I have lots of short video clips taken with my camera so I was very pleased to see of clipShow beta for Windows Media Center.

clipShow is a Windows Vista Media Center application that provides the ability to view a personal video collection in a slide-show type fashion. It features a "clip" capability that can play continuous random clips of video media (customizable by 30 seconds, 60 seconds, 90 seconds, or the entire video). It also provides the capability to create custom playlists from the Media Center video library. In addition it also can organize a video media collection by common tags stored in the video file metadata, and allow clips to be played by those tags.

It looks like an application that I could put to use as most of the video clips never get shown unlike my photos which are display on a digital photo frame. The application and source code are available on codeplex in 32bit and 64bit flavours, don’t forgot that it’s only a beta.

  1. Looks nice! Could this be used for something like a Music Video collection to play them continuously? If so, I wouldn’t mind. I’ve always wanted to be able to just stream music video while working around the house.
