I'm hosting a party, and I want to play random sequences from a collection of movies in the background. I don't want to sit and edit together five hours of footage by hand though. Ideally I would:
x minutes from a random point in one random movie, then play
x minutes from a random point in another random movie, and so on. Any sensible scheme is fine though.
If you have any suggestions on where to start, either on Linux (preferable) or on Windows, I'd appreciate some ideas. I'm happy to script this in almost any language if needed.
