Hi Forum,

no sure if this is the right area to ask - please point in the right direction.

I am planning and constructing a "space ship" bed for my young boys and I was looking to jazz it up a little. There are some really cool Startup seq and trek consoles available royalty free video.

in view of this i wanted to buy a few cheap small displays and have a video loop plying to them (assume RCA video as guess) so the question is:

looking for a absolutely simple looping video player (w/o a screen) - digital video format from a USB or SD card etc..

any ideas- less complex the better (although the player will be hidden from view) as i dont want little hands to play with buttons etc..

A Raspberry Pi would do that. It has HDMI and composite video output.
