Problem with images in playlist.

Good afternoon,

Ive installed FPP yesterday on a raspberry 4b, so far so good, and i can play a media file (video) from the GPIO. (they're on the TV, connected by HDMI)
But i've also made a playlist, with images to play when i press a button.

The playlist is also playing, as i can see on the status page.

But there is nothing on the screen (HDMI).

Can someone tell me what might be the problem? Ive read the manual, but cant find anything there.




What version of FPP is this? I don't see the images in the playing playlist in your screenshot.

Did you setup a pixel overlay model to display the images to and select that model when you created the playlist entries?


It's version 7.5.

I checked the box "Create Overlays Automatically From Outputs"
And could'nt select an overlay model in the playlist.

I thought that this was only necessery for LED pixelboards

Got it, i've entered a new overlay, with the "frame buffer"
Assigned this in the playlist, and now it's working!

If you didn't restart fppd after checking that checkbox, I believe the models wouldn't appear in the dropdown in the playlist editor.

I'm glad you got it working, thanks for reporting back.
