I have Raspberry Pi version B.

My steps:

  1. apt-get update
  2. apt-get upgrade
  3. apt-get install omxplayer

Then input: omxplayer video.mp4 but nothing happens....omxplayer only write to console this information: File parameters. omx-h264 , 1280x720 profile 100 fps 25

arm memory=256M gpu memory=256M

I analyzed log file that omxplayer was created but i didn't see nothing strange. How I can find the source of problem ???

PS. This video file play successfully on the my notebook with Win8

Thanks in advance.


I invoked

omxplayer -i video.mp4 and output is:

  • Can you edit your question to include results of omxplayer -i video.mp4? What are you using to play on Win8? – dbmitch Nov 18 '16 at 20:34
  • @dbmitch Many thanks to your answer. I will put results tommorow. I use Windows Media Player to play mp4 video. – Oleg Gopkolov Nov 19 '16 at 4:10

I answer myself. I have upgraded OS on the Rpi to Jessie and all begin to work correctly.
