repeatCount

The repeatCount attribute specifies the number of times that an element is repeated.

Syntax

repeatCount = Numeric-value | "indefinite"

Remarks

The WMS SMIL Playlist Parser plug-in enforces case sensitivity on the repeatCount attribute.

This attribute must be one of the following values.

Value Description
numeric value A numeric value that specifies how many times the element repeats. All fractions are rounded up. For example, 2.1 is rounded up to 3.
indefinite The element repeats indefinitely, subject to the constraints of the parent time container.

The repeatCount element can be used to repeat a single media element or an entire time container.

Example Code

In the following example, assume that Audio.wma has a 5-second simple duration. It is repeated twice, and the total active duration is 10 seconds.

<?wsx version="1.0"?>
<smil>
    <media src="c:\wmpub\wmroot\Audio.wma" repeatCount="2" />
</smil>

In the next example, Audio.wma is played three times before being stopped by the dur attribute of the smil element.

<?wsx version="1.0"?>
<smil dur="15s">
    <media src=" c:\wmpub\wmroot\Audio.wma " repeatCount="1000" />
</smil>

In the next example, Audio.wmv is repeated four times. If the value you specify for the repeatCount attribute is not an integer, it is rounded up.

<?wsx version="1.0"?>
<smil>
    <media src=" c:\wmpub\wmroot\Audio.wma " repeatCount="3.1" />
</smil>

You can also use the repeatCount attribute to repeat an entire time container. In the following example, the playlist is repeated three times and the total duration is 3*(10+20+30)=180 seconds.

<?wsx version="1.0"?>
<smil repeatCount="3">
    <media src=" c:\wmpub\wmroot\Audio_1.wma " dur="10s" />
    <media src=" c:\wmpub\wmroot\Audio_2.wma " dur="20s" />
    <media src=" c:\wmpub\wmroot\Audio_3.wma " dur="30s" />

</smil>
