Re: omxplayer fails to play music after update

To come back to the reported issue:

To see your input again on the command line type:
reset

To have a working omxplayer again, you can remove the omxplayer package and
install the older working one (do as root).
apt-get remove omxplayer
then do
cd /var/cache/apt/archives/
ls omxplayer*
and install a previous version with
dpkg -i <filename>

if you do not have an old omxplayer version under /var/cache/apt/archives
you can get the previous from the repository directly

I can concurr that omxplayer_0.2.4~subtitles~git20130128~f60f9019_armhf.deb does not work on my RPI, then I removed it, and installed a previous version omxplayer_0.2.1~git20120728~63312741_armhf.deb and this one does work

I was gettign the same message posted along this thread about error on a Symbol.

thanks to @GenVerti for posting the link to previous versions.

The latest version requires the rpi-update firmware.

I did that, see post up the thread, but although omxplayer now works I got the black screen problem.

apt-get upgrade now has latest firmware on, so rpi-update isn't necessary.
