omxplayer doesn't seem to be accepting keyboard commands
|Status:||Closed||Start date:||10 Apr 2016|

After starting a video the ESC key no longer stops omxplayer and returns to videofe. Also the fast forward/reverse don't work.
I suspect this is due to the changes in the config file and that the new command in the config filebeing used don't properly forward commands to omxplayer from the xterm. In other words, the config file command is not the same as the old command hard coded in videofe, or something like that.

Duh. That's exactly the problem. The command should be:
xterm -display :0.0 -fullscreen -fg black -bg black -e omxplayer -o hdmi -r %s
That fixed the problem. I just need to make sure that is set as the default in the default config file.

Not sure about this but on the PiBox server, VideoFE does not accept ESC to exit the app. The video does (via xterm) but not the app itself. This is the same SD card I ran on my test system so I need to take it back there and test it there.
I also need to see if this is the case on the Player.
The PiBox Player box has a 0.11 build on it but it needs to have the opkgs installed and then tested.

VideoFE was improperly mapping the system wide configuration for the HOME key. The config file has a keysym and action and videofe swapped those around so wasn't honoring the configuration.
I've fixed that. Code is checked in and pushed.
Updated the videofe.cfg file to get installed with a proper default for PiBox and pushed that too.
