I have an IP camera connected to the Raspberry Pi. I am using ffplay to display the camera through rtsp and it works.
But I can't make it start when X starts.
I tried several route:
- And using a service as described in https://www.raspberrypi.com/tutorials/how-to-use-a-raspberry-pi-in-kiosk-mode/
Note that following that previous link, I can start chrome alright but impossible to see anything from ffplay. It runs in the background (I can see it hugging the CPU through
top) and no error message in the logs. But ffplay does not display any window. I tried delaying the start of ffplay with sleep but no luck.
Is there anything special about ffplay that makes it impossible to start? Any way out this bind?
