piTV is a simple script for Raspbian to play a folder of videos on loop, from a samba share.

It runs only on Raspbian on a Raspberry Pi, via OMXplayer.

All videos must be rendered out specifically for the player, to make sure they display properly on the TV

All the files need to be made executable.

piTV should be installed to /etc/init.d/piTV

piTV.sh and piTV.mount can be installed anywhere.

piTV.sh and piTV should be altered to have the variables at the top point to the correct locations.
