Video Looper: Black Screen

by chriscashman on Mon Jul 20, 2020 5:58 pm

Hello,

I'm switching videos on our Pi 4 running the Adafruit Video Looper with all the default settings. We updated the video from 1080p to 4k at 30 FPS using H.264 and all the other suggested settings from the guide. When insert the USB with the new video, it states it found the video and will begin playback, but once the counter stops, the video does not play. We've tried waiting for an hour with no luck.

My assumption is that the resolution is the issue since that is the only major change. Is 4k supported? Could file size play an issue here (the file did double in size from 300mb to 600mb.

I've seem to narrow this down as a 4k video playback issue. Does anyone have any solutions for other video players?
