it's a very simple tool to playback video or music files in a continual loop
it supports automatically switching between video and music files
and also correctly randomizes playback (WD's shuffle feature for music does not work)ChangeLog04/30/2012
place on usb stick and reboot - if somebody wanted to put this in svn would be niceUsage
Start or Stop is done on the webend under daemonsConfig
WEC APPS TabFILELOOP_DIR
this will accept a single path or multiple paths separated by a pipe "|"
mix and match any way you like, here's a list of supported formats per WD, entries should be separated by a pipe "|"
Supported Video Files: .avi|.mkv|.iso|.m2ts|.ts|.mov|.tp|.trp|.mp4|.asf|.vob
Supported Music Files: .mp3|.wma|.mpa|.m4a|.mp4a|.ogg|.wav|.aac|.flac|.aif|.aiff|.mka
Supported Image Files: (It's recommended not to use these at this time, you will have problems)FILELOOP_RANDOM
Number of directory levels to search
Applies to all directories listed in FILELOOP_DIR
for those familiar with using find, this is the maxdepth parameter
I did not build in specific support for images, due to dmaosd behavior, when changing 1 image to another dmaosd returns to the menu before displaying the next image and is really really slow
I did not provide support for .m3u at this time, if anybody knows a fast way in bash to resolve /partial/path/to/file.avi so that it becomes /full/path/to/file.avi without using find to search the entire system for a file name
