Re: Boblight possible?

And the other thing is that this new solution uses cpu even im not using raspbmc for video at all, it is always running and calculating screenshots... 24/7 (even if i turn on black screensaver to turn off the leds...)

Re: Boblight possible?

Did I read this can be overcome by using different configs? Not ideal I know, but the advantage of boblight-dispmanx if I understand correctly is that it works in all areas of XMBC, not just video playback? Advantage? Yes, but the subtitles also influence the leds, that's not ideal i think http://w...

Re: Boblight possible?

Could you explain how it works? How does it hook into the playing video to get the colours? Uses vc_dispmanx_snapshot. It grabs everything onscreen (video + UI) and downsamples it. Should be usable for omxplayer, xbmc, 3D, X, console - whatever is on screen. Do you have any idea how to configure bo...
