    Most cards can do Overlay Clone (NVIDIA) aka Theater Mode (ATI), not sure about the Matrox Parhelia... My memory is fading fast these days.

    Hmmm. I assumed they all output the whole screen, not just the video overlay. Well, unless I used the parahelion (sp) which I had overlooked until now.

    I think I'm digging out my Storm 2 card and looking over the supplied software. It would be great if one could just output Media Player overlay, but we'll look at the other options.

    I hope this info may be of some help anyone following this thread.

    I recently setup a system to playback DV clips out of Firewire thru ADVC. I used an old PC with a copy of Ubuntu Linux and used an app called KINO. its a very basic DV editor, but allows output to both screen and Firewire at the same time. Its a clips based editor, so creates playlists. I had no problems using it and ADVC3000 to play clips into a digibeta linear suite. I dont know if you could add additional clips to the playlist while it is playing, you would need to try it out.

    I also used one of the command line tools that comes from the DV Library used by Kino to playout clips to a DV deck. Its a tool called DVconnect and allows sending a DV file out over the firewire. with this tool IT IS possible to add addition clips to the output, by using PIPES. This is a pretty lowlevel tool, so there is no nice interface and you need to know you way around linux/unix shells to use it.

    No, but i found an old DVStorm board and used the Mediacruise software where I could create/edit playlists and output through the DVStorm's S-Video...

    Aristoteis, did you ever find a solution? I'm looking for the same thing - a cheap clip store.

    I've yet to find anything that was a complete media player software package that supported FireWire output (to the ADVC).

    However, some small consolation comes in the form of a Mac utility I've used: http://developer.apple.com/samplecod...Out/index.html

    Cheap playout solution

    Hi everyone

    I know that Canopus/GV recommends the Turbo product as a playout solution but I need a cheap solution to use with an ADVC1000 unit

    The idea is to find a cheap (free) software player able to output video through firewire. The ideal solution for me is to find a plugin for media player or winamp that can do that. I need to be able to change the playlist while playing so using a Timeline (Edius) is not an option. Can someone help?

    Any recommendations will be appreciated


    Thank you
