OMXPlayer is a standalone commandline OMX player for the Raspberry PI.
I cannot find it in the repository. How do I install it?

You can install it easily as superuser:
First you need install required dependencies:
apt-get install libpcre3 fonts-freefont-ttf
Optionally you can install
fbset, I highly recommend it if you are going to use --refresh/-r option:
apt-get install fbset
When you have installed the dependencies you can go ahead downloading the omxplayer and install it with dpkg:
cd /tmp/ wget http://omxplayer.sconde.net/builds/omxplayer_0.3.6~git20150505~b1ad23e_armhf.deb dpkg -i omxplayer_*_armhf.deb
the latest version will change, so this is just the example for the (currently latest) version from 20150505.
