Currently I'm using omxplayer on Raspbian to automatically play a folder of videos in loop after boot. It works great. The only problem is that it takes almost 90 seconds to boot and start to play video files. I switched to Xbian ; it was better. But still it would take almost 50 seconds to boot and play video files.
So I decided to find very minimal distros with fast boot process. I searched a lot, and found Minibian (http://sourceforge.net/projects/minibian/) and Moebius (http://moebiuslinux.sourceforge.net/), which both are probably the minimized versions of Raspbian. These distros claim to have very fast boot processes (20 and 10 seconds), which make them ideal for minimal embedded applications. This is great.
However, it seems that people have had problems installing omxplayer on these distros. Would you please help what we shall change, or what dependencies we shall install first, so as to be able to install omxplayer on very minimal distros, like Minibian or Moebius !?
By the way, do you suggest any other light and minimal distro to use?
Thank you for your time and support.
