Long story made short I am working on a project for a potential future (personal) event and trying to nail down some of the final functional details involving CV. Mostly everything seems pretty straightforward. Been watching progress of CV off and on and really like what I see and the progress being made.
1) Is there an easy way for specific movie titles in my library to run two of them back to back with no intermission or bumpers in between and after those are done continue on as normal, potentially rolling through additional bumpers and intermissions and into other features? Reason for this is a few features in my library have some associated short film content (completely separate from CV's 'short films', these are currently acting as their own separate features in my movie library) that I'd like to run straight after those movies with no interruptions. Muxing/merging into a single video file is not an option due to differing audio codecs.
2) I have some short films I'd like to run as intermission videos but I'd like to run them in sequence if at all possible. They are episodic and named as such so I have 'Episode 01', 'Episode 02' and so on in those files. So after the first movie run Episode 1, then after the second movie and next intermission do Episode 2, etc..
Along the lines of those two, if it helps I'd also be perfectly willing to 'pre-build' my own playlist of all the segments CV would run through and specify which content to run for features/bumpers/short films but don't see an easy way to do so. About the only thing that would need to be left to CV's own functionality is the Trivia portion obviously.
On a side-but-unrelated note, I am also curious what people have come up with regarding cheap/inexpensive dimmable lighting that can be controlled through CV? Seems there's been a lot of cheap smart bulbs coming on the market lately but either proprietary software support or a proprietary wireless protocol necessitating their own hubs. One set of bulbs I have right now is the Sengled Element bulbs. Pretty cheap at $9 a pop for the basic 60W warm white dimmable versions. $40 gets you their hub and 2 of the mentioned bulbs. But sadly no third party software support other than Alexa/Google Home integration (is there any way to take advantage of this?). It does appear to be standard Zigbee but the cheapest option to integrate it into any third party software like OpenHAB appears to be a $50 Zigbee USB dongle on Amazon.
