I'm a noob when it comes to the Pi so I will likely have a few questions and I have already spent hours reading through the documentation and the comments on here. I am using the latest image file v1.16 that automatically loads fruitbox and plays MP3's on a usb.
My first issue is I can't find where fruitbox is automatically loaded. I have read discussion on editing the .brashrc but can not find anything in that file that would launch fruitbox. I'm looking to have it load directly into the Wurly skin. "./fruitbox --cfg skins/Wurly/fruitbox.cfg"
My second issue is editing the config file as I can't seam to get it to point to to the USB and I have tried everything that I can think of. I have read here that the music path could be set to "media/usb1"
In the documentation is states that if the database file is found first then the music path is ignored. I have also tried changing the database location to point to the usb with no luck.
I would like to run fruitbox using multiple USB's - ie. my music on one, my wife's on another etc. So pointing to the database file would seam ideal.
I am concerned that USB may not be mounted correctly. I can see that their is a folder media/usb1 on my pi but I can not list the contents of that folder. Any help you can provide is appreciated.
I think I have a solution for this... I will update the SD image later this evening
Yep, but it can be in a sub-directory, or any number of sub directories...fruitbox will tunnel down into any directories it finds looking for mp3 files. Also you can define as many music paths as you like, and fruitbox will search through them one after another to create a single database.
Great, glad you got it sorted...perhaps an SD card reader takes longer to initialise and it's not ready by the time fruitbox starts running maybe?
Extracting metadata from OGV files is currently not possible as it's not provided by the Allegro 5 library I'm using. I will ask the dev guys about supporting this, but I don't expect them to come up with a solution to be honest.
Code: Select all
ffmpeg -i MyVideo -b:v 2M -vf scale=640x480 MyVideo.ogv
Yes, you just need to edit skins/MikeTV/fruitbox.cfg and change AutoPlay to on. Please read userguide.txt... this should contain all the information you need.
