Pixi is a simple CLI file browser and video player. Pixi was built to browse and play videos on a Raspberry Pi but it should be compatible with any flavor of Linux. The default video player is omxplayer but is easily configurable to whatever your platform supports.
- Intuitive keyboard navigation
- Colored file list
- History of played files with color indication in file list
- Easily show/hide hidden "." files
- Configure the omxplayer command (ie add/remove xterm or change audio output options)
- go 1.10
xterm is not required, but is recommended so that
omxplayer gains keyboard focus when a video is played. To remove the
xterm requirement, hit 's' when
pixi is open and remove everything before the word
git clone https://github.com/destinmoulton/pixi.git cd pixi
Install the project dependencies:
go get ./...
go install pixi.go
Configuring the Video Player
The video player can be configured on the Settings screen. Launch pixi and press 's' to access the settings. Command line parameters can be altered to match your Pi configuration (ie audio output).
