I don’t have a laptop. Well, I do but it’s on my pedalboard, it’s mission critical, and I don’t want it to be too promiscuous. It’s gonna stay where it is.
If I were to take a thumb drive containing an mp4 video to a meeting, to play on whatever they have there, which would probably be a laptop….
Can I reasonably expect that the F5 key toggles the video output on the laptop like it did on the laptops where I used to work, or is that a feature that was unique to them? It’s really gauche to have the audience look at your desktop and watch you groping around in it to find the player and find the file and start them up and hope that everything works. The ritual is inevitable but I don’t need to display it.
