Re: How to use SMPLAYER with omxplayer as backend ?

SMPLAYER is a front end for mplayer or mplayer2. You cannot use it for omxplayer.

For omxplayer you have to use one of the GUIs developed by community members, e.g. my omxplayerGUI.

Re: How to start an app without windows manager

xinit has to be called like this: xinit /path/to/app -- vt$(fgconsole) Note: Usually you will also need a window manager, not just XORG. Create a script in the root of you user directory, e.g. "startapp": #!/bin/sh openbox --startup "/path/to/app" and make it executable. Test it with: xinit ./starta...

Re: What prevents X from being fully HW-accelerated?

omxplayer decodes the video in the GPU memory and sends it immediately to the video output using an overlay. Video decoding by the GPU has been hacked into the RPi chromium version. The decoded video has to be copied back into the framebuffer, which also includes a color space conversion (and maybe ...

Re: lxde desktop?

LXDE depends on other software (X-ORG, openbox, pcmanfm) and supplies a number of tools. For a full list, run
ls /usr/bin/lx*
pcmanfm supplies the desktop background and the file manager windows.

EDIT: fixed typo.

Re: Offline Transcoding Server

HandBrake may be a good solution. I once created a version for Raspbian Jessie, which could reencode SD video in almost real time. It will be definitely slower for HD videos. And it's currently not available for Stretch, except if you compile it yourself.

This does real time transcoding of live DVB streams and the transcoded streams can also be recorded.
It does not work for file transcoding.

Rtranscode works really well. Would it be possible to stop transcoding automatically when closing kodi or vlc in remote device for example? It is possible that you forget to stop the transcode. In that case, it could fill all the available space in root system?
No to both.
