Extend kiosk mode to support direct-to-videofe, aka autokiosk mode.
|Status:||Closed||Start date:||08 Nov 2018|
|Severity:||03 - Medium|
This means configuring app manager to use a different launcher, namely videofe in kiosk mode. This will cause the boot to bring up videofe immediately instead of using the launcher for manual navigation.
This is in support using PiBox to auto-play videos on power-up with rear-projection on windows for the holidays.It's also really easy:
- Modify the build of videofe to support adding an appmgr.cfg with "launcher=videofe -k".
- Modify the metabuild to include pkglist.autokiosk to build only the packages required.
- Status changed from New to Closed
- % Done changed from 0 to 100
This has been implemented and was used this last holiday season to display videos on the garage window. So it basically works. It could be better - fix it so I don't lose hdmi connection to the projector between videos - but that's work for another day.
