Re: Peppy player

OK, I'm still not sure that the player should be completely shutdown. Probably running pygame.quit() could release resources. Though I didn't try it myself.

Good luck in your investigations. Please keep me informed.

Re: Peppy player

Hi Koepisch, I was planning to make Peppy player the best audio player first and then switch to video ;) I believe video needs different backend player. It can be either omxplayer as it has hardware acceleration or VLC compiled with hardware acceleration. Currently Peppy player leverages regular VLC...

Re: Peppy player

Hi Koepisch, I believe you are talking about 'Logo' screensaver. If so, you can adjust the image size by changing configuration parameter 'vertical.size.percent' in the screensaver configuration file: /home/pi/Peppy/screensaver/logo/screensaver-config.txt. You can do that from the Config Web UI too....

Yeah, I had the same bad experience with PocketSphinx on Windows machine. It's out-of-the-box functionality is not usable. You need to train the model. But if you are making the software which will be used by other people you cannot ask them to do that. In contrast to that any web based solution (e....
