Do you need a simple way to display seamless looping video files, like in an art exhibit or digital sign? Check out this Raspberry Pi video looper project to learn how to turn a Raspberry Pi into a dedicated video playback machine. Just stick a USB drive loaded with movies into the Raspberry Pi and it will play them over and over in a loop!
The Raspberry Pi is a great platform for building a video playback appliance since it’s inexpensive, tiny, and has support for hardware video acceleration. However it’s confusing to sort through the many options for playing and looping videos, and even more troublesome to put everything into an easy to use package. This project has done all the hard work for you to make the most popular and reliable video playback options on the Raspberry Pi easy to use.
Best of all, we’ve tweaked and optimized the video player for Raspberry Pi for seamless looping with audio! (There’s a 100ms pause between loops on the last frame of the video but there’s no black screen flicker)
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
