I signed up here to get help and advice on how to proceed with the following. It is a very simple project but I want to start in the best way possible.
For an upcoming exhibition I need a videoplayer that I can use on a raspberry pi. When pushing a button you will randomly jump to a new video and to a random position of this clip. Shuffle on shuffle.
I have already created this using software PureData (Pd) in combination with a Pd library that allows you to use OpenFrameworks. However, this library is not updated for the Raspberry Pi and I have only succeeded to make it work on OSX. The user interaction button I solved using an Ardunio and serial communication over USB.
I figure a better way to do this is to use OpenCV + Python + GPIO-pins of the Raspberry Pi.
Any help to get me further on is deeply appreciated!
