MidiVideoPlayer (MVP) is a Videoplayer for Windows that you can controll using midi, directly on local computer or from a VST over LAN (cable or wifi).
It is developed for playing multiple videofiles and showing images on video-projector during shows controlled from your DAW. With MVP you do not need to have your video-track inside your daw, not even on the same computer. And if you like me does a lot of start/stop and want to have a nice backdrop-image or looping backdrop-video between the sets this might be something for you.
You also free up some cpu on your music-computer when the videos are played on a second computer or if you use wour workstation builtin sequencer just connedt midi out to computer and select interface and channel 16 (or other) to trigger videos directly from your synthesizer.
MidiVideoPlayer, the Windows program, the player, is built in 32-bit and 64-bit.
VidiVideoPlayer-VST, the VST3-plugin, is built in 64-bit and is windows only.
The player can be used without the vst and controlled by a midi-interface of your choice.
It can also be used triggered from your DAW using the VST-plugin and LAN or localhost.
The plugin does not play any videos, it is just a sender to the player.
You controll the player using your midi-keys. All keys can be assigned to a video except C3 to B3 (Midi-Key 60 to 71) . Those keys are your controller keys.
You can load videos, play/pause/stop, +10 sec/-10 sec, Loop on/off, show/hide backdrop-image, show/hide looped backdrop-video, show/hide videoplayer and also controll video volume using Controll-change #7 (Volume).
All controlls can be used from Local midi-interface or over lan using vst-plugin.
