    Default General question regarding running video with Falcon Player

    I've been running my light show for about three years now, using Vixen 3.3u2(#305) running on a dedicated Windows machine going out to a series of Alphapix, LOR and DMX lighting controllers. It's one show that uses about 8 sequences in a string that runs about 12 minutes in length.

    This year, I'm planning to add a video projector, which I'd like to tie into the Vixen light show. From what I've seen here, this is more than possible using a RaspberryPi running Falcon Player connected through E1.31. I don't need a strict time code type of communication. Just start/stop and preferably a sequence ID for playing the right video at the right time.

    What I'm trying to figure out is in the setup for Vixen, what do I use as the element for the RaspberryPi (assuming that it will be patched to a Streaming ACN E1.31 controller), and is there a way to have vixen send out a sequence number that will correspond to a particular video file on the Pi?

    If I could get the links to threads that would be helpful, that would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks, John! I found a lot of helpful information on setting up the Pi over on the Falcon Player forum. I'm still waiting for some parts to arrive, but I can't wait to dive into this!
