OMXPlayer is a commandline OMX player for the Raspberry PI.
It was developed as a testbed for the XBMC Raspberry PI implementation
and is quite handy to use standalone.
OMXPlayer can not be used with the KMS driver on Ubuntu Core, make sure
to comment "dtoverlay=vc4-kms-v3d" in /boot/uboot/config.txt (note that
this in turn disables support for mir-kiosk). It is also recommended to
set "gpu_mem=128" (or higher) when playing 1080p60 video.
For versions of Ubuntu between 14.04 LTS (Trusty Tahr) and 15.10 (Wily Werewolf), as well as Ubuntu flavours that don’t include snap by default, snap can be installed from the Ubuntu Software Centre by searching for snapd.
Alternatively, snapd can be installed from the command line:
sudo apt update
sudo apt install snapd
Either log out and back in again, or restart your system, to ensure snap’s paths are updated correctly.
To install rpi-iptv-player, simply use the following command:
