Raspberry Slideshow is an operating system for the Raspberry Pi focused on image and video slideshows. It plays all media contained in a USB key, fetched from a Windows (Samba) share, from a Webserver or FTP server. The operating system can refresh the media list at given intervals as well, in order to slide images and videos according to remote changements.

Marco Buratto has just released Raspberry Slideshow 10.0, which features an upgrade of its underlying Raspbain base operating system from Jessie to Stretch. As of now, all the range of Pi micro-computers is supported.

Full version 10.0 changelog

  • the underlying operating system has been moved to Raspbian Stretch; the overall performance is sensibly better;
  • a Systemd unit file now replaces the older SysV init-script for launching the slideshow;
  • smoother transitions between images and videos;
  • some minor improvements on code.

Please note that it is not rare that the latest build of Windows 10 (Creators Update) gives permission/write errors when dealing with USB keys’s writing. Don’t worry, it’s just Windows: retry until success.
