need Raspbian build w/ auto-video play & SSH enabled-- bounty offered!

Mon Jan 21, 2019 4:10 am

I can't figure out setting up a pi to auto-run/auto-loop a video from the desktop when powered on. Got it looping video with vlc but the loop isnt seamless. Thinking the player should be omxplayer instead of vlc? also would like to have the pi SSH enabled.

Happy to paypal $20 if someone can take the basic raspbian build and make an image file of it (using a dummy video on the desktop). appreciate it.

omxplayer doesn't require the desktop, so I'd use Raspbian Lite for that. I'd then set it up to run on startup via crontab or rc.local or systemd service with the -loop option.

I could probably create an image file based on the current Stretch Lite that will do the job, including enabling ssh and sorting out a few other configuration settings.

Check out Adafruit's video looper tutorial at https://learn.adafruit.com/raspberry-pi ... r/overview. Does this do what you need?

Here is what you could do, make a script that opens vlc or omxplayer on the specific video, then add the script to the start up section (i think rc.local?)
1 * Raspberry Pi Zero W, 1 * Raspberry Pi 2, 1 * Raspberry Pi 3 1 * Raspberry Pi 3B + :mrgreen:
