Infinite Media player for The Elderly and Incapacitated

Gazmac from Australia has developed a very interesting and useful application for Pi Presents. I will let him explain:

‘My mother is 94 and no longer able to use TV controls etc. The nursing home staff kindly put the TV on for her and select something reasonable for her to watch. However, the program rolls on and eventually offends her in some way. Her distress prompted me to find another solution to provide good quality content. Even pay services are only as good as the selection you make which is beyond her.’

Gary has written about his development here. He describes how to move Raspbian, pp_home and the many GBytes of media to a SSD, how to prepare various types of media for use with Pi Presents and a complex profile based on liveshows combining videos and images with background music.
