Hi everyone,
I’d like to play out multiple videos. I start with sending PLAY 1-1 “1.mp4” command. How can I get media length from server? I need this info for start playing the second video.
Thanks.

CINF should do what you need.

You can use LOADBG AUTO to make caspar automatically play another clip when it reaches the end, but you may still want to know the clip length to queue up clips

Which another clip is played by LOADBG AUTO? How does it choose?

See the wiki for explaination of command arguments.

Only one clips can be loaded in the background at the time, pr. layer.
