I've read some of the posts about Flash being supported but I can't find how you add a .swf file to the program.  The extension doesn't show up anywhere on my system as a supported file type.  I've looked and I have the Flash support plugin installed but it's from like 2002.  Have there been no updates to it since then or is Flash just not supported in the current release?

Go to Tools -> Video file settings(clear at the bottom)

On that panel, you can select which file extensions will show up for videos, including FLV

Support for .swf files was dropped some time ago. There is no official support for .flv files but some users get it to work using various codec packs.

I just used YTDLR to convert some AAEO MPEG files to WMV (because I usually have better luck with WMV than MPEG), and none of the files would play in SSP. I could import and add them, but they had red "X" instead of "play" in the Program Panel. Fortunately the MPEGs did work, and I didn't have to switch from DVD player to computer during the service, or worry about 'spin-up lag' with imported DVD. The WMV files did play without issue in WMP.

I am not familiar with the YTDLR video converter but some converters do use older WMV codecs that we have seen issues with.

I have found consistent results running videos through the current version of Windows Movie Maker.  It will produce videos that will play in SSP.

We are investigating the issue with the older WMV codecs as they were verified to work and our test videos still work but we have had some reports of conversions to WMV that do not work.
If you take a look at the video in a video tool that will tell you what CODEC it was created with, see if it is the WMV2 (WMP v8) one - that seems to be the most problematic though there are others.

Thanks!!! I will see if I can determine the CODEC.



This reminds me of another Video issue. How far down the road is video w/Audio as a background for songs? I would love to be able to take IWORSHIP videos, and put my own lyrics over the top. Our Teen CBS meetings hasn't had a band in a couple of years, so we use videos a lot. Most of those have lyrics that are too late, too small, or blend in with the background.

RE: Fire OS version? by yehoshua in Mobile Apps

One option may be installing "Apps2Fire" on your mobile device. This can be used to install device programs on a Fire TV Streaming Stick across the network. It might work for the tablets; I haven't checked. This is probably the easiest solution, if it works.

There are also a couple websites out there which will access the Google Play Store and download the APK files from Play directly. I don't have the one I tried bookmarked, but it shouldn't be too hard to find, but be careful, to. I *think* the one I used is https://apps.evozi.com/apk-downloader/.

RE: Now What? by akins in The Wave Pool

And we have watched your title change and become more impressive over the years -
does that mirror an increase in pay ??
We have seen lots of changes in  SSP over the years:
mostly for the better, a few not so hot.
This forum has been the first of my browser bookmarks,
but now is largely, and disappointingly, inactive.
One thing is certain - things change!

RE: 8.4 Shutting Down by George in Version 8.4

Just to clarify - is the application (SSP 8.4) shutting down or is the system shutting down?  

Did you have prior installs of 8.4 that did not behave this way or was this your first 8.4 install?

In any case, you should contact the support team so that they can take a look at this.

RE: Stage Monitor Settings by George in Version 8.4

You can set independent Slide Properties for the Stage monitor, which does include margin settings.  My guess is the if you have less real estate on the Stage monitor then you probably want to make sure the Shrink to Fit option is selected for the Stage monitor - this will make sure the text fits as expected.

If you need additional guidance on this contact the support team for a walk through.

RE: uicjk List by George in Version 8.4

OK - Glad this will work for you.

A few things to keep in mind for the Quick List:
  1. There is only one Quick List per display - you don't save them like programs. 
  2. The Quick List loads every time you launch SongShow Plus.
  3. Related to #2 -- If you add something to the Quick List but then change the source material outside of SongShow Plus, it can cause issues with SongShow Plus starting correctly.
