After searching different forums for integrating omxplayer with LIRC, still I haven't found answers to my problem.
I have successfully set up LIRC on my Raspberry Pi B+, and now I want to create a
lircrc file for it, in order to actually begin controlling the device remotely.
The following is an example I've written on
begin prog = irexec button = KEY_POWER config = omxplayer my_video.mp4 & repeat = 0 end
This file works OK; whenever I run
irexec and press KEY_POWER on my IR remote controller, the omxplayer starts to play the video.
Now I want to add some features like increase volume, decrease volume, next, previous, etc. to the
I know that pressing some keys like +, -, arrows, etc. on keyboard control the video playback on omxplayer; but I don't want to use the keyboard. I just want to do them all by my IR remote controller. (Although I don't want to use keyboard, I just found out that keyboard shortcuts like +, -, etc. don't work at all when omxplayer is running on
So what commands should I use to control omxplayer video playback?
I tried something like the following in the
lircrc file to increase the volume:
begin prog = irexec button = KEY_POWER config = + repeat = 0 end
begin prog = irexec button = KEY_POWER config = INCREASE_VOLUME repeat = 0 end
but unfortunately, neither worked!
How can I set my LIRC to control omxplayer?
What are the true commands for controlling the playback options in omxplayer?
Thanks for your time and support.
