omxplayer stops running
The auto-kiosk mode continuously plays videos without exiting omxplayer. This works for awhile but eventually omxplayer stops playing and can die leaving videofe still running.There are multiple bugs here:
- omxplayer shouldn't stop running.
- videofe should catch if omxplayer dies
omxplayer stops¶There are several things to try here.
- Try alternative omxplayer release.
- Currently building against master
- Try something earlier
- Build libleak to look for memory leaks in omxplayer
- Have videofe run dbuscontrol.sh status and check if position is not changing every few seconds.
- If not, kill omxplayer and restart it.
videofe catching child exit¶
This should already be implemented - I'd be surprised if it isn't. But check for it. If in kiosk mode, then restart the child.
