    Post by ShadeShaman on Tue Jul 30, 2013 4:27 am

    Hi all,
    So I have a Pandaboard which I want to use as a customized media center and I am developing my own little software which will do the following:

    • load a movie at startup and play it
    • grab the input from a sensor (already figured this out)
    • and, basing on sensor's input and on which part of the movie is currently playing, make the movie jump seamlessly to time t, or if you prefer, to frame f.

    The last one is the most important point that I need to figure out. In other words, I need some component that is able to load and play a movie and, with an API of some kind, allows me to say "go to time t".
    At the moment I am not sure about what's the best way to do this. Would, for example, a VLC (eventually hacked) be sufficient?

    Further notes:
    I still haven't decided what OS will be in the final version so I'm opened to suggestions for this.

    Thanks for reading and for any help! I'll keep you posted on progress.
