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 on Windows. Here's my attempt at getting a file to play: require 'rubygems' require 'rprogram' require 'rtranscoder/version' require 'rtranscoder/ffmpeg' require 'rtranscoder/mplayer' include RTranscoder mooplayer = RTranscoder::MPlayer.new("C:/Program Files/SMPlayer/ mplayer/mplayer.exe") 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 Rua HM.
