I.D. AL - FLASH MPX HD - Full HD video Player - User Manual
6 - Play mode
The Flash MPX HD offer 2 play modes. Standard Mode and Fast mode.
With Standard mode, you can use easily the player without any programmation. When you trigger a folder
using an input, you can see a latence (0.5s up to 2s) before to display the first image.
With fast mode, you can start a video without latence but you need to prepare a special video file and a
config file.
6.1 - STANDARD MODE
6.1.1 - Operating mode and naming of files
The file names and folders define the playback mode. The files must be stored according to a specific
organisation described below.
- Organisation of the folders:
Only ONE folder level is allowed at the root. The folder names are made of 3 digits (000 to 127) followed
by optional parameters and a name of your choice.
Example :
001
003 [J002]
034 folder name
125 [SEQ] my folder
●
The first three digits represent the folder Number and thereby its main name.
Example :
000 : Folder N°000 - "Autoplay" folder which is automatically played when the device is powered-on
001 : Folder N° 001
034 : Folder N° 034
The folder number is used to define the playback sequence, it identifies the folder when a folder jump is
required and on triggering of an input. You can use any number between 000 & 127.
IMPORTANT: The 3 input contacts allow trigger of folders identified by these 3 digits, as per a binary
sequence from 001 to 007.
Input 1 : Folder 001
Input 2 : Folder 002
Input 3 : Folder 004
Input 1 + 2 : Folder 003
Input 1 + 3 : Folder 005
Input 2 + 3 : Folder 006
Input 1 + 2 + 3 : Folder 007
® Waves System
-9-
V 1.1 - 2011
I.D. AL - FLASH MPX HD - Full HD video Player - User Manual
The simultaneous use of several input contacts offers up to 7 different combinations. No. 001 to 007
corresponds to the 3 input contact combinations.
Special case: Folder 000 is the folder which will be played by default on powering on. On powering on,
presence of this folder is checked ; if it is present, the player plays files of this folder. If this folder is
missing, the player wait and display a wait screen.
6.1.2 - Optional parameters (standard mode)
To modify the behaviour of the player, you can add optional parameters to the folder name. These
parameters are boxed with the "[" "]"symbols. You can add several parameters to the folder name.
[Jxxx] - Jump to another folder after reading the current folder.
[RND] or [SEQ] - Specifies random or sequential playback mode for the current folder.
[Vxx] - Controls the volume level of the folder.
[NT] - Define the interruption mode (Interruption or no interruption)
Note: If no optional parameter has been indicated, the player reads in alphanumerical the
current folder in full and stops. Player can be interrupted.
●
[Jxxx] - Names the folder Number to JUMP to after reading the current folder.
By adding this parameter to the folder name after the folder Number, you define the behaviour of the
player after reading the current folder so that it starts reading another folder or loop in this folder.
Example:
001 [J000]: Jump to folder 000 (Autoplay folder) after reading folder 001
002 [J003]: Jump to folder 003 after reading folder 001
000 [J000]: Jump to folder 000 after reading 000 -> Loops in folder 000
Jxxx : xxx = 000 to 127
If this parameter is missing, after playing all files, player wait and display a wait screen.
●
[SEQ] or [RND] - Specifies Sequential or Random playback mode for the current folder.
Default is Random mode.
Example:
001 [SEQ]: SEQ for Sequential alphanumerical order
By choosing [SEQ] you select sequential mode. Sorting is done in alphanumerical order of file names
® Waves System
- 10 -
V 1.1 - 2011
I.D. AL - FLASH MPX HD - Full HD video Player - User Manual
Example:
001 [RND]: RND for Random order
By choosing [RND] you select Random mode. The files are not read again as long as all the files have not
been read at least once. This information is not stored during a folder jump.
Without this parameter, the default mode is the random mode SEQ.
●
[Vxx] - Sets the volume level of the folder
The name of the folder can include parameter to set the audio volume.
Example:
001 [V05] : Fix the volume to value 05
001 [V31] : Fix volume to maximum - Value 31
001 [V00] : Fix volume to minimum (mute) - Value 00
Fix the volume output when player start to read the folder
●
[NT] - This option defines the interruption mode of the current folder
If these options are registered in the folder name, the file cannot be interrupted and commands received
are ignored or executed.
Without this option, reading of the current folder/file can be interrupted at any time by an
external action. (input, RS485 ...)
Example:
001 [NT] - The folder is NOT interruptible.
In that case, an action on one of the input contacts or RS485 link is ignored and the reading of the current
file is not stopped. Caution! The action is not memorised and the triggering information is lost.
●
Specific behaviour :
- If an action refers to a folder which is absent, the command is ignored.
- If an empty folder (no file) is called but the folder name includes an option, this option will be executed.
If no option is indicated, the player goes to wait mode and display a wait screen.

I.D. AL - FLASH MPX HD - Full HD video Player - User Manual
6.2 - FAST MODE
6.2.1 - Operating mode and naming of files
- In this mode, the player will play a video segment instantly when an input is triggered.
- The player will play only a single file in the root, it will not play multiple files.
- After powering up, the player will seamlessly loop line 000 (see line 000 explanation below).
If you have a number of files that you want t o play using the input, use your video editing software to
combine these files together to create a new single file. This single file is basically a compilation of many
files (video segments) where each video segment is represented by playtime in seconds. You can then
assign different input to play these differe nt video segments.
You can start a segment using external input 1 to 7, using RS485 protocol from 0 to 9 or using
remote control (0 to 9)
Example: Suppose you have 4 different files, one in loop mode and 3 with trigger input:
Garden.mpg - 100 seconds long (loop file)
Fruit.mpg - 40 seconds long (input 1)
Vegetable - 120 seconds long (input 2)
Flower.mpg - 60 seconds long (input 3)
Use your video software editing program to combine these 4 files and create a single file e.g. Myvideo.mpg.
Inside this file, you actually have 4 video segments: Garden, Fruit, Vegetable, Flower.mpg. Total playtime
of this Myvideo.mpg is 100+40+120+60= 320 seconds long.
Jardin.mpg
Fruits.mpg Vegetable.mpg
Flower.mpg
Total = 320 seconds
Note:
When creating the new single file video, end each segment of the video into the nearest full second by
adding black screens.
Example :
If the original Garden.mpg is only 99.3 seconds, end this Garden.mpg segment at 100 seconds by adding
0.7 seconds of black screens. This segment is 100 seconds and starts at 0 sec and ends at 100
seconds.
After powering up, the player will seamlessly loop this Garden.mpg.
- If the original Fruit.mpg is only 39.7 seconds, end this Fruit.mpg segment at 40 seconds by adding 0.3
seconds of black screens. This segment is 60 seconds and starts at 100 sec and ends at 160 seconds.
- Same for the other segments.
