Dual display video playback on the Pi4

Thu Aug 29, 2019 3:35 pm

I've updated my software info-beamer in the last month to support the Pi4 and its new abilities. I've been making lots of progress recently and I wanted to show a small demo of one of the nicer and I think unique features at the moment: It is capable of playing H264 (H265 hopefully soonish) videos across two displays. Here's a small demo clip of that in action. Due to the H264 decoder limits, the total video resolution is limited to FullHD at the moment, but once I've add H265 support, a lot more should be possible. Happy to answer any question you might have.
