    • Use Start Increments, if the time increment between counts is equal.

    • Use Start Times, if the time increment between counts is variable. You will need to enter the time index to jump to for each count.

    • If you want to just play the enter video file, enter 0 for Start Increments and leave Start Times blank.
  5. If you want to play the audio in the video file, enable the "Enable Sound" setting. This will disable the countdown voice or beep.
  6. You can set the Display to either Fit or Fill. Fit will shrink and letterbox the video so you can see the entire video. Fill will zoom the video so there is no letterboxing.
  7. Enable the Fullscreen setting if you want to increase the video to fill the preview area.

If you video does not play, try re-encoding the video using H.264, The Adobe Media Encoder or some other video encoder utility can do this.
