hd1020 xml too big

hi all

here's a link to download my project

I'm working on a big project containing about 50 videos, and I need to jump from any video to any other video.

when I uploaded it, the player started rebooting. I read the log in the web interface, and the last message is "file too big", and the wrong file is the xml containing the whole project.

there's something I can do? if I reduce the size of the project, by removing all the links between any video, it works good.

I'm using brightauthor 4.6.0.18 and HD1022 with firmware 6.2.94

    the error is "File too big: pool/b/1/sha1-4f102dca1a08026044605086705ba4e8236855b1", the file is the project in xml format

    I may be able to help you.

    Could you post more information about the requirements of your project?

    If preferred, you could email to info@brightscripters.com

     

    Here are a few complex projects, that we optimized for manageability and performance.

    Hi Dario,

    The "xml too big" error, could be a result of the number of events in the presentation.

    If there are 50 videos, and each needs to be able to transition to any of the other 49, then you would have 50x49=2450 keyboard events!

    Each event is represented in xml, so this program may have gone over some limit.

    Regardless of the error, the BrightAuthor program seems a little hard to manage, and modify in the future.

    Seems like the program could have looked something like this

     

    The number of keyboard events could be significantly reduced, while maintaining functionality, and there is the possibility that the player will accept a much smaller xml.

    yes, thanks

    I used a video play file object and all seems to be ok.

    there's just a difference with the original storyboard: with v.p.f. any video is able to transition to any other video including himself, while with single videos, any video was able to transition to any video but himself. I prefer this second way, but since the other is working, it's all ok.

    Good stuff! Thanks for sharing your results.

    Can you post a screen shot of your BrightAuthor program?

     

    With a simple custom plugin, you could block the last key that was pressed, while allowing all the rest of the videos to be selected.
