Seamlessly Looping 4K Video Player
#1
I have a Raspberry Pi running the Adafruit video looper (https://learn.adafruit.com/raspberry-pi-...r/overview).  It does exactly what I need, but cannot play 4K video.  I just picked up a maxxed out Pine 64 hoping to make a video looper capable of seemlessly looping 4k video.

I searched the forum and didn't find anything helpful.

Anyone have any helpful information?

as best as i understand the current development, pine64 can not do 4k either. however there may be a specific configuration that might allow it. it mostly depends on a driver that is not widely available.

I also don't have any 4K experience (due to lack of 4K displays Wink ),  but AFAIK, the Armbian distro should support 4K out of the box - although it is probably the beta image you want at the moment since you'd want the desktop environment. It should be a simple matter of editing uEnvt.txt or armbianEnv.txt with your desired resolution settings. Give it a try, and if you get stuck, give a holler on their forum as they're friendly folk over there, and will guide you through or fix up any issues where practical.

@Twelvizm- were you able to find a solution?  looking for seamless loop of 4k options as well.

No luck yet.  I'm still poking around trying to find any solution that works.  I love my Raspberry Pi looping player, easiest video player to use, brainless really.  Just need more resolution as all my work is delivered in 4K.
