hello! i'm new here, looks like a great community!

i am planning to try the following:

a new mac pro to run a single video across 6 samsung displays each at 1080p. the single video is rendered at 11520x1080.

it looks like i'll have no problem doing a 6-monitor extended display using the mini-display outs, BUT i'm unsure what the best quality/ most stable software for running the video at full screen across all monitors is.

looking into arraysync. anyone have any tips for this?

Quoting Mazze:

Thanks for the quick reply and the explanation. It's working now (even if the video is stuttering sometimes, gonna play with video settings a bit to tweak it)!


Try using Apple Intermediate Codec for video and AAC for audio. Might work better than H.264 if that’s what you’re using (H.264 is extremely resource intensive).

Hmm that’s interesting. There is not a way to do that currently however a complete rewrite is in planning/creating stages so I can try to fit that in.

Thanks!

It is not, and I don’t recommend using it anymore. It’s really not necessary.

I'm doing some testing with trial version of ArraySync to make sure that this will work for my company. However, I am having issues with getting video to play on the external screen which is attached to my Retina MBP.

Any ideas?

That I could not explain, it's one of those situations where I'd have to be there to inspect all the devices and try to ascertain what's happening.

How about some specifics on the computer? CPU, RAM, HD, Year of manufacture and if you did a backup before updating (presumably to Yosemite)?

Intersting, I will have to double-check this on Mavericks for myself.

Are they perhaps stored on a network drive that is not being mounted at startup?

Thank you Turboladdade and Mark for your suggestions. I did check the System Preferences suggestion and there was nothing listed there to start up iTunes. I do have Applecare and am planning to take it to a Apple Store close-by. Thanking you for your input. Bernard

If you've chopped them up into five separate videos they should play fine. Is there anyway you can send a pic or video of what's happening exactly? Because I don't really understand what you're saying.

Also, are you using any video splitters like Matrox Triple Head? Because those probably won't work with ArraySync.

OK so this topic can be closed now.
I had to buy a new "Apple Magic Mouse" and the new one works.
Sometimes things do get broken. I did everything possible to avoid spending money, insulting reinstall of Mac OS from Recovery partition, installing upgrades and changing settings and following all other suggestions I could find, it didn't work. Even after installing (upgrading) memory from 4 GB to 16GB and upgrading OS to Mavericks then installing all the updates, this one problem persisted. I had a haunch it was a hardware problem because it worked partially.
But by trying to solve this one I did solve a lot of other problems on the way, like my printer which wasn't printing. I had to fix a wifi connection at home, upgraded the memory and OS, reinstalled another computer and solved problems there (laptop, Windows) so, all in all, something positive came out of it...I cleared all my IT-related issues. During this whole process, a lot of new countless issues came up and I solved them all so I learned a lot, but in reality, it is never ending learning process.

OK, this topic can be closed now.
Here are steps I've done to help other users:
Reinstalled the printer software.
1) download the latest printer software (including drivers) from Epson website (only found it on UK website, NL website didn't have it, I am in the Netherlands).
2) choose between wireless or via usb cable - in my case usb cable; plug it in and switch on the printer
3) removed the printer using "-" button (uninstall it temporary)
4) add the same printer using "+" button - it will show on the bottom, the least of available printers nearby
5) test print a page - it works

No, each computer only recognizes its own displays. They talk to each other over the network to synchronize video playback.

That's pretty unusual, none of those reasons would explain why only a specific segment of your video would play poorly but not the rest. What program are you using to encode your video? Is there any chance you can upload it somewhere like Dropbox or something so I can have a look?

I'm pretty sure Mac OS X can still read HFS and HFS+ drives. Do you have no possible access to a Mac? What sort of drive is this?

Hurray! That worked, and the files are still OK! So now I have to find a version between Premiere 5.1c and Premiere Pro 2.0 and see if I can open them in that... Thanks!

I'm saying you cannot use AIC on Windows at all. Apple never ported this proprietary production codec to Windows. QuickTime for Windows simply doesn't understand how to play them.

Can you describe what setup you're trying to achieve? If you're playing just one video, an H.264-encoded QuickTime or MP4 video should play fine. I'm not sure I understand what you're trying to setup that isn't working.

Hi Robin,
1) MacKeeper is not recommended by Mac community, there is no point installing or keeping it. I checked all files manually and there is almost no "trash" so to speak, Mac OS must take care of this on its own probably.
2) The problem is: MEMORY. Standard iMac comes with 4GB memory and unfortunately it is not enough. I made enquiry about my model (mid-2011) and I can have 16GB of memory. Bought 4x4 memory cards and going to replace it on my own. I got instruction from Apple site and it looks very easy so non-expert can do that. But first check your model to see if you can add memory by yourself (some models only by certified customer service which costs money), then how much memory makes sense for your model (for example I can have 32GB max but my model is only going to use 16GB so anything above it is a waste of money). Problem solved…

If you need any help I can send you the links to websites where to get more information. I learned something and I am willing to pass my knowledge now to others.

That's questionable, 8 different movies is asking a lot of any computer. I couldn't make any guarantee on your system if it would work right or not. Be sure to use Apple Intermediate Codec if you try it out.
