Raspberry Slideshow is an operating system for the Raspberry Pi microcomputer lineup used for digital signage when you need images’ or videos’ slideshows.

It plays all media contained in a USB key, fetched from a network share, from a Web/FTP server, from a folder of your Dropbox account and loaded via scp as well.

The operating system can refresh the media list in order to slide images and videos according to any remote change (addition or deletion of a media file). An optional photos’ rotation based on embedded EXIF informations is available.

v14 release changelog:

  • Refresh of the remote media list rewritten, now performed asynchronously by a pool of “watchdog workers”. This drastically reduces the blank between loops when the refresh feature is enabled;
  • Dropbox feature restored (it was broken since Dropbox changed their API);
  • Informational output on some TVs when playing videos should be now removed, thanks to Sean Monaghen;
  • system has been updated to the latest Raspberry Pi OS Lite (formerly known as Raspbian Lite).

You can download the operating system and have a look at its manual in the project’s website.
