I’m trying to use RTranscoder (http://rtranscoder.rubyforge.org/) to
play back video files full screen on windows. I have installed
RTranscoder and its dependencies (in particular RProgram) via gem and
also installed a version of mplayer (SMPlayer).
I can’t find any examples of how to start a video file playing; I have
had a stab at getting things working and it’s not clear whether I’m
going about it the wrong way or if RTranscoder is not fully supported
Here’s my attempt at getting a file to play:
mooplayer = RTranscoder::MPlayer.new(“C:/Program Files/SMPlayer/
mooplayer.play(:media => “X:/Video/MTV’s Downtown/MTVDT01.mp4”)
This is the error that i get:
`popen3’: popen3() arg 2 must be ‘t’ or ‘b’ (ArgumentError)
Note that I installed at made a slight change to RProgram due to the
fact that open3 is not supported on Win32; I installed win32-open3 and
changed the for it in rprogram.rb to require ‘win32/open3’.
Can someone point me to some example code to play a video file using
RTranscoder::MPlayer on windows?
Thanks in advance
