on the best way of doing this??

    Anticipate that the initial setup will be involved but subsequent weeks should be easier...

    cheers,

    supa

    I think that Powerpoint should be able to do what you want to do.

    I know that there are programs out there that are designed for exactly this type of thing, but they are pricey. We use something from Mercury Online, but as I said, It's pricey.

    I'd give Powerpoint a good go before forking out.
