This post caught my attention. Re digital signage. I hope to pick up some pointers here. And I already have. My app started out as a search for text. Then if it found a reference to a picture that got displayed. Next was video etc. Now it can play random groupings of Large Text, video segments and pictures. Pretty much everything I want for storefront signage. Example of the text control file: SIX steps are cleared in this jump slo-mo is 1/12 speed then full speed with a resume for the rest of the clip skate_board_213 video - photo begin again pause start==900 wait=.5 speed=100 skate board xxx.f:\skate_board_213.mpg photo begin again continue pause start==900 wait=.6 skate board xxx.f:\skate_board_213.mpg photo continue resume begin start==900 wait=.5 speed=100 skate board xxx.f:\skate_board_213.mpg ============================================================ The ten lines of text show in delayed print (1/30 sec per character) and 48 point Then the video starts as .9 seconds in and plays at .100 speed for 1/2 second then it plays "AGAIN" like the first time. Then it plays 2 times at full speed for .6 second. Then it plays 1 more time for .5 second at slow motion then it resumes play at full speed for the rest of the short clip Playing from a USB stick. My intention is to port the app to Java or C+ for smart phones. The raspberrypi sounds like a good alternative to a used PC & FlatScreen TV running 24X7 in a storefront. The App is free.
