Soon... M_PLAYER 4.20 with subtitles enhancement

Post by Moulinaie »

Hi all,

I am working on Enhanced files that can add subtitles or comments to an existing animation.

Just write a plain text file with the same name as the animation changing the extension to ENH in the same folder. M_PLAYER loads it to enhance the video replay.

The goal would be to have a kind of "pause" system that allows you to use an animation as a tutorial. During a pause, the user can work on an application applying what's explained in the video. Then, he comes back to M_PLAYER to watch the next part, and so on. Those pauses would be automatically driven by the ENH file.

Those files can be multilingual and automatically select the current system language.

Here is a video I made to show this... Sure, I speak french, but with the support of images and what I said here, you should understand the main features.

For now, it's a beta version, still testing... But it is available on my pages:

(français) https://gtello.pagesperso-orange.fr/mplayerf.htm
(english) https://gtello.pagesperso-orange.fr/mplayere.htm

I don't know if it works in every resolution, I think that I will find problems on a TT/Falcon without graphic cards as M_PLAYER switches the screen to a better resolution if it's not the good one. It doesn't work with every type of animation (but most of them yes!). I hope to fix everything soon.

The manual, source and executable are up to date.
At the bottom of the page, you can also download the ANIMS.ZIP archive, I added the BDBY87.ENH file presented in the video that adds subtitles to BDBY87.AVI in french, english or german language.

Guillaume.

I've just got to test your last release :)
Noticed what you say about M_Player changing to a "better" display resolution when testing with some Apex Fli/H on a Falcon.
Thank you so much!

Thanks to all,

I am working on a general pause (independant of the Enhanced files).
For speed reasons, M_PLAYER reserves the screen and works generally without VDI/AES calls to replay a file as fast as possible.
So you can now pause your video and interect with the desktop, and even move your M_PLAYER window, then you can resume the replay.

The basic principle looks easy... but there are so many cases! (The TT that switches to 256 colors, the Falcon that Switches to TC, all other machines with graphic cards that keep the desktop resolution, the 256 colors modes in which I have to manage the palette between desktop and anim...)

Let's say that 80% is done for now...

Guillaume.
