is anyone pleased with media shout 6?
I had to upgrade from 4 to 6 and found this program non intuitive, unresponsive and a royal pain in the but even after 60 plus days of use. Problems galore For the record, my experience of MS6 is very good, it far outstrips previous versions.
The trick in learning about MS6 when coming from previous versions, I found, was to completely forget how you did things in previous versions and come to MS6 with no baggage from previous versions, it's easier to pick up that way. I did take some time to...
Is there any way to rearrange the different sections on the workspace? It kind of drives me crazy.
I want to be able to make some things smaller, like the menu bar, and just move things around. Is that possible? Hey there,
In MediaShout 6, you can adjust some of the sections and dividers to make certain parts larger or smaller. Some other things, like the ribbon at the top and the Fire Control buttons, cannot be moved, however.
Once you make your adjustments, go to the Settings Tab to sa...
Song Select Not Working
We're not sure what happened but our link to Song Select stopped working. We are no longer able to try and reconnect it (yes, the subscription is active) and when we do, we get a popup window with this error...

I've searched the Internet, Song Select site and forums and I'm not finding anything. Any suggestions? We've reinstalled Media ...
Keep getting "Recover new media" upon start up.
How can I get a clean startup? Hey Pervy,
So that I don't miscommunicate, can you give me the reason for wanting a startup and what you are wanting specifically? I'll be happy to help! I keep getting "recover new script on the ribbon. See file attached
I don't see anything attached. II

I'm still using MS6 and a few videos will not load at all. MS just closes upon inserting into the script. In searching for a fix, everything points to the K-lite codec pack, which I have, but it still says 11.3. K-lite updated to 15.x.x on Dec 29. Can I update the codec pack or is 11.3 the only thing that will work with MS6? PLUS... on tweaking codecs the png's are missing. https://mediacomplete.ladesk.com/492990-Tweaking-the-Codec-Settings Hey Tim,
You'll want to stay on 11.3.0. Yes, we are aw...
All Monitors Going to Black Intermittently
We have Mediashout 6 running on a Windows 10 machine. Our setup is the program operation monitor, a confidence monitor and two display monitors at the front.
We are experiencing the various monitors going black at different, seemingly random times. Sometimes it is just the monitor displaying the program, sometimes the confidence monitor, sometimes both. Less frequently the display monitors, either one, goes black. It only lasts for a second before returning. It does not seem to correspond with ...
PowerPoint Slideshow timer bug
When importing a PowerPoint show into a script, the advance time value is set to manual by default. If I set that value to Timed, I can set the timer value. However, the script plays each timed slide for 5 seconds, regardless of the timer value. While 5 seconds is consistent with the default value set in General Settings / Script / Auto-Advance Duration, is does not appear to be controlled by it. Changes to that setting does not change the reported behavior. The timing can be set for all pag...
Can't get Transition: Cut to work
Since the most recent update to MediaShout, the transition has defaulted to dissolve between cues. However, if I want to change it back to "Cut", it doesn't work. It dissolves like normal. I've tried setting the dissolve time to "0" which seems to cause it to go back to 3 for some reason.
Is anyone else experiencing this issue? Again, this is only between cues - not pages. I am able to set it to "Cut" and MediaShout saves this setting, but in practice, when you fire it - it does not cut. Hey ...
What is the best size (dimensions) of a pic so that it fills the whole frame?
Everyone I insert has to be resized by stretching my image, not good. If the pictures you are inserting are all in the same format (3x4 or 16x9) as you are presenting in, and in the same orientation (landscape), the ideal resolution would be the same as your Main Display, very likely 1280x720 (recommended 16x9) or 1024x768 (recommended 4x3). If you are entering one image per cue, you can avoid having to stretch to fit...
