I want to use VLC dotnet to develop a video management software for personal use. VLC is a good idea to take the different format Video snapshot.
I want take 4 snapshot each video. Unfortunately, player.GetMedia().Duration.TotalSeconds is always -0.001 that means media has not set to the player.
But I use player.play() that is work. How come?
I pull the Vlc dotnet from VS 2015 NuGet Package Manager. Less reference was found in internet so that ask for help in this platform. Hope anyone give me a hand.
Here is my code
Vlc.DotNet.Core.VlcMediaPlayer player = new Vlc.DotNet.Core.VlcMediaPlayer(new System.IO.DirectoryInfo("C:\\Program Files (x86)\\VideoLAN\\VLC"));
Vlc.DotNet.Core.VlcMedia media = player.SetMedia(new System.IO.FileInfo(videoFullPath));
double len = player.GetMedia().Duration.TotalSeconds;
interval = (int)(len * 0.95) / 4;
int counter = 0;
for (int i = 0; i < len; i = i + interval)
player.Position = i;
storagePath + "\\" + screenShotPrefix
+ "\\screenshot_" + counter.ToString() + counter.ToString() + ".jpg"
), 320, 240);
