Zeus Video Player
by Zeus81
There are already many scripts to play video out there but this one is a little different in that it works in fullscreen too...
And have some other features.

- No screen flickering.
- Doesn't break fullscreen mode, F1 and F12.
- Can center or fit to screen videos with a different resolution.
- Optionally can quit before the end by pressing Enter/Escape.
- Pauses when focus is lost.
- You can choose the background image of the player (in case your video doesn't fill all the space)
It will automatically load the image named 'ZeusVideoPlayer' if found in Pictures folder.

If you're searching for a format that should play on almost all computers you may check this link : http://support.microsoft.com/kb/899113

How to Use
Graphics.play_movie( filename, cancellable, fit_to_screen )
- filename = path of the video file.
- cancellable = true if you want to allow the player to stop the video by pressing Enter or Escape, false otherwise.
This option can be omitted and default value is true.
- fit_to_screen = true if you want the video to be stretched to fit the screen in case it doesn't match, false if you just want it to be centered.
If you're using scripts like Fullscreen++ true is recommended.
This option can be omitted and default value is true.
ex : Graphics.play_movie( "Movies/prout.avi", true, true )
or Graphics.play_movie( "Movies/prout.avi" )

Very nice script. It works in VX too but there are some placing bugs when not in fullscreen.

Huh I though it would crash on VX haha, but yes that's normal (because it's for XP).

I'll do a little update to make it work on both versions.

Actually, it crashed if I swapped it to fullscreen to window or vice versa in VX.

I'm also actually making my own video player too but in either mpeg or ogv format.

I think, I'm quitting making my own video player because yours was very awesome without any "Game.exe has stopped unexpectedly". It also works for most file types, too.

Awesome! I'll consider using this in my game and give you credit accordingly. I need a good movie script.

You use the insert script command in events and you write in it :

Graphics.play_movie(path, cancelable, fit)path = path of the avi file

cancelable = true if we want to allow to stop the video before its end, or false

fit = true if we want the video to be stretched to fit when not in 640x480, false if we want it to be centered.

example :

Graphics.play_movie("Movies/prout.avi", true, true)

It's up to you to choose it.

If you do : Graphics.play_movie("file.avi", true, true)

It'll search file.avi in your game's root folder.

If you do : Graphics.play_movie("Movies/file.avi", true, true)

It'll search file.avi in the Movies folder.

If you do : Graphics.play_movie("Banana/file.avi", true, true)

It'll search file.avi in the Banana folder.

Yeah, I thought that it is like that :) However, I can´t get the xcript working, it keeps saying -syntax error while reading it :( All i have to do is add it as a new script, no other script changes necessary, or?

i love my game very much
Uh, I'm probably overthinking this, but I think that some of my music sounds kinda...bad?
The melodies are just sort of awkward, and don't flow.
I'm really not sure what to do. Why am I even worrying about this? I don't even have a battle system yet!
And the Lord said, let there be lighting effects! And there were lighting effects! And it was good...ish? Might tweak this some more.
Today was a day of good things! Thank you fate! I pray to the darkness that those that read this will enjoy a good day as well! Power to the gam mak.
