Hello,

I'm wondering if someone could help to advise how to place the rss ticker on top of a playlist of videos and photo's.
I have a playlist autorunning with photo's, there is an rss ticker on top playing. When a video kick's in you see (in the fade between
photo en video) the rss pausing and the video starts. The rss ticker is beneath the video (not visible) en continues when video ends
and photo starts. Could someone help to change the right xml and let play rss always on top without stuttering?

Hi invince.

How did you create the playlist and how do you use it?

Did you modify the xml's yourself to place the RSS ticker on top of the photos and how did you do that?

I need some more info to be able to help you out Smile

Hi Gade, can you send me a pm with your emailadres? I can send you a link with the imagefile. The xml's are modified by our selfs and placed on top in the rss xml file.

We use slideshow.xml and videofullscreen.xml, when you put the rss in the videofullscreen.xml its very stuttering. So we need a solution to put in on top of both.

For RSS in video, I think the stuttering has to do with FPS. Do you have a log?

Can't you create a custom window (custom_Whatever.xml) to display the RSS on top of it all?

Maybe use a high zorder to get it on top.

The stuttering shouldn't be skin related - more hardware or, as Robotica suggests, FPS related.

First problem is: How to display 1 rss always on top of everything? We dont get it working, only with 2 seperate rss feeds, but when video starts then rss starts from beginning so that's not smooth.

We can only help you if you provide the info we have requested in the above posts.

Post your modified skin code here in this thread and I'll take a look at it.

Did you read my above post about the custom window with an RSS feed on top of the other windows?
