Groov Video Gadget - Can I link to a video on PC


#1

With the Groov Video Gadget, is it possible to have it link to a video stored on the pc that runs Groov (Ie C:\Videos). These videos will be ‘help/instruction’ for the user, not external live feed cameras.

Thanks

Not at present no, for two reasons:

  1. The Video gadget, despite its name, doesn’t display video files. It just requests still images from video cameras at a fixed interval.
  2. Files outside of the groov installation directory aren’t accessible to groov to serve up, and likely won’t ever be for security’s sake.

OK, Thanks. Could a Phyton script call a video stored on the hard drive?
