‘MP4Museum’ is a Readymade Pi Image for Looping Videos in Galleries & Museums #piday #RaspberryPi
‘MP4Museum‘ stands for Media Player 4 Museum, a project by Cologne, Germany-based artist Julius Schmiedel. Based on Raspbian Lite and OMXPlayer this Pi project provides a much-needed solution for artists, makers, galleries, and museums that require a no-nonsense solution for looping video files. Gone are the days of Betamax tapes and disc media but it’s still harder than you would think for museums to loop video without using bloated hardware options or an entire MacBook that requires a login, etc. This way, MP4Museum does one thing and it does it spot-on.
A minimalistic, Open Source Video Player.
Loops all MP4 Files from USB Memory.

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.
