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
Here is the debug error I see:
