Video Player software for Raspberry pi 3

Postby matteoraggi » Wed Feb 21, 2018 12:05 am

Which is the best video player to use on arch linux on raspberry?
omxplayer, mplayer, vmp or what?

I got this suggestion, what do you think?
smplayer + mpv-rpi + ffmpeg-mmal = gui interface but no window mode.

You may try my PiPlayer [1], which is basically a window wrapper around omxplayer. You can move, resize it, etc, but cannot move anything in front of the omxplayer overlay. Also you could use it to stream directly from twitch (but then omxplayer gets very slow to react to inputs) and videos from youtube (with smtube).

You would need py-fltk though, which can be build and installed using that handy bash-skript (at least I hope it still woks).
