CasparCG Simple Playlist

It is possible to build a simple playlist as a rundown in the CasparCG client. It will very simply play each item after each other that are on the same layer. In this very simple post I show how to build such a playlist including the very important step of activating the OSC.

The Open Sound Control (OSC) implementation is how the client knows what the server is doing and then being able to send new command back to the server when a piece of media has ended to trigger playback of the next piece. For more details on the OCS, please see

"Hot Ice" opening at SouthGate - 13 September 2015

Last "knights" function at Southgate Mall for the opening of the "hot" ice rink was a singular experience. We had 5 Little Knights representing the club. The evening's events were opened by various dignitaries who spoke about the project to launch the synthetic ice rink as part of Ice Hockey South Africa's attempts to develop the sport. They are making a concerted effort to develop the sport to the Southern Part of Johannesburg.

The ice hockey players took the "ice" at 20:30 and played exhibition matches. The clubs who attended were Forest Knights, Pretoria Capitals, Ice Hawks and Vipers. Our Star Player of the evening was Joshua Grant, who scored 3 goals against the Viper Goalie.
