Re: Pi Presents: Beta of a major upgrade now available

Dear Ken,

Are those issues only with the most recent version of OMXplayer? I only experience some corruption at the end of a video-file (is this known?)

Dear Ken,

Your suggestion worked! Just adding .mov did the trick

Re: Pi Presents: Beta of a major upgrade now available

Dear Ken,

Using the command-line to start a .mov file using omx works. It seems to be a "problem" with Pi-presents

Re: Pi Presents: Beta of a major upgrade now available

Dear Ken, I noticed that pi-presents uses omx-player, but somehow pi-presents doesn't open video-files with the .mov extension. Changing the extension to avi usually does the trick, but i think it should be possible to play files with an .mov extension right from the start. Just some feedback from a...

To clarify: I never encountered this problem in the past. I reinstalled "pi presents -beta", put other files on the /media/USB and still i get this problem

So it is possible to automatically scale images now in the liveshow? Sounds great!

Re: Pi Presents: Beta of a major upgrade now available

Dear Ken,

I edited /etc/default/unclutter, adding

Code: Select all

-grab
and

Code: Select all

-noevents

That seemed to do the trick.

Many thanks

Re: Pi Presents: A display package for museums & visitor cen

Dear Ken, The Live-show from 2 locations works great, there is only one issue: Pi Presents plays the files in the live-show in alphabetic order, but does not play them in alphabetic order when playing from 2 locations. For example: If i have file A C F in location 1, and B and D in location 2, it pl...

Re: Pi Presents: A display package for museums & visitor cen

Dear Ken

I experimented with a partial solution. I made a liveshow (for images) 'in' a media-show (with videos) using your editor. Is it possible to stop the live-show from looping so that the whole show (normal + liveshow) repeats?

Best regards

Just use the -b parameter.

Code: Select all

python /home/pi/pipresents/pipresents.py -p pp_mediashow -b
Make sure

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install x11-xserver-utils
is installed.

The new version with the live-show works fantastically well :D . The only issue i have is scaling of images. Is it possible to auto-scale to the monitor/display resolution?. Many thanks!
