Someone created an new front end for cabinets. He says he created to handle 4k videos. Apparently, it is possible to have video previews of the playfield/backglass/dmd on some programs. He says it is pretty basic and is still testing it so there may be some bugs:

Hi George,

This application/front end is also worth watching...

Interesting. I have heard of PinUP Player but not PinUP Popper.

I actually just have a desktop PC and just create a folder of shortcuts to my favorite tables using the method described here:

Thanks Gin. Looks very nice! This looks fantastic and supports 4k video.

I think Terry said that PinUp Player is being incorporated into PinUp Popper?

I was thinking we might use PinUp Player on desktop PCs to play video during games instead of having to add individual frames into FP. Is that still going to be possible?

Hi George,

From what I have read / seen, I believe that we should be able to add a video (screen) as an overlay on the Desktop... so would have thought so.

Just awaiting a beta release to test it out (along with it's other functionality) :-)
