(Fixed) Video Player with GUI

Wed Nov 29, 2017 9:51 am

Hello, I'm new here :-)

how I can use a videoplayer with gui with raspbian 9 stretch? From file manager (PCmanFM) i want to start a
video by click on the video file. Need a videoplayer where I can chance volume and control start/start stop video with mouse.

Had install vlc but it is very slow, the software dont use the hardware GPU? I know that omxplayer use the VC4 GPU but I think it is not the only moviplayer. Where is the alternative without console?

Thx for help

There are GUIs for omxplayer.

Some are mentioned here:

Further googling may reveal more.

omxplayerGUI does what you are asking for (and a lot more). It's part of my kweb suite.
The player manual is also available online.
Minimal Kiosk Browser (kweb)
Slim, fast webkit browser with support for audio+video+playlists+youtube+pdf+download
Optional fullscreen kiosk mode and command interface for embedded applications
Includes omxplayerGUI, an X front end for omxplayer

Oh many thanks. That was fast answers :D

I'm confused because first I search the app store after software with

Code: Select all

apt list "*kweb*" 
for my system but I have not find this names "omxplayerGUI or kweb" in the store (repository) but now I will look first in the links that you have postet :) I write back soon how it works on my sytem.

It's not in the repository, as it has been written especially for the RPi. To install it follow the first link.

Very nice :-)

omxplayerGUI works perfect for my mpeg4 Videos. Thank you for the fast help. In my opinion the program should be in the standard repos from Raspbian OS. That would be an improvement for beginners.

best regards
