Would love to use my Pi zero W for the portability in the car but I have a Pi 3 as well I can use.
Here's what I wanted to do: I have a couple of flash drives (FAT32) with different videos. I wanted to be able to insert any of the flash drives in and play it through a game controller or IR tv remote. I tried the Kodi OSes (OSMC, LibreElec) but it's too overkill for my purposes. For OSMC, I like the minimal GUI so something similar would be great - however, with OSMC - I can't find a way to auto-mount or access my flash drives without going through so many menu clicks (adding source, rescanning, etc..)
I don't need to create thumbnails or fetch artwork/descriptions/subtitles.
I also tried Raspbian and while there's a way to use the omxplayer command at startup -- it works for one video but if I have a good 20 - 30 and want it organized -- I couldn't find any software. If you know of any, please do share.
