Topic: Video plugin needed.
I need a plugin similar to showlogo that will show elapsed and remaining time of the track on the video output screen.

If this exists already please direct me on where i can find it.

Thanks,
DJ James

Yes but what I need is the live Elapsed time info that is displayed for each deck on the VDJ skin.
I want viewers to be able to see how long the video has been playing or how long it has left.

@SBDJ shouldn't the native text plugin be able to do this? [tried #`script`#, but it's not happening]

I had the idea and asked our Scot to come up with something similar so he made this.
Ive used it on v8 and it was handy before I got the remote app to work.

in this plugin you can change where the circle appears on the output screen, change transparency and change size too

I have been using Remain Circle on VDJ 7 for a long time. It has worked flawlessly, showing the time remaining of the video that the audience sees. If I load the next video on the other deck in the background, the Remain Circle doesn't change. Thank you to whomever created it!

I have the infinity license and I am trying to use Remain Circle in VDJ 8. The problem I have is Remain Circle seems to only display the last video that was LOADED. For example: I load a video in the deck 1, hit play, and activate "Remain Circle". The result is the audience sees the video and the little Remain Circle in the corner. I can leave the booth and deal with other issues. I can look up at the Remain Circle to get an idea of how much time I have left before the song ends.

The problem is I usually like to cue up (load) the next song before I leave the booth, so I have more time and can just step in and hit play for the next song. The problem is when I cue up (load) that song on deck 2 before I leave the booth, suddenly the Remain Circle changes to show the song I just cued (loaded). The full circle stays on the screen and doesn't move because the song is paused. The Remain Circle is then is useless as far as telling me when the song on deck 1 is about to end.

Can anyone fix Remain Circle so it works as it does in VDJ 7? Or can anyone tell me if there is a setting or adjustment that I can make?

Thank you for any help.

I can update this plugin for v8, I wasn't sure anyone was actually still using it ;)

Yes PLEASE SBDJ (Scott) if you could please. I've been using this and the simple "text" in VDJ 7 for years. These just are not as easy to use in VDJ8.

If you need a further explanation of the problem I described feel free to message me. Thank you.
