    Hi All,

    I've been doing some shows where I alternate between using Beyond for short laser/A/V/Smoke control and pure projections for long films. I did it this way as I thought VLC/Plex is "safer" for pure film projection.

    But I'm wondering whether it would be reliable enough to use Beyond for everything.
    This would entail up to 6 laser/A/V shows of up to 5 mins each (ie laser/AV/DMX tracks) followed by a pure movie show on a single AV track for up to 3 hours.

    Has anyone done anything similar, or what's the max length AV track used?

    Obviously I could (and will) try it but even if it works once doesn't mean it will work reliably next time.
    Whereas I know Plex and VLC have been totally reliable so far, even over a local network.

    Any help/experience/advice gratefully received.

    There are multiple projects running in the world where there are long video's running from BEYOND. I would not expect any problems.
