Re: Boblight possible?

This settings seems to be used by boblight-X11, (http://code.google.com/p/boblight/wiki/Compiling) in this case I don't think it is usefull for us.

This options are defined in options.h, and set with SetOption in boblight_client.cpp for all lights (if param "lightnr" <0).

Re: Boblight possible?

Your last modifications solve the issue ! Thank you ! My config : Raspberry Pi model B 256M (OC 950MHz) WS2801 strip on the Pi Boblight with build in support of the WS2081 (or popen with a C program) With boblight and omxplayer on the Pi the CPU load is 75% average with Big Buck Bunny 1920x1080 .

Re: Boblight possible?

Hello, First, thank you so much Stasik0 ! I was waiting for you since a long time ! :) I tested your multithreaded version and seems better : bravo ! I think i have the same problem as VZoltan: my boblightd on the rpi works great with XBMC on another PC (with XBMC boblight plugin), but when I run yo...

Re: RaspiLight (ambient light)

For the moment, no, because you can't take screenshot on the raspberry while playing video.
You need a PC with XBMC and a raspberry for lights

Re: RaspiLight (ambient light)

I use boblight daemon on the raspberry and XBMC boblight plugin on the client (ubuntu) to display lights in my project, so yes, the boblight plugin can make capture and it works great ! But as I told you, when XBMC runs on the rpi (with the boblight plugin and the daemon), it can't make capture of t...

Re: RaspiLight (ambient light)

I think it is just not possible to grab frame while a video is playing. I managed to make it works with another PC running XBMC (like you) but not with xbmc and lights on the Rpi. With raspbmc, when grabbing frames during video playback, it is the frames behind the video (XBMC UI for 1 or 2 frames a...

Re: RaspiLight

@smokie75 : Yes, but you can't access to the framebuffer to take screenshot during playback because the video is directly decoded by the GPU ... so it will not work
If anyone have an idea how to take screenshot with omxplayer or access the framebuffer, it will help !

Re: RaspiLight

At first, I used the bcm2835 GPIO library (http://www.open.com.au/mikem/bcm2835/) but LEDs flickered (probably because of bad delay between data words). Now I use this kernel (with spi driver) and everything works fine. You can try with this file : http://download.analog.com/27516/forummessage/9/1/3...
