Web Frontend for Omxplayer on Raspberry Pi

By chance I have gotten a Raspberry Pi – now it runs Raspian, is mounted behind by TV screen and gets into a DYI media center. Just installing a XMBC on a preconfigured image is nice, but this is more fun.

I’ve started coding my own web frontend for the omxplayer, and here’s the code: https://github.com/kifj/omxplayer-ui/

  1. Hey Joe,

    I´m trying to make it work in my raspberry, however I can not see the files that are in my folders, I set up in the conf file (json file) the route but I can not see anything…do you what could be the problem??

    Thanks in advance

  2. Hello,
    I tried omxplay-ui on my raspberry. I’m using lighttpd as webserver (that works pretty well !). My files are located under /media/USBHDD1/raspnas/Movies (also shared via samba). omxplayer-ui is located here : /var/www/omx.
    i changed root in settings.json : “root”:”\/media\/USBHDD1\/raspnas\/Movies”
    i also changed this.baseUrl = “/omx”; in mediaplayer.js
    I can get index.html but cannot see any “server” or files.
    index.php returns 404.

    Have you got any idea ?

  3. Hello Joe,

    I am trying to set this up on my raspberry pi but i have no idea where to put the files that I got from github. Can you help me out a little?


    • You need to install a web server – apache httpd for example – and copy the files to a folder which is served by the web server – /var/www for apache.
