JakobSke writes "I am currently living in Sweden working for a small local TV Station. At the moment, we are so low-tech, that we use a DVD player set to continous repeat to air our broadcast. What this means is that I have no control over WHEN programs are airing, and have no means to update the content aired without disconnecting the entire broadcast and starting it over with the new content embedded into the single DVD. What I need is a program that will automate different video files to play at certain, predetermined time, and have the ability to update the playlist during playback. Does such a program even exist? I have done the reasearch, but there does not seem to be any viable solutions for low-budget stations. I have no wish to spend upwards of 10,000 US dollars for a pre-packaged broadcasting system that could just as easily be obtained with a standard PC (with video card) and clever software solutions."
