Nope. Is there some alternative to paying $50 just so I can play mp4 videos natively?
What if I download the h264 codec from online?

At this time there are no supported alternatives to the current H.264 plug-in for H.264 content playback in SongShow Plus though you can convert videos to WMV via a variety of methods.

We played around with other free codecs several years ago. Worked for a little bit, but ended up messing up the computer.

We ended up paying the $50 x 3 for our three projection licenses and our MP4 playback has been working smooth since.

Do I think $50 is a little steep for a codec? Yes. But for us it was worth it in diminished headaches.

RE: Mobile Control not connecting to SSP program by Albion Bible Church in Version 8.5

Was able to correct problem by disabling IPV6 setting in Advance Windows Network Settings.  Thanks Brian, George and Brad for your assistance.

RE: PowerPoint by George in Version 8.5

Gary,

Regarding your question about the post 1809 WMV video issues - possibly.

That issue was only encountered when multiple high res (1920) videos were used so if this is created in the importer at less than 1920 then probably not.

RE: Timer with looping slideshow by akins in Version 8.5

I couldn't tell exactly what was causing it. The only conditions for which I
have tried using the timer with Improv was a continuously looping
set of announcements (~10) which had slides with a motion background and
some animated text. The count-down was to the next 1/2 hour.

Gary, it looks like you, me, and Joel are about the last of the "old-timers."

RE: Control SSP with Abelton Live through MIDI by George in Version 8.4

Hey Gary.

I believe there was some discussion of this (or something like it related to MIDI control) a while back but to date there are no MIDI control functions, in or out, in SongShow Plus.

RE: Slides fill half screen question by George in Version 8.5

Hi Hilda,

There are actually a number of ways to do this.

Several would involve changing the size of the display area is SSP but others would allow full screen with live video background.  You may even want fully supported text over live video via the DeckLink solution.  It really all depends on what the final result is that you want.

If you really want to keep the same setup it seems it may be about educating your operators, but if you are really looking for a different setup then I suggest you (or your video people) contact the support team and let them know what they want as a result and they can help to set it up.

RE: Preview display by StanCason in Version 8.5

Yep, it works fine if you use a Title slide as your first slide.
The problem is if you use the build option "First Lyrics Slide Only"

I just checked it out in the 11/27 build and the problem is still there.

RE: Abbreviation of Bible version? by akins in Version 8.5

I may be missing something, but this looks like I would have to type in the entire scripture reference just to change the final "New International Version 2011" to "NIV." If I am correct in this, it is not a very good solution. Maybe in all the fancy changes/additions in version 9, a simple addition like this could be 'snuck' in.
