I need to play media content (images and video) from a USB flash drive automagically upon its insertion. While I'm pretty sure about the "automagically" part (we've got udev for that kind of thing, right?), I'm still looking for a player application that would be able to do the following:
- play both video and image content, as many formats as possible;
- fullscreen playback;
- insert transient effects between images (like blurring, fade to black, the more options the better);
- allow me to configure image display time (I've heard VLC has a problem here)
I'm going to run this on a raspberry pi device with an HDMI display attached. I don't plan to have any GUI there (only an invitation to insert a flash drive, maybe), so I probably need a solution that runs from command line and has no GUI itself. Any suggestions are welcome.
