Is it possible to play a series of video files without showing the desktop or console between each video? I would be fine with simply displaying a black screen for a split second. I do see that there are multiple questions posted about playing video files without a gap. What about a gap of just "video black?"
I'm using cvlc with a raspberry pi 4 and Raspbian Buster. I'm not married to cvlc, if there's an omxplayer solution that would be fine as well.
