    Automated Video Playback App?
    Seeking advice! Is anyone aware of a low-cost automated video playback application? I have several video files that I need to playback over a monitor based on time of day. I found an app, but the cost is $1,800. I would appreciate any help... thanks.

    Hi ffastforward Welcome to the MacProVideo forums. Have you checked out this application, Alarm Clock Pro: [url]http://www.koingosw.com/products/alarmclockpro.php[/url] You could also use it in conjuntion with Automator actions that you can write/compile in OS X's Automator application to close/open etc files. Alarm Clock Pro, on the other hand, will automatically begin playback of video files at times that you specify and can loop playback, alter the volume levels per "alarm" etc. Let me know if that's useful or if you have any other questions. Cheers Rounik

    This might actually do the trick. If I create reference movies to play back full-screen and loop, and as you suggest, set up an Automator script to be launched by Alarm Clock Pro... thanks! I appreciate the help.

    no problem, really hope it works ;-) Great that it has a 15 day demo trial period too. Can I ask what you're going to be doing with it? Is it for an installation of sorts? I'm just curious ;-) Rounik
