I'm working on a video wall project that allows the user to change the content based on Live Media playlists. In the middle of playlist, there is a section for videos to play. The videos will always be different lengths from each other, so I am using UDP commands to send a message back to the master player when each one completes. This message is being assigned to a variable specified in the message ('player01Complete:1, player02Complete:1, etc.)
I was thinking that I would check on each message if all of the player Complete variables summed together = Number of players in the group, would mean that each player had finished, and we could move on. This is proving to be much more difficult than it should be.
Does anyone have any ideas? It seems like such an arbitrary limit to not be able to add variables together outside of a custom script. Is there something I am missing?
I have also tried Setting a variable to $$var1$$+$$var2$$, this results in a string like: '0+1'. Darn.
Thanks for any help!
