Software - the random media player
#1
Hi !

This is my first post. I've been reading this forum for a loooong time, but I never had the chance to post on it.

I have got a LOT of dirty fetishes, but selfbondage is by far the biggest one. This forum gives me so much inspiration, thanks !

During my sessions, I like to be aroused as f***. This is how I enjoy it the most.
In order to achieve this huge frustration, I use a lot of fetish videos.
The fact that I make the playlist (just before the session most of the time), kills the "I'm not knowing what's gonna happen" thing.

Because I'm learning some Python programming during my free time, I challenged myself to create a media player that can create the pseudo-random playlist.
I'm working full time (and a little more), so the media player isn't moving fast, but it's moving.

Right now, it can :
- digest a folder and its sub-folders in order to find videos (.mp4)
- filter videos that contain a word and only add them to the playlist

- digest a video on its own
- randomise the playlist
- change randomly the time of the video (so you don't watch the beginning of it everytime)
- play the videos full screen


My use of it :
I put my videos in a folder, I give it to the script. The video is played at a random time for 5 to 30 seconds and a new video is loaded. And again and again....

I like this 'zapping of unknown' effect a LOT.

So, I'm here to ask a couple of questions about it:
- The script is not ready yet (pre-pre-alpha really dirty code - you don't want to see that). When the script will be more mature, do you want me to share it with you ?
- Would you use it as a Python script or would you use it as a clean user interface program ?
- Do you see some functions that I could add to it ?

Of course, you can also use it to play your favorite my little pony videos.

I'm not a native English speaker, sorry for the long and fastidious post. If you read it until now, thank you !

One problem - you can't use blindfolds, and you can close your eyes and fall asleep. I use hypnofiles for this. If you are bound, gagged, plugged, blindfolded, you can't avoid anything forcefully coming in your ears. And you do not know what comes next.

I love Python! But I was forced to learn it during writing a set of programs for an urgent project Big Grin

Yes, of course! Please! If it can play video, it should be able to play audio.

I'm thinking about one powerful hypno-induction, and then random parts from random hypno files, together with various triggers.

OTOH, the same can be achieved by using playlist(s) with a random choice.

I'm not really into self sensory deprivation, but I will sure give it a try one day ! My main problem about hypnofiles is that they are all (like 99%) in english. Because it's not my native language, it doesn't work on me... But I need to make some researchs !

When the script works, I will find a way to adapt it Wink

I thought about it. But I made this script for two main reasons : I use vlc to play videos and it doesn't handle well enought the load of a huge playlist. My script handle it pretty good (no pre-load).
And the playlist does not give you the zapping effect that I love. It's harder to change the time at random with a simple media player (like vlc).

I will sure let you informed about this script.

And if you have any other software idea, I would give it a try if I find some free time Wink

What do you use (in python) to play a file from X to Y time? VLC? Or some python library?

I use a library called python-vlc. It is a binding between the python library and the VLC native API. You can set the time of the video, change the rate of it, etc... With some simple algorithm, you can play only a part of a video. And that's where the fun begins Wink

Aha, that makes sense indeed.

I do like randomness. Years ago I wrote a script that shows a random picture out of my huge collection, that should give me an idea for the next self-bondage session. That was interesting and very unexpected! Big Grin

A use a similar plugin for the Blog - every other minute it finds 3 "new" random images. I wonder if it's possible to do the same for the forum.
