I’m a brand new user, I discovered the solution 2 days ago. I went throught a lot of videos and tutorials but I still need help to figure it out how to configure HassOS 4.15 0.116.4 in the most efficient way.
For a project, I need to play 2 different music files (they can be triggered independently), mixed them together and stream them over HTTP.
To do that, I’m using 3 different instances of VLC running on a windows machine, 2 for independent playback outputting to a virtual output. Then the virtual output is routed to a virtual input used by the 3rd instance to transcode and stream over HTTP. That part is working like a charm except for the 2 seconds delay to transcode the stream.
So far, I managed to control the 2 different playback instances of VLC remotely under Home Assistant using the vlc_telnet platform.
First thing that I’m trying to do is to be able to launch remotely a batch file, to run the VLC instances, using a switch. I’m struggling to find a proper solution. The documentation nor examples on the Internet are not really user friendly and self-explanatory but if you can give me some clues, I’ll be grateful.
Second thing, less important, would be to go further in the playback management. I would love to manage to lower the volume of the first media file for few seconds while playing the second. I’m looking for the events and scripts but I’m not at this step yet.
Looking for your inputs!
