i'm using ur great PP for a liveshow which is filled from a Network Folder. The slideshow is fillded with videos and pictures and starts automatic on boot. Everything works great and i appreciate your work, its simply great!
I've read already most of the posts but couldn't found a answer to my only problem. My problem is that i want to control the tracks within the liveshow with GPIO buttons. Simply using a button to switch to next track and one to switch to the previous track. The Pause button works fine but there are no buttons specified for the my case.
Now my question is do i have to specify 2 GPIO inputs for the 2 Buttons and write these new case into the specific scripts?
Maybe someone had the same problem and ive just overseen it or just couldn't find it. I'm a beginner wit the Pi and just working wit it since a few months so my Python and general knowledge ist just basic.
Hopefully someone has an answer for me.
Anyway thanks in Advance for everything with PP.
In the 'show Control at End' field of the track put:ottrin wrote:I want to use pair of mediashows same time with different canvas (video and photo slideshow). How i can start next pair of mediashows when 1st video ends.
I cannot find "show control" tab ( edit show). I tried track control, but this opens only one show. Maybe more hints for begginner.In the 'show Control at End' field of the track put:

I am using PiPresents-gapless 1.3. I have used VIDEO1 track-> new-> show. Title "nextVideo2" and Show to Run "Video2" and all other fields are blank. Same also for picture2 in VIDEO1.Are you using [PiPresents-gapless] [PP-next] does not support multiple concurrent shows.
I think you are doing the wrong thing. See secion 8.2 of the manual and the pp_showcontrol_1p3 example mediashow.json River track (ignore the /pipresents.... lines, they are for OSC)ottrin wrote:I am using PiPresents-gapless 1.3.

Moving the mouse should not affect Pi Presents. It sounds like you have not disabled screen blanking using a command line option.
Sometime I see in terminal window: "unclutter: someone created a sub-window to my sub-window! giving up"
Ignore this, its a spurious error message.
start, video1, picture1(pictures),video2, picture2(pictures), video3, picture3(pictures),.
start, video1, picture1(pictures),video2, picture2(pictures), video3, picture3(pictures).
video1 ( at the beginning: open picture1; at the end: close picture1)
show (show to run video2)
Video2 starts then Video3 and then Video3 starts Video1
Where is my mistake?
It is not possible but somebody has modified PP-next to do itakirasrebirth wrote:Hi.
Is it possible to show a live feed from a pi camera or from a USB webcam as a video track in a radiobuttonshow?
Pi Presents just uses omxplayer to play mp4's. Try using omxplayer from the command line to see if your video is broken. instructions at https://github.com/popcornmix/omxplayerwwagonman wrote:No Audio:
I have installed Pi Presents-next on a RP2 model B but the audio portion of my mp4 file does not play. I can switch between HDMI and local sound, but only get static, no audio from the video. The video on my USB stick does play audio when run on my windows laptop.
Any help is appreciated,

First of all i want to apologize for my English in advance.
I love the work you have done. I managed to get a raspberry pi up and running. It will start pipresents automaticly on a reboot. Now i have some people around here who want to display images. So i have chosen for the liveshow. It works fine when you select a map/folder for the media. But i want to use media from a USB stick. So i tried to use the first live map pointing to /media/pi/USB where USB is the name of the USB stick. This is not working.
Is there a workaround to use a usb stick to contain the media for the liveshow?

Please tell me how to add an image to a button on the screen and the animation when you press it gpio buttons? The idea is so that when you press the gpio button, button-image on the screen is press too.
Sorry for my English....
