So the client walks up and says: ‘We didn’t get the dvd of the music video that we wanted to play in time, but it’s on youtube can we play it from there?’
Sure we can do that.
We used the venue’s wireless internet access to load the video. We ran the output of the laptop through the video switch and set the video to full screen. Using the laptop keyboard we were able to start the playback while still in full screen mode.
I wasn’t sure it would work, but it ended up working and looking great. I am not sure the audience even noticed the difference.
You can see the video here.
