JPEG Saver config — Video options dialog

« Return to JPEG Saver page

The “Video” checkbox on JPEG Saver's main tab enables the video loader - by itself, it loads the first frame of a video file as an image, displaying it in the same way as any other image. The “Options” button next to it takes you to this dialog where you can choose how JPEG Saver should deal with video files.

Video options dialog

Play video

This option enables playing video - with it unchecked JPEG Saver will only load the first frame of each video file and use it as a static image. The other video options are ignored when video playback is disabled.

JPEG Saver plays videos in a borderless window over the primary screen. This means that any items that would normally appear over the main image will not be visible (because they are behind the video window).

Repeat completed video

When this option is enabled, JPEG Saver will repeat any videos shorter than the image change delay. When not enabled, the video will close when complete and the first frame will be shown until the next image is loaded.

Wait for end of video

This option makes JPEG Saver wait for the end of the video before moving on to the next image (if the video is longer than the change delay). If used with the repeat option, the video will play through at least once.


This option allows you to choose between the Direct3D texture rendering method added in version 5.28, or use the older window-based video rendering.

The visible difference is that the D3D texture method allows JPEG Saver to draw text and other things on top of the video, whereas the window method opens a new window on top of JPEG Saver that is purely used for the video output.

Enable audio

This option enables playing audio with the video. If interactive keys are enabled then the audio can be muted and unmuted from within JPEG Saver using a hotkey, which defaults to <ctrl-down>.

Audio volume slider

This is a slider that allows you to pre-set the volume of the audio when videos play in JPEG Saver. The slider value adjusts the mixer volume for audio playback from JPEG Saver only, and not the master volume.

If interactive keys are enabled you can adjust the volume while the video is playing using hotkeys which default to <shift-up> and <shift-down>.
