So I have a modded Minecraft server that I'm opening up for only 1 month. I have a big screen to display movies and also host a special 12 hour YouTube video for an end of the server party. The problem is that when people leave the area, the YouTube video restarts when they come back because it's unloaded the screen. Is there a way I can keep the screen loaded so that people in the area can return to it and not have to restart the whole video? It's a little important to me that the video remains in sync for everyone has I have a few surprises in the video for them,
I have changed the config in the server but it appears to be more of a client-side problem. Is there some way at all I can at least stop the YouTube video from restarting all the way at the beginning? Thanks,
I should know what mod are you talking about, for testing or ar least to know how the mod adds the video into minecraft.
I mean, we can throw random suggestions, but doesn't know if they're going to work with your mod 😅
For example, if the screen of the mod works when the chunk is still being loaded on the server even if there's no players near, you can place the screen on the spawn cause that chunks are always loaded for some Minecraft reason.
Or else you can use this mod: https://www.curseforge.com/minecraft/mc-mods/chunk-loaders
That allows you to avoid unloading the chunks you choose.
But this methods will probably doesn't work if the video stream of the mod works on client side, cause even if the screen chunks are not unloaded of the server, the client will unload it anyways.
