Ever wondered if you could tweak the guts of a ProPresenter 5 song file to make bulk changes? Yep, it’s possible. Nope, it’s not easy. Take a look.[tweet “Ever wondered if you could tweak the guts of a ProPresenter 5 song file? Possible. Yep. Easy? Nope.”]
Basically, what we’ve got is an XML file. I used to write XML in the dark ages of podcasting back in 2005. I thought that would make it easy. It doesn’t. Since, I’m reverse engineering the file format (I have no prior knowledge), there are a lot of things that are a mystery to me like how text works, and what some of the tags do. Others are pretty obvious, but take a look at the video to see for sure.
