I am using a Raspberry Pi 0W and I am trying to play a series of videos (between 30 seconds to 4 minutes) on a computer monitor.
I am doing this by opening up the folder of videos to randomly loop in the VLC from the command prompt, and scheduling this task to begin at the same time everyday through crontab.
For some reason, after every video in the first loop or two, and occasionally in the loops after the first two, the vlc player window would close and then reopen in the span of one second. After I created the videos to play in a playlist, this occurs a little less, but still occurs. I have also already installed VLC with hardware acceleration, but it doesn't seem to do the job.
What do you think is a good solution to this problem?
