I'll be travelling to India next week to Install some Rasberry Pi's in some rural village schools. I've got RACHEL Pi LAN servers setup for them but I'm also bringing USB drives (with a powered USB hub) so the kids can watch preloaded movies and videos.
I'm personally barely computer literate
but with a lot of help from those more knowledgeable I've been able to get everything working (i've got a Hindi Cartoon playing on OMX at this very moment).
My concern is that since it was relatively hard for me (a total noob but native English speaker) to get OMX player to run the vids via command line maybe someone out there knows of or is willing to make a GUI interface for OMX? That way I won't have to worry about showing the kids how to use the command line (in a language they don't speak or read) to open videos...
I'm actually leaving for India next week so time is of the essence. I'm willing to pay someone to develop this if that helps motivate any of you Linux wizards out there...
