I’ve written a casparcg client that could use with a mechanism that allows for metadata about a template to be passed.
I’d like to be able to setup a templateInfo.XML file and use it to provide info like:
- Available fields on the template:
a) How many?
b) What type is each one? Integer, string, rgb?
- Thumbnail image path (additional thumbnail.png file)
While I could access the relevant templateInfo.xml file if running the client and server on the same machine, the same is not true if the machines are not the same.
I could network share the folder and access it this way, or build a companion app that runs on the server and serves the files…
Has anyone stumbled across this situation? How did you solve your problem?
