Re: seamless looping

I decided to get a little bit tricky tonight and created a new shell script based on the following code: http://www.cenolan.com/2013/03/looping-video-playlist-omxplayer-raspberry-pi/ I then put the script in init.d and now my Pi loops video automatically on startup and I can have various videos on t...

Re: seamless looping

I had another play around with the Pi tonight. I turned off auto logon to the GUI and went back to the command prompt and tried running my files on the USB stick. All of my .mpg music video clips that could have been on my hard drive for the past 10 years, didn't work when I played them individually...

Re: seamless looping

Hi Nick, I'm at work at the moment, but plan on writing a step by step guide on what I did for my installation. Due to my current error, I was also planning on wiping my card and doing everything from scratch for a "clean" install. To download the Huceke version, my first step was to type:...

Re: seamless looping

Wow, very strange. All was working well last night. Videos playing off USB stick. Turned Pi on this morning and no videos playing.

Just re-named videos on USB to one word e.g file.mpg. Still nothing played.

Very strange. Will check all my files and scripts again tomorrow.

Re: seamless looping

Heya Nolman, Success last night and went to boot video today and it just loaded the desktop. No errors or anything. I formatted the USB stick, loaded some new videos on and started up the Pi again and still loads the desktop without playing any video or any sign of omxplayer. Very strange! I hadn't ...

Re: seamless looping

Hehe I worked this out after I posted the message when I ran startx and the video loaded off my USB stick. Brilliant!!!

Is there a way to turn off/skip all the startup text or is that inevitable?

It's great to see video auto play. The Raspberry Pi is a great piece of kit.

Re: seamless looping

Heya nolman, Intensive week of Raspberry Pi trial and error. I now have Huceke omxplayer installed and all the scripts you specify. Usbdrive is mounted each time, videoloop.sh can be run manually, I have my desktop file created, but when I start the Raspberry Pi, it goes straight to a prompt. Nothin...

Re: seamless looping

Brilliant! With my crash course in Raspberry Pi knowledge, I will attempt this tonight and let you know how I go. Sorry to be so vague, but how do I install the Huceke version of omxplayer on my Pi? I now have the Pi connected to my router. Can I download direct via Wheezy? I have been able to get a...

Re: seamless looping

Hi all, I have been following this thread and have had a crash course in Raspberry Pi in the last few days. I'll get stuck for about half an hour, Google the problem and then learn something new. I am currently using the latest version of Wheezy and would like a simple video looping option at startu...
