No video screen with omxplayer for MMM-Podcast2



  • Hi,

    The module did work well for the last few months but since two weeks I get no video on my screen. I did not change any modules or configs. I just updated my raspberry via sudo apt update.

    My logs are showing that my notification “BUTTON_PRESSED” was successfull.

    This is my config:

    {
    module: 'MMM-Podcast2',
    config: {
    feedUrl: 'https://www.tagesschau.de/export/video-podcast/webxl/tagesschau-in-100-sekunden_https/',
    refreshInterval: 1000 * 1800, //refreshs streaming link every 1800 seconds (30Min)
    omxargs: ' --win 10,200,1090,850 -o alsa:hw:1,0 ' //links,oben,rechts,unten
    }
    },
    

    If I test my omxplayer via

    omxplayer --win 0,0,640,480 /opt/vc/src/hello_pi/hello_video/test.h264
    
    

    the video is playing on my mirror.
    I tried to disable all my other modules and checked, if Podcast2 is running. But still no video on my mirror.

    Does anyone have an idea what might cause this error? Are there any settings that could run omxplayer in the background?



  • Same here

    EDIT:

    Okay in my case …

    omxplayer --win 0,0,640,480 /opt/vc/src/hello_pi/hello_video/test.h264
    

    … does not open the omxplayer on my Mirror.

    pi@raspberrypi:~ $ omxplayer --win 0,0,640,480 /opt/vc/src/hello_pi/hello_video/test.h264
    Video codec omx-h264 width 1920 height 1080 profile 77 fps 25.000000
