Videos not playing

#1 Post by Cristiander » Wed Mar 15, 2017 4:09 pm

I made a breathing animation for one of my characters but it doesn't always work.
I have it as a webm

The define code for it is this:

Code: Select all

image nep_body normal = Movie(channel="nep_body", play="sprites/nep/nep_body.webm", mask = "sprites/nep/nep_body_mask.webm")
And the call function is simply this:

Code: Select all

show nep_body normal at right
But the animation doesn't always start. Sometimes it get's stuck on a specific frame, sometimes it doesn't start at all. I noticed that it has something to do with how fast I'm clicking. Is this a performance issue?

I don't understand what could be causing this.

It could be, but video decoding should be fast. It should catch up if it gets stuck, also.

@Cristiander : can I borrow your sprite for testing?

I tried using a random webm movie from the web as a sprite and it didn't get stuck. The problem is, it disappears when I push the "back" button.... :o

Ok, so these are the resources of the image: https://we.tl/wmy2ljcPPF

And this is how it's called:

Code: Select all

   
show whitetint zorder 100:
  alpha 1.0
with Dissolve(5.0)

show nep_body normal at Tright_small
show nep_face closed_happy at Tright_small
show nep_hair normal at Tright_small
show nep_mought smile at Tright_small
show nep_eyebrows normal at Tright_small
where Tright_small is:

Code: Select all

transform Tright_small:
    xalign 1.2
    yalign 1.0
    zoom 1.2
And whitetint is:

Code: Select all

image whitetint:
  Solid("#ffffff")
  additive 1.0

Thanks~ :D

I tried your code + the nep sprite in a new project using Renpy 6.99.12.4.2168 with New Gui on Windows. It loads fine; I don't see it get stuck... until I push the back button :shock: :shock:

Only the PNG parts of the sprite remains. Where did the webm parts go? :lol:
It happens with other webm files I use... so I don't think the problem came from the webm file itself. Did I do something wrong? Is this a bug? Can anybody else confirm this?

Odd. I don't have this problem...
When I go back all the images are the way they should be ...

I have the same problem of webm video displayable not playing when rollback. Add a second pause before load the displayable seem to help.

Thanks for your suggestion. I tried it, but it still didn't work. :roll:

Can you test it on a new project using the nep sprite above, with the new GUI of newest Renpy (6.99.12.4) on Windows system? The sprite consistently disappeared when I rollback at the line right under the line which shows the last part of the sprite (using Cristiander code above but without the whiteint part)

I always rolpback twice when I have any kind of animation or video.
Its annoying, but works perfect. I always assumed it was to do with how Ren'Py loads assets.
