file.
Thanks,
Schultze

Install VLC on Raspbian?

VLC on Raspian with a weak processor and hardware acceleration that vlc doesn't understand does not in any way equate to VLC on Windows or Linux.

I'm logged in via ssh. When I start the vlc (vlc file.m2ts) it trys to play the video in the terminal. There is nothing at the hdmi port. The omxplayer plays over hdmi.

Yeah, omxplayer writes directly to the framebuffer ("video RAM"), vlc to the regular screen. On ssh, you are not attached to the regular screen, so you need to tell vlc to use it. Try this, not tested:
DISPLAY=:0 vlc file.m2ts

It seems to be a problem with the file. The omxplayer give me this message: COMXAudio::Decode timeout

"Thanks for your reply. Interesting idea, I didn't know about the DISPLAY environment variable. Unfortunately, it didn't work. Perhaps the syntax is not right, I will try and google some more info. Cheers."

Can a regular Window$ or Linux PC play that video clip?

This is how I set up teh environment to play videios on te client that connectes via ssh
#!/bin/sh # start in the right place cd /var/videos # this fixes some errors that I don't understand export $(dbus-launch) #detect IP address of remote client IP=`echo $SSH_CONNECTION | awk '{print $1}'` #redirect pulse audio to it PULSE_SERVER=$IP:'4713' # set default X display to remote client DISPLAY=$IP:0.0 # DBUS_SESSION_BUS_ADDRESS="" export PULSE_SERVER export DISPLAY
It occusr to me that setting IP to localhost or 127.0.0.1 maight reduirect sound top where you want iot.
Obviously video will never work since ssh does not give a graphical windowed interface that VLC can connect to.
So I am in any case not clear on what you are tring to do.
Also you may need to ensure that sound is being directed to the HDMI port by default.

yes. VLX weill be looking fdor an Xserver to send the dosplay to, if not 'lovcalhost'; trhen selewhere.,
But it also needs to know where to send the sound. PULSEAUDIO or perhaps ALSA something?
I developed that script for kaffiene, not VLC, tho

Sorry, I didn't understand all the messages from vlc. I try to copy. After I exported the DISPLAY=:0 and start vlc, I got these:

I am confused.
Is ther an xserver running on the pi at all?
If so, why are you not using a GUI to start VLC?

And how do you expect the Pi to form an HDMI picture without an X server?
You need to start an X server on the pi, so that essentially you end up similar to what I have here - a TV acting as a monitor to a stock linux system. That I control with e.g. a stripped down wireless keyboard.
You CAN control via SSH, but its nice to have a 'remote' that works teh TV....

Running Kodi my Pi Zero responds to the TV remote. There is also a web interface that you can run from e.g. a mobile device.

WTF does an X server have to do with HDMI?
I have a Pi that I boot to getty and guess what? It shows me the text login prompt on HDMI. I have no solution for Michael's problem, as I never use vlc and don't know it's quirks, but I think you are leading him down some crazy and irrelevant paths.
If I were Michael, I'd start looking at the various video output modules in vlc to see what could be done with the non-X outputs.
