Schedule player copy function

The Scheduled Player is kind of a workaround added due to info-beamer not having any kind of native scheduling or playlists for a long time. That has changed recently (see scheduling and playlists). Both of those features are vastly superior to what was implemented in the Scheduled Player. The near term goal is to utilize all those abilities in a new package that aims to replace the Scheduled Player for most use cases. This will then allow you to…

  • …make changes to playlists once in a central place and have those changes reflected in multiple setups immediately.
  • …use the new scheduling for more expressive rules.

while also

  • have synced playback across multiple devices as well as content video-walled over multiple screens.
  • hopefully being able to use a less klunky UI compared to the Scheduled Player.
