We have a TV that is displaying what is basically a slide show: a series of static images that loop. Right now a windows PC running powerpoint provides the video feed.
I was wondering if there is a low-overhead software package for the raspberry pi that could run a slideshow. I would prefer not to use the X server, but I recognize there might be some really good solutions that require X. The invocation would be something like
slideshow --delay 8.0 -loop /media/1/slideshowpics/
while true; do slideshow --delay 8.0 /media/1/slideshowpics/* done
would also be fine. I need some way for it to pick up new pictures that we upload via the network.
Bonus points if you can get it to overlay the current IP address with a keystroke.
