Help wanted automating a video playlist to start and end at a specific time and date

Hello all,

Total newbie here - to the forum and to Macs. I need help! I’m currently trying to program a Mac to do the following:

At 6 p.m. a secondary monitor connected to my Mac will turn on from a dark screen state and play a playlist (single video, repeated 4 times). After the playlist is complete I want the secondary monitor to go dark and not mirror my display.

  • I would like this to happen automatically Thursdays through Saturdays.
  • I would also like the screen on the secondary monitor to remain black before and after the screening of the playlist.

Is this achievable with the Automator?
