Is there a way to "loop" a movie/file using the usb channel? Poked around in here and couldn't think of how to ask the question so I didn't get a bajillion hits on the word "usb". :shock:

You loop a movie file by calling the video player from a loop:

Sub main()

Video= getavideofunctionthatyouwrote()
While True
Playvideo(video)
End while
End sub

he's saying that if you were programming the function for a channel, that's how it would be done. Does the existing USB channel have a setting that allows you to loop a video? No, it doesn't.

techn0lizard and Schmye Bubbula, you know you're in the developer area of the forum, right? Unless the thread was silently re-located by a mod afterward, jbrave's answer was entirely appropriate, if you're a developer. And if it was silently moved, then bad mod, bad! ;)

They have a 'moved topic' icon in the forum they were moved from (the icon has an arrow, and if you hover over it "Moved topic" pops up). Explanatory screenshot:
