MP4 Playlist?

Fri Aug 20, 2010 7:54 am

Hi -

Is there anyway to create a playlist (M4U I think) so that several MP4 files can be played in succession instead of playing only one?

The only native support for playlists is via the .m3u8 files of HLS.

However, you could parse the .m4u and call the roVideoPlayer.SetContentList() on the array of content meta data for the playlist. This technique will cause the player to buffer between each clip in the playlist.
