    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
  4. 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!

    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
  7. 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!
  8. Hello, I am trying to update watchpax2 from version 6.1.5 to 6.1.6. The watchout gives the message about different versions and if I want to update. I click ok. The watchpax displays this message: "The WATCHOUT license key can`t be found. Re-trying automatically in a few seconds." If I click "Retry" (with the keyboard connected to watchpax) nothing happens. I tried to swith watchpax on and off, restart watchout etc, but with no result. Thank you for any help, Jakub

    WO Remote

    Hello everyone, Our company's been running a few tests with a few different machines and versions of Watchout 5 / 6, and we've noticed that the WO Remote (https://www.dataton.com/files/watchout/remote) doesn't work on v6. Can somebody confirm this feature is deprecated? Thanks!

    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
  11. Hey all, trying to do some testing for an installation project utilizing (8)Watchout Display servers.... eventually, a crestron control system will manage and trigger WO Timelines etc...targeting different display clusters. Right now, i'm trying to test by controlling a production computer from another PC via a network and telnet on the PC (i.e, Production version of WO is not on same PC as telnet commands) everything is working great, so far. One question though: There will be certain Cues that i've made that i need to jump to a new time position and play the timeline. Is there way to send a ' gotoControlCue' command , and a 'Run' command simultaneously in telnet to the Watchout PC? Thanks for any advice!
  12. Hello everyone, What's the difference between WATCHOUT and Pandora's Box? I keep getting asked the question more and more when I'm meeting potential clients or AV companies for the first time. Some have not heard of WO and others use Pandora exclusively but are looking for alternatives. I'm a big fan of WO and have been using it for 11 years to produce impressive events. I've never had an opportunity to operate a Coolux solution or speak in depth with a Pandora programmer, so what I understand is only what I've read and watched in online tutorials. that's why I find it difficult to answer the question with any confidence. Anyone in the WO world that has some market differentiators? Any financial reason why AV companies would choose one over the other? Is pre-production and content planning important to clients anymore? This is what I think I know. WO uses an easy timeline-based approach to programming content. Pandora seems very clunky as a GUI and requires deeper technical knowledge to operate. WO Computers are not proprietary so typically they cost less to own and operate. WO works best when advance pre-production is used. Pandora can operate more on the fly. WO is a presentation tool, Pandora is a playback tool. I know I'm missing a ton of differentiators and my comments above may be incorrect, so If you could contribute your ideas I think it would be helpful to all WO users. Thank you in advance

    QuickTime for Windows

    Hi, I just got an e-mail from my University IT security group, that they recommend everyone (at the university) to uninstall Apple QuickTime for Windows, since Apple Ends the Support, References: https://www.us-cert.gov/ncas/alerts/TA16-105A http://blog.trendmicro.com/urgent-call-action-uninstall-quicktime-windows-today/ http://zerodayinitiative.com/advisories/ZDI-16-241/ http://zerodayinitiative.com/advisories/ZDI-16-242/ http://www.theregister.co.uk/2016/04/14/uninstall_quicktime_for_windows/ The IT security group also recommend not to use the QuickTime Alternative (uninstallation is recommended), since it hasn't been updated since 2010. How will this affect WATCHOUT? I guess if WATCHOUT Display is located in a network with no or limited access to the internet, then the problem isn't that big. But most WATCHOUT Production is on computers that is being used for other things and might often be connected to internet. I don't recommend any WATCHOUT customers to uninstall QuickTime, but to think on the risk and wait for Datatons recomendation (and hopefully some replacement).

    WATCHOUT, WATCHNET and Autostart.txt

    Hi, I'm not sure how to use Autostart.txt when running WATCHOUT on two (or more computers) in the same cluster and I also run WATCHNET on a separate computer. I'm currently running WO 6.0.2 and WN 1.1. Should I have the same autostart.txt in the all WATCHOUT computers in the same cluster? authenticate 1 setLogoString "The show will begin shortly..." delay 5000 load "MyShow" wait run I'm only using "setLogoString" to show that the autostart.txt is loaded and used. The reason I'm asking, is that I sometime have problem to get WATCHNET to work, I guess it's depending on in which order I start the computers. And I haven't found any information in the forum, when it comes to running on several computers. Any help is appreciated!

  20. Hi everybody! I`m new to Watchout, but have experience with a lot of other mediaservers. In our next show we are final using Watchout with two display computers with 3 outputs each, running 1920x1200 on each output. I`m really looking forward to start using Watchout. Our computers have been used for other mediasoftware and are quite up to date. The only thing we need to upgrade is our graphics card. I`ve read a lot of forum posts, and Datatons recommendation for graphics card 2015, but I`m still a bit confused. With this post, I`m hoping you all could help me to get a better overview of how Watchout uses the different GPU`s, what specifications of a graphic card is important, and pros and cons for professional vs consumer cards. I know this has been heavily debated, but I`m hoping we could summarize everything in this post. Here are my questions: - It seems AMD FirePro line is widely recommended. But what are the benefits except that is professional? Better components? Better drivers? More stable drivers? Other things? - As I understand it, Watchout is using DirectX. Would a gaming card that scores high in gaming DirectX performance be good for Watchout or is other functions of DirectX that is more important? (most of the reviews on graphics card is tested on games) - Does the FirePro line have any performance benefits over high spec consumer card? For example the AMD FirePro W7100 versus NVIDIA GTX 980Ti? (about same price range) Or is it basically stability your paying for? - I `ve been building mediaservers for quite some time and have always used NVIDIA cards. And a least, for a couple of years back, it was widely accepted that NVIDIA had better and more stable drivers than AMD/ATI. Word on the Internet has that AMD drivers has improved over the last years. Any thoughts on this? - If we don`t go down the pro line, but are opting for a high end gaming card, any thoughts on GTX 980Ti versus AMD Fury? Or is better to go a step down to GTX970/AMD 390X? Looking forward to hearing your explanations and experience! Best Regards, Einar
