due to some requests from the animation department i ve spent a lot of time trying to install and test some linux videoplayers like vlc, openshot, djv, smplayer, banshee, etc.
I’ve come to the conclusion that only the “melt” video engine meets all the requirements. But there is a downside: it has no GUI!!
we have to launch the video player like this: “melt <video1> <video2>” by typing this on the gnome-terminal
Ive made a maya GUI with python and pyside and my only concern now is launching the melt video player by pressing a GUI button.
So far i’ve tried:
command="melt path/to/video1" subprocess.call(shlex.split(command), shell=True)
also tried with:
also with Popen and system but can’t seem to get the correct grammar.
Also i’m thinking that maybe the problem is that i can’t run this as a maya subprocess, but that’s only an intuition.
Can you guys give me a hint?
