Re: omxplayer play controls / input

Re: omxplayer play controls / input

Once it's built i'll post some screenies or a demo somewhere. It's just ugly text/html atm till i got the control interface sorted.

I'll see if i can put together an easy-install javascript/php for omxplayer

Re: omxplayer play controls / input

Ahhh now thats the method i was looking for! Bugger all this ssh-to-self malarkey! Will be rewriting to version 2 this weekend then! Easiest way to control over http would be set up a lamp server and use php to issue the shell commands via ajax requests from a browser. Working on my own implementati...

Re: omxplayer play controls / input

OK managed to get input into omxplayer from a separate process, albeit by a rather convoluted method. If anyone has any ideas about improving/streamlining the process please let me know, as i cant help but feel this method is somewhat wasteful... For reference this is the Debian img from the downloa...

Re: omxplayer - GPU enabled video player

I'm trying my hardest to avoid xbmc purely because I don't want the gui on the main display (the aim of my project is to get the gui running over http, and the main display just to show the video). Starting omxplayer from tty1 console accepts the space/pause command, but i cant figure out where to p...

Re: omxplayer play controls / input

cheers for the speedy reply dom, but keypresses alone don't seem to do anything... do i need to echo them to a display or a pipe or what? typing into an ssh shell alone wont/doesnt do anything surely?

Re: omxplayer - GPU enabled video player

There are a set of key-presses and effects in omxplayer.cpp, including p and space to pause, arrow keys to move, q to quit, s for subtitles and more that you can RTFS for. I'm probably missing something (and i installed from the deb referenced in this thread rather than building myself) but how exa...

I'm working on setting up a mediacentre controlled over http (through a smartphone web interface). Have successfully got omxplayer set up and running to play a video on command from the web server, however i can't seem to find any way to interact with the player while its running. Does omxplayer hav...
