Description:

Time is VLC extension that displays running time on the screen in a playing video.
(Extension script "time_ext.lua" + Interface script "looper_intf.lua")
Features:
- supported tags: [e], [efps], [d], [r], [t], [o], [n], [_];
- 9 possible positions on the screen;
- elapsed time with milliseconds;
- playback speed rate taken into account for duration time;

Time v2.x/v3 (intf)
Simple instructions:
1.) "time_ext.lua" > Copy the VLC Extension Lua script file into \lua\extensions\ folder;
2.) "looper_intf.lua" > Copy the VLC Interface Lua script file into \lua\intf\ folder;
3.) Start the extension in VLC menu "View > Time v3 (intf)" or "Vlc > Extensions > Time v3 (intf)" on Mac OS X and configure the Time interface to your liking.

** The Interface script can be activated from the CLI (batch script or desktop shortcut icon):
vlc.exe --extraintf=luaintf --lua-intf=looper_intf
** Otherwise the Extension script (First run: "Time > SETTINGS" dialog box) will help you to set appropriate VLC preferences for automatic activation of the Interface script or you can do it manually in VLC Preferences:
Tools > Preferences > Show settings=All > Interface \
\ Main interfaces: Extra interface modules [luaintf]
\ Main interfaces \ Lua: Lua interface [looper_intf]
* Then use the Extension ("Time" dialog box) to control the active Interface script.
The installed Extension is available in VLC menu "View" or "Vlc > Extensions" on Mac OS X.

Time v1.0
The extension works in VLC-2.0.x. VLC archive: http://download.videolan.org/vlc/

I like this add-on. Can I use it from commandline in a python script? I am working on a simple audiobook player for use by a blind person. I want to save position in the book and resume it later. Best wishes

Thanks mederi for releasing v3 for VLC 3 but I still see a minor issue. Could you check if it is just me or everyone else too? Steps to reproduce it:
Time format used: E:[O] -[R] [E]/[D]
1) open video
2) press f to enter fullscreen
3) press a to cycle through the aspect ratios settings
4) The time appears in center of the screen with a big black square background covering most of the video when it runs in these ratio settings: Default, 16:9, 4:3, 1:1, 16:10 and 5:4
5) The time appears correctly with no issues in these ratio settings: 2.21:1, 2.35:1, 2.39:1
6) The time appears correctly with no issues when video is not in fullscreen and in all aspect ratio settings.

I cannot reproduce the issue. I have no problem here with default settings in VLC 3 (win32.7z package, portable - "portable" subfolder within vlc folder). Try to reset preferences. What OS, VLC version? You could further investigate the issue: video format, different video output module, enable/disable hardware acceleration, check the logs. You can wait for VLC 3.0.1 whether it gets better or not. Then probably you need to file a bugreport at https://trac.videolan.org/vlc

Hi Mederi,
Many thanks for the plugin. Works like a charm for me on the latest version of VLC v2.2.6.

Want to bring to your attention, I was also using "VLC remote" by hobbyist software (https://hobbyistsoftware.com/vlc). I use it primarily to be able to control my VLC player for play/pause/playlist management etc. To my surprise, this suddenly stopped recognizing my VLC on my mobile(remote). I tried resetting preferences, and re-installing multiple times. But, with no luck. If Time 2.1 is installed, then "VLC remote" is not working, and if i run the "VLC remote helper", then Time v2.1 is not working.

Any insights for my enlightenment when you get some time here. Much appreciated.

Thanks again.. Nice work though.

Please check manually the enabled interfaces in VLC preferences (https://hobbyistsoftware.com/VLCSetup-win-manual) where the "[v] Web" is checked (on the first picture) and also the "[v] Lua interpreter" for the custom interface script of Time (the second picture: "Lua interface [looper_intf]" instead of "dummy"), so there are [luaintf:http] in the text input field there ("lua" is wrong, it must be "luaintf" string!). Please let me know.

Hi Medri, great add-on. I have a variable set up in time_ext.lua named as adjusted_time and I'm trying to use this variable in looper_intf.lua. Is there a way I could do it? Many thanks

Figured it out by myself. Using cfg.adjusted_time in time_ext.lua and config.TIME.adjusttime in looper lua. Again thanks for the clean code

Just one more question Medri. Is it still possible to add a custom shortcut like this one after VLC disabled callback function from 2.1. Many thanks https://addons.videolan.org/content/show.php/eplased_time_to_file.lua?content=159287&PHPSESSID=013d3bf41d6d8942c8715f091b257568

How remove seconds from time[T]? Show only hours and minutes?

You just need to edit the looper_intf.lua sctipt in a text editor. Find the following line:
local system_time = systemHour..":"..systemMinute..":"..systemSecond
Then simply remove seconds there:
local system_time = systemHour..":"..systemMinute

Let me clarify my previous comment for Win-7 x64, VLC 2.2.5.1 installation
As per the author's instructions:
1) extract (unzip) the time_ext.lua file and put it in VLC subdir C:\Program Files\VideoLAN\VLC\lua\extensions and
2) extract (unzip) the looper_intf.lua file and put it in VLC subdir C:\Program Files\VideoLAN\VLC\lua\intf
3) start the extension in VLC menu "View" and enable Time v2.1 (intf) and configure the Time interface to your liking.

For successful installation in Windows 7 x64 of this extension in VLC x64 version 2.2.5.1, copy:
1) looper_intf.lua and time_ext_lua to the C:\Program Files\VideoLAN\VLC\lua\extensions folder AND
2) to the C:\Program Files\VideoLAN\VLC\lua\intf folder
3) Start VLC -> go to View and enable Time v2.1 (intf) and configure the Time gui to your liking.

Thanks Mederi, I've successfully installed Time 2.1 in VLC 2.2.1 on XUbuntu 14.04 (32bit, hardware is a bit old, Atom CPU and 1GB RAM). Works well and I can configure which info to show and where; tried in window and fullscreen mode, everything goes well.

Hi meriri,

I got it to work in older version on mac now. I also managed to alter the script so it shows also milliseconds. The part which doesnt work is the alignement. I can only change this from within the source code.

PS what info do you need to het it possible working in version 2.2.2?

Id like to give feedback and help you possibly solve this issue
