  1. Watchout 6.2. Sound Problems

    Hey together, having 3 XI-Media Server with Marian Seraph AD2 Sound-Card and Nvidia Quadro M5000. Watchout Version 6.2.0. When i play a Quick Time MOV with HAP Codec, i have some strange Click noise in Audio. not often and not loud, but so loud that i can not use it. With same File in MP4, I dont have the Problem. But i need to use the HAP files. Restart Computer does no effect. The Sound-Card Settings i checked. Also all other Windows Sounds are all right. Anyway, these Click-Noise comes out of both Server. So the Problem is anywhere in Watchout. Now i did a downgrade to version 6.1.4. and i dont have the Problem anymore. Any Solution for this ? becouse basicly Version 6.2. is nice and i would like to use ;-) best, felix
  2. Hi, we're line testing and shaking out our new Watchout rig, and the Display machines are taking commands and displaying most of the monitors. However, we are unable to 'manage' them using the VNC service built in. We can remotely shut them down, etc but the VNC throws an error of unable to connect to service. Is this easily fixable? I am a few hours away from just installing TightVNC and throwing my hands up. I need to get this working. Any info would be appreciated!

  4. Watchout 5 & 6 Test Videos

    Hello, Does anyone have demanding WATCHOUT files to stress test computers running WATCHOUT 5 or 6? Looking for Videos and Graphics of various formats to run tests on multiple screens. Any leads will be highly appreciated. Thank you
  5. Hello, I'm building an application in which there are 2 major components: a python server, which will send telnet commands to WATCHOUT WATCHOUT Production (Version 6.1.7b2) Although most of the telnet commands were successfully sent to WATCHOUT, sometimes I could continuously see a mystery error which makes me feel a bit worried: [0]Error 7 0 "Application in modal state (eg, a modal dialog)" I've checked the documentation and the "7" here means: "General Runtime Error. Other errors, not covered by any of the above cases. Always described further by a string as the second parameter, as well as further information in the third parameter (optional)." So I guess my questions are: What does the "Application in modal state" mean? Is there anything that I should / should not do to avoid this error? Thanks in advance!
  6. MIDI controller automation

    HI, I've connected a MIDI controller (Novation Zero SL MKII) to my production, I've assigned CC to some tween (scale, position ecc ...) and I can change values of this tween with the controller, but I can't make any automation. If i use the controller to make an automation, the watchout doesn't record the values of the keyframe. Thank you all

  15. h.265 ?

    Hi all, I searched the forum but couldn´t find an answer: Doese WO6 support h.265 ? Thanks in advance....
  16. Our office has been using Watchout version 5.1 for many projects and for many years. The issue is that our USB holding the license is old and has been used many times and is beginning to fail. How can we buy or replace the USB with a new one so our license can be valid? Often we use Watchout for performances, so immediate online registration of the key is not possible because we wouldn't have access to Wi-Fi from the stage. Therefor, we need the license key on a USB. Can we buy a new USB with our license key on it? SIDE NOTE* I arrived in the office 1 year ago and the key and license we have been using is already three years old. I'm not sure if it is possible to locate the original purchase! Our office is in China and we used a Chinese seller to buy the program. We've been using the USB and key for many years... Many thanks!

  25. Display- Edit Startup Script?

    Hello everyone! Just upgraded to v5 and working on configuring my setup. One problem I'm having is with the new startup script option for Watchout Display. I'm able to remotely power up/down the computers but I cannot get Display to launch at startup. When I go to edit the startup script, the file is empty. I looked through the documentation and did not see an answer. Any help would be appreciated, thanks!
