We purchased a new laptop to use for projecting song lyrics, sermon slides and and other elements of the service.
Today was our first live trial.
I’m pleased to report that the problem I had before where Quelea would suddenly show output on Monitor 1 did not occur.
Unfortunately there was another problem.
The background videos loop, and when they hit the end of the loop, the text is truncated, and around 80% of the text is lost.
This laptop has only an HDMI output, and we’re using an HDMI to VGA adapter to get the signal to the projector.
I brought the laptop home, and connected it to a standard monitor, but I’m unable to reproduce the problem.
Edit: I left the same slide on screen for several minutes, and the video truncated even on my home monitor – but it took several loops before it occurred
If you click on another verse/chorus and back again, all is well – at least until you hit the end of a loop.
Here is what it looks like on screen:
