Mederi - Thank you for the reset preferences suggestion. The issue is gone now. Feb 15 2018
Excellent extension Feb 12 2018
Thanks mederi for releasing v3 for VLC 3 but I still see a minor issue. Could you check if it is just me or everyone else too? Steps to reproduce it:
Time format used: E:[O] -[R] [E]/[D]
1) open video
2) press f to enter fullscreen
3) press a to cycle through the aspect ratios settings
4) The time appears in center of the screen with a big black square background covering most of the video when it runs in these ratio settings: Default, 16:9, 4:3, 1:1, 16:10 and 5:4
5) The time appears correctly with no issues in these ratio settings: 2.21:1, 2.35:1, 2.39:1
6) The time appears correctly with no issues when video is not in fullscreen and in all aspect ratio settings. Feb 12 2018
Extension has stopped working correctly with VLC 3.0.0 Feb 10 2018
Let me clarify my previous comment for Win-7 x64, VLC 2.2.5.1 installation
As per the author's instructions:
1) extract (unzip) the time_ext.lua file and put it in VLC subdir C:\Program Files\VideoLAN\VLC\lua\extensions and
2) extract (unzip) the looper_intf.lua file and put it in VLC subdir C:\Program Files\VideoLAN\VLC\lua\intf
3) start the extension in VLC menu "View" and enable Time v2.1 (intf) and configure the Time interface to your liking. May 15 2017
For successful installation in Windows 7 x64 of this extension in VLC x64 version 2.2.5.1, copy:
1) looper_intf.lua and time_ext_lua to the C:\Program Files\VideoLAN\VLC\lua\extensions folder AND
2) to the C:\Program Files\VideoLAN\VLC\lua\intf folder
3) Start VLC -> go to View and enable Time v2.1 (intf) and configure the Time gui to your liking. May 15 2017
