    Videoplayback following a time schedule

    Hello,

    As the title says, is there a program or an easy way to set up a Videoplayback that follows a timeschedule? Like if it starts playing one file 15:00, and when that file is done, it starts a loop with videofiles until 17:00 when it starts another file, and so on.

    I know this might be possible in VLC with some scripting, or is there maybe a complete solution for this already?

    Thanks!

    Hi, you can create crontab jobs ,here is a nice "how to" with examples
    http://www.thegeekstuff.com/2009/06/...ntab-examples/

    also...if you use gedit as your editor, crontab doesnt use gedit by default.
    to set gedit as your crontab editor,append the following to .bashrc in your
    home directory. *Note the "." .bashrc hidden file..to view
    Code:
    ls -al .bashrc
    cat .bashrc
    Code:
    #sets gedit as default for crontab
    export EDITOR=gedit
    have fun !
