Hey guys,
We are heading to the Canterbury Software Summit next week and will be getting a TV to show our promo video on. The video is about 1:30 in length so we thus want it to continuously loop.

The show is on the Thursday and we arrive on Wednesday late afternoon. I was going to stop by the Warehouse (as it will be open) and buy a 32" - 39" TV for the stand. Do they support video looping does anyone know?;pgid=NsBmUeLgR2RSR0H7xPKIAFUK00009999cVkL;sid=qgQBlbSWryYHleCJLGMen6U6Ksfe137lbec=?SKU=1847528

We only want a cheap one as we will only use it for a day. It will also be the prize for our business card draw so if anyone is there make sure to come and visit the stand (Xtracta)!

I suppose you could always look at getting multiple copies of your video file and concatenate them into one longer video.
ie 60 x 1:30 would be 90 minutes.

How big is the video file and what sort file is it? mp4 mkv avi?

You would also need to make sure the file is a format the TV will play - cant see much on the internet about them.

This may depend on the specific model. We have used two Veon TVs for various purposes, one had a 'repeat' play mode for the media support, one did not. The one that did was a slightly newer model I believe, or at least, it was purchased several months after the first and looks slightly different.

I know Konka 40/42" TV's will cost the same amount and will repeat USB videos.
They're sold at DSE and Harvey's.

I've got 4 veon's in the shop doing exactly this - they just loop the video automatically
