@ Monsieur et Madame Musher,

If you select the back left facing arrow towards the top of the screen you can access
the complete shared video album where there are 2 complete Nick Drake albums available for download [ Shift + D when playing or paused ]
(59.40 & 41.45)
There is also a 3rd Nick Drake video (4.06) at the bottom left which just has his
"Northern Sky" track.

@ Mike
There is still life in this old dog. Laughing
I will post details of my manual method tomorrow.

PostPosted: Sun 09 Sep 2018, 13:44    Post subject: Solving The avplay ffplay conumdrum  

Hi musher0, Mike Walsh & All,

I wasn't aware that avplay had been the standard inclusion in older puppies. My exposure to the problem came running Tahrpup based on Trusty Tahr in which Ubuntu had opted for avconv/avplay rather than ffmpeg/ffplay which it had used in Lucid and precise. Tahrpup's other applications, such as ffconvert and pmusic, expected ffmpeg. By Xenial Xerus Ubuntu had switched back to ffmpeg/ffplay eliminating the problem in Xenialpup.

The simplest work-around in Tahrpup was to create a symbolic link to avconv in /usr/bin named ffmpeg: Code "ln -s avconv ffmpeg".

In Puppies which include ffmpeg/ffplay avconv/avplay will not be present, and vice-versa.

Currently ffmpeg/ffplay seems to be the standard inclusion. While the reverse procedure is equally possible, for now at least, in order to write one application which fits all:

Test for the presence of avplay or avconv and, if present, write symbolic links to them named, respectively, ffplay and ffmpeg.

Just some further information about "pho"

(It is so lightweight and easy to use - less than 30Kb and no extra dependencies!)

The pet for Slacko 5.6 is here

Run the slideshow as follows:

pho -s3 -p -r /images_directory/*.*

-s3 means slideshow mode with 3 second delay
-p means presentation mode ie: fullscreen, no borders
-r means repeat the show after all images have been displayed.

The pet linked above should work on many puppies but if you wish to compile for your own puppy the homepage for pho is here:

Hi musher0,

The download link to the required pet [ BlueScreenSaver.pet (28.9MB) ] can be found in this post which gives a bit more detail:

http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=784354&search_id=1069071585#784354

OOTB that pet should work if you have vlc installed and will play the included webm video.
It contains a single script who's content is as follows:

Code:
#!/bin/sh
# ETP June 2014 - A manually invoked screen saver. (Press Ctrl+q to close)
vlc --fullscreen --loop /root/noob/blue_ss.webm &

Assuming that you downloaded the mp4 video of the wallpaper slideshow I would suggest modifying the script as follows
so that it plays that video and provision is made for using either vlc or mpv. (Move the downloaded video to the noob folder)

Code:
#!/bin/sh
# ETP June 2014 - A manually invoked screen saver. (Press Ctrl+q to close)
#vlc --fullscreen --loop /root/noob/blue_ss.webm &
#
#Modified for Musher 9th Sept 2018
#
#vlc --fullscreen --loop /root/noob/Wallpapers.mp4 &
#
#                          *** Or *** (Transpose hashes)
#
mpv --fs --loop-file /root/noob/Wallpapers.mp4 & # (Press q to close)

Once tested you will no doubt wish to substitute an mp4 slideshow of you own. The wallpapers video was made by uploading
them to an album on Google Photos which provides free, unlimited storage and has its own slideshow mode.

That slideshow running in the browser was then recorded with SSR whilst also playing a Nick Drake album in mpv to provide
the background music. For family photographs you may wish to record some commentary using a microphone to remind you
of events, places & dates.

Google Photos despite its name handles albums of both videos & images.
Whilst I used SSR any desktop recorder that also records audio may be used.

Hi musher0,

Following on from the above here is a link to another video to view and optionally download (111MB)
It is also suitable for a romantic manually invoked screensaver. Wink

I just stumbled across a utility posted by goingnuts - xautolock - which can be used to trigger other progrmmes etc after a period of X inactivity.

Might be suitable for triggering slideshows as screensavers:

Hi GG.

As it happens, while you were posting the above, I was trying to locate a
java JRE slideshow that I was using a couple of years ago.

I stumbled upon this "Flexishow", a spreadsheet-driven slideshow based on
java JRE, where basically the app reads one column for the picture and one
column for the length (or duration) of exposure.
https://sourceforge.net/projects/flexishow/files

It's over 17 Mg. I bet'cha that with a little imagination, we can sort of
replicate what it does in bash and awk in less than 17 Kb! I hope the dev,
a certain "jostauf", will not consider suicide... (Gee, I'm mean, today...)

~~~~~~~~~

Ok, the java slideshow app I was looking for is called simply SlideProject
and it's at https://sourceforge.net/projects/slideproject

Description:
Quote:
OS neutral (Java) slide show program for the presentation of digital
photos. Supports animated zooming, transition effects, highlighted points,
panorama scrolling, text fading etc. Movies are also supported.

Scrot coming up.
