When turning on just the MLServer program, there doesn't appear to be a redundant check as to whether the clients are even powered (electrically) on or not. It appears it assumes you shut down everything correctly (which in the real world is seldom to never).
In my server list: These variables still hold info that should be blank. The scene (.mls) information is useless to hold because if you open the client it starts at the beginning (that I am aware of).
Code: Select all
One good reason to ping the clients (fail after 10 tries) therefore you are lost or off (thru the server) is this:
Using TTek Plugin and the remote.tt.mls file:
The play button on my nav just does the ~PLAY command. Not ~Play<<FILE>>. That would defeat the purpose of PLAY/PAUSE/STOP during a movie; if you used ~PLAY<<FILE>> the movie would always start at the beginning. The power icon(button) is ok, but it's only to minimize. If you set to ~PowerOn it just turns on TTek on the client (if the client was physically turned on). If you hit play it doesn't play (client ttek doesn't know which IFO to play since the client was electrically powered off). Because of this; holding onto the old information is useless since you could not restart at the old chapter/timeline.
The bottom line: it appears you can not restart a movie at the point you left off (when the client was off then turned on). When I powered on TTek (with the icon/button). Then clicked Play, nothing happend. I had to go back to the MOVIE list and start it from there to ulitize the play file command.
If I am incorrect, please show me what I am doing wrong.
