TimeCodeManager is the class responsible for processing timecode for external playing media. This means anything not playing locally in QOrbiter. It can be accessed as a property by "dcetimecode"


Properties are accessed by: dceTimecode.propertyname
Property Name Property Type Signal Description Example
tcTotalTime int totalTimeChanged() the total time, in milliseconds of the current media Here i use the total time to calculate the time when dragging the seek bar back and forth
  property int slidertimer: (scroll_tab.x / scroller_transit.width) * dceTimecode.tcTotalTime
tcCurrentTime int timeChanged() the current position, in milliseconds
runningTimer double positionChanged() Used to constantly update the position of the seek bar as media advances By setting the x property to do a little math, I get the seek bar to advance across the transit as the media plays
x: ( dceTimecode.runningTimer / dceTimecode.tcTotalTime) * scroller.width
dragTime String dragTimeChanged() the time that the slider if implemented has been dragged to. Here, it is utilized in a popup that shows when a user drags the seek bar
Text {
           id: drag_label
           text: dceTimecode.dragTime
           anchors.centerIn: parent
qsTotalTime String totalStringTimeChanged() Total time of media, formatted in HH::MM::SS - updated every second
qsCurrentTime String stringTimeChanged() The current position of the media in HH:MM::SS - updated every second
stringPlaybackSpeed string sPlaybackSpeedChanged() Playback speed in string format
playbackSpeed int playbackSpeedChanged() Playback Speed in integer format


Signals not related to specific properties, but internal functions of the class itself

Signal Params Description
seekToTime(QString) String This signal is emitted when the dragging stops on the seek bar and the time to jump to in the stream is calculated. The string contains the time to jump to in milliseconds. This signal is normally connected to the dce function setMediaPosition(QString)


This is a unique class with no external functions as it does its business internally.
