video time limits.

Post by leecarter »

I download and save streaming videos, such as youtube .flv files, then convert to windows media player format with ZillaTube. After inserting the video into the schedule, I discovered today, the hard way, that Songbeamer stops the video at 4 minutes. Any work around?

There is no video time limit built into SongBeamer. But we've recently had one customer who had an audio codec that only works for a short time. The problem was gone after installing the AC3Filter.net.

You could also try converting the video to a high resolution MPG-1 format and see if that works better. A perfectly working MPG-1 codec is included in every version of Windows.

Did you know that you can also play *.flv videos directly from SongBeamer without converting them? You need to have the Flash ActiveX control for Internet Explorer installed.
