Hi all, I am trying to play video from the menu screen. I have added an icon that links to a shell script and now my video plays.
But…After 10 seconds it stops and freezes and I have to reboot the Pocket C.H.I.P. I understand that this is normal behaviour and if I play the video file from the terminal everything works fine.
My question: is there any way I can launch the terminal from the script - then play the video file - then quit the terminal and return to the menu screen?
Or can I avoid the freeze issue some other way?
Here is the very simplistic content of my shell script:
#! /bin/sh exec mplayer /home/chip/Videos/estimote.mp4
I have followed this procedure: [APT] Pocket Home (Marshmallow edition)
