i need help.
I am using the Gameduino 3, 4,2" with an Arduino Uno. My goal is to have it play videos, which are triggered by an RFID chip. All is well, as long as i use the provided sample Videos. But as soon as I try to use different files, the screen illuminates, but stays black.
To be sure I didn't mess up the code, I went back to the sample scripts of video1. It works with the provided AVI File. So neither a software nor a hardware issue. But again, my own videos fail as discribed above.
I tried different ways to create the viedeo files, none of which worked.
The things I tried:
- Convert mp4 Video online to avi
- resize mp4 videos to 480x270 and a bitrate of 1000
- converted mpeg files with EVE Asset Builder (2.7.1) from Bridgetek to avi.
- I used 480 x 272 AND 479 x 270 Size
I am running out of ideas.
Can anybody help me? I assume, I am missing a tiny step.
I found James Bowmen's Python based Vidoe Converter (gd3asset)
BUT I can neither make heads or tails out of it. I never used Python, I am a Windows User and in the Windpws Command line, i do not find any option to do the Video Conversion...
