Omxplayer Omxplayer is a video player specifically made for the Raspberry Pi's GPU made by Edgar (gimli) Hucek from the XBMC/Kodi project. It relies on the OpenMAX hardware acceleration API, which is the Broadcom's VideoCore officially supported API for GPU video/audio processing. Raspberry Pi forum user spenning made precompiled binaries available on the forum. See here. Read-only root filesystem In my previous posts about ramdisks on my Raspberry Pi here and here, I explained my goal to reduce write access to the sd card as far as possible. The last step is to mount the sd card read-only, so its filesystems can almost never get damaged. This is the expected behaviour of most embedded devices. You can power-cycle them and do no damage to their internal storage. First, you need to edit your /etc/fstab file to configure the root and boot filesystems to be mounted read-only.
Quick start guide What you will need Required SD CardWe recommend an 8GB class 4 SD card – ideally preinstalled with NOOBS. Lapse Pi – Motorised Time-lapse Rail with Raspberry Pi Here’s another article in the series of photography related DIY projects using the Raspberry Pi single board computer. This time it’s a Time Lapse rail. In this case, I think it’s OK to start with the results, so here’s a video of a few time-lapse sequence that I’ve put together over the last few weeks. Make sure you play it in full screen, and High Definition if possible! Backgroud Music by
Interfacing with a Wiimote - Physical Computing with Raspberry Pi Difficulty: intermediate This tutorial will show you how to connect a Wiimote to the Pi over Bluetooth.
