READ THE CHANGELOG BEFORE UPDATING!
MMM-EasyBack no autostart Video
I am trying a clean install now
is this the start file you are talking about?
pi@raspberrypi:~ $ ls chromium_start.sh mmstart.sh package-lock.json MagicMirror node-v10.16.0-linux-armv6l pi@raspberrypi:~ $
pi@raspberrypi:~ $ sudo nano mmstart.sh GNU nano 3.2 mmstart.sh #!/bin/bash cd ~/MagicMirror node serveronly & sleep 30 xinit /home/pi/chromium_start.sh npm start dev
Is that where it goes?
Man doing this project makes me feel so dumb I need to learn more, any suggestions?
Oh an just to update with the clean install I had the same issue.
I am also now using a Raspberry Pi 3 B+
Well I ended up going to a static picture because I can’t think of what else to do.
the MagicMirror start script is ~/MagicMirror/installers/mm.sh
it does not run serveronly… it assumes you are running the mirror user experience ON the same machine.
i don’t know if EasyBack works on the remote client of serveronly… THAT browser would have to enable autoplay… our fix was for the electron browser running ON the same machine
ok, i see what you are doing… using chromium for the browser for some reason…
so u have to disable the autoplay blocker there , from
You can decide to disable entirely the autoplay policy by setting the Chrome flag "Autoplay Policy" to "No user gesture is required" at chrome://flags/#autoplay-policy. This allows you to test your website as if user were strongly engaged with your site and playback autoplay would be always allowed.
Ah I see! It works THANK YOU!
Must be because of the pre-made image I installed MagicMirror with.

Here is the fix:
I edited the file chromium_start.sh found here:
pi@raspberrypi:~ $ ls chromium_start.sh MagicMirror mmstart.sh node-v10.16.0-linux-armv6l package-lock.json
GNU nano 3.2 chromium_start.sh #!/bin/sh unclutter & xset -dpms # disable DPMS (Energy Star) features. xset s off # disable screen saver xset s noblank # don’t blank the video device matchbox-window-manager & #midori -e Fullscreen -a http://localhost:8080 chromium-browser --autoplay-policy=no-user-gesture-required --incognito --kiosk http://localhost:8080/
@Darkmx-6 cool!.. great feedback, thanks we missed that this was a pi0, and that you were running split mode…
is was a pi0, and that you were running split mode…
what is split mode? If I am I didn’t mean to, I have it directly connected to a TV that I am using as a Bulletin board.
@Darkmx-6 there are two ways to run Magic Mirror
all in one(all in one application) , uses electron, npm start.
we’ve solved the pi 0 problem… my installer handles it
split mode (two applications)
then view with some other browser (chrome, firefox, ie, …) either locally or from another machine/phone…
