Video looper with shut down option

Wed Jan 03, 2018 5:30 pm

For my project, I need a video looper and I found it here:

https://learn.adafruit.com/raspberry-pi ... stallation

It works fine, and to turn off the system I remove the power cable.
But in the above method, they mentioned that you need to connect to raspi board with ssh to shut down the board, because shutting down the raspi by pulling the power cable may cause damage to SD card and in some case maybe need to reinstall the os.

In my project, I need to power on and off my video looper several times in a day. (I do not want to use SSH ) so it's better that have a shutdown button to turn off the raspi.

so is there a method that integrates mentioned video looper with a shutdown button?

any alternative method to do this is appreciated.

Regards

My device is 'Raspberry pi 3 model B' and I want to use GPIO + Python coding to do that.
I found somethings in web but did not work for me (I guess because those methods were for raspberry 2) !
Is there a clear solution (using GPIO + python) for raspberry pi 3 model B to add a shutdown button?
