Description

Currently the code exits the terminal when omxplayer completes playing a video so that the next video can be started in a new process (the terminal window). But that causes some displays, like the projector used for playing holiday videos on the window, to show their input device screen in autokiosk mode.

To fix this, and get a cleaner playback of multiple videos (especially because omxplayer doesn't yet support a playlist), VideoFE needs to keep omxplayer running through its playlist and use DBus commands to tell omxplayer what to play and when to start and exit.
