Media player required for digital signage project.
The player should play several media types (Quicktime, AVI, JPG, PNG, etc.) plus it should be able to display a txt ticker across the bottom of the screen, sourced from either an TXT file or from an RSS feed.
The player should boot up and automatically play all files located within a specific folder. Playback should be full screen and no local controls will be required. The playlist should be able to be updated manually via a command line, but also automatically via customizable cron job - as the files to be played will change daily.
Display duration of images should be able to be set by renaming the file, e.g., [url removed, login to view] should display the file for 25secs. Default image display length for image files should be customizable.
We require a software only solutions, preferably using the latest LTS release of Ubuntu as all our hardware has been designed with this in mind. It is expected that all media playback will be done through existing open source projects.
Please enquire if you require more information.
