You don't need to install Kodi to use omxplayer.

Its basically a commanline tool just like "mplayer" and "mpv". ( Which both are also installable with a simple "apt-get install" btw. but they have the same problem as VLC. )
As someone above posted, you can find gui for OMXplayer too.
- "./" is for when you have a program/script in current directory you want to use.k-pi wrote: ↑Wed Sep 19, 2018 8:56 amFrom using omxplayer at the command line, the help screen showed I should use ./omxplayer -p -o hdmi test.mkv
But having ./ at the front was obviously wrong, as it wouldn't start, so I went with omxplayer -p -o hdmi my.mp4
This started playing OK, but didn't respond to the keyboard.
I know ./ is for when you run from your directory, but that's what it said!
