How to play video in constant loop without force close?

Postby #Raven on Thu Sep 27, 2012 10:34 am

Hey everyone.

At work I've got a Linux machine dedicated to playing point-of-sale videos. The videos I'm using are low quality, small size FLVs, and essentially I have one video playing in a constant loop. Or at least I'm trying. It works throughout the day, but every morning when I come in, the application has closed, or the video's stopped playing and I need to restart the application to get it playing again. I've tried the included Movie Player, Gnome MPlayer, and VLC. All yield the same results. How can I stop it from stopping? Or, if there's no way to stop it from giving up after a while, is there something I can do in the terminal to automatically restart the application at a certain time?

Thanks,

Raven

[Edit] your original post and add [SOLVED] once your question is resolved.

“The people are my God” stressing the factor determining man’s destiny lies within man not in anything outside man, and thereby defining man as the dominator and remoulder of the world.
