Linuxsat-support bootvideo (BETA TEST)


    Okay this is my first attempt at this.... It is also the first IPK i have created, so please test and report back.

    I have tested on openATV 5.3 on -xpeed lx3 it is working, it should work on all newer OE images with similar boot file structure, kernel.

    I will work on making it smaller in size, it is just over 4mb right now.....

    Also, Could a VU+ user please report if they get sound with the boot video ??


    FTP the IPK to /tmp and install with software manger or telnet

    1. opkg install --force-overwrite /tmp/*.ipk

    If it all works you should end up with this:

    Thanks to captain for his eplayer5 and Madoss and PaulDB for the scripts.

  • nice one,
    stopped doing these years a go

    still would edit the file though to have .* instead of .mp4

    you could the try other codecs and maybe smaller files

  • It ran once on initial forced install and reboot via putty, including sound.
    Doesn't run bootvideo after that, only bootwait/backdrops etc (tried reboot via gui and hard reboot via rocker switch).
    Tested on duo2 running openvix:

  • Thanks mate, off to work now, will load up vix tonight and have a butchers.

  • Need to update my image anyhow as it is a bit old now.
    Will give openatv a go later if I get a bit of time.
    Have a solo2 and will test it later on that also.

    Looks very good pauldb,runs very smooth. Audio could do with a bit of a boost if thats possible (my opinion though).

  • this is one of the reasons i gave up on the boot videos

    this was my attempt many years ago started on the alien2 and a few mips boxes, too much trouble for those that arnt savvy as a few files did need changing, sometimes manually depending on image used

    but if people want to have a look remember it can crash your box Please login to see this link.

  • This used to work on all OE images before kernel changed.... (that was 2 years ago)
    I think some changes are required with the eplayer. I have not gone into detail with it as i use ATV on all my boxes.
    Great work BTW mate

  • Not working I'm afraid.
    Just backdrop, no boot video.
    This is the version I'm currently running:

    All that's showing is backdrops, no boot video.
    Tried normal ipk installation and forced ipk installation via putty.
    Restarted via gui and hard reboot via rocker switch.
