Current Time as Variable/Video Time Countdown


Without using custom scripts:

Is there a way to display the current time as a user variable?

Is there a way to display the remaining time of a video as a user variable?

Here is the Presentation Setup:

Three Videos are looping on a BS player and sends UDP packets to a different player (which is acting as a kiosk displaying the information for the video on view) every time a new video starts. The kiosk displays a countdown timer for the remaining time of the video on view, and also displays the time the next video(s) will being playing (figured I'd add the length of the current video plus the time it started playing).

Is any of this possible without using custom scripts?

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    I also have the same question. This is very useful feature for visitors watching films from the beginning to end at art exhibitions. Remaining time would allow them to predict the new start point. Otherwise, they just come and go randomly

    The features mentioned here are not available out of the box and would need to be scripted.
