Super handy resource for playing videos from the command line on your Raspberry Pi using Omxplayer, over at RaspberryPi Spy:
If you need to play video files and you don’t want to install a full media solution such as XBMC then you can play them directly from the command line using Omxplayer. This is a media player created by Edgar Hucek specifically for the Raspberry Pi and it takes advantage of the Pi’s GPU.
Omxplayer is particularly useful if you are creating videos with the Pi camera module and want to playback the files from the command line.
