How to Trigger Video or Audio playback from E1.31 source ?

Good morning,

I am trying to trigger an audio or video playback from an seperate E1.31 controller, sending E1.31 packets to a PI, running FPP.

I feel I'm close, but it's not quite working yet...

This is what I've done so far:
- installed FPP latest version on a Pi-3
- created one E1.31 input universe ( 1 - 512 )
- uploaded content (avi and mp3)
- created several playlists with the above content
- in stand-alone mode, tested to play these playlists —> works fine on screen and audio
- created an event ( 1/1 )that contains a known working playlist with audio content
- set trigger channels to 1 and 2
- sent values 0/0 ,  1/1 ,  10/10 and a slow fade over all 512 channels 0 —> 255

- created a dummy dmx output on ttyama0 ( not sure if this is needed, didn't make a difference)
- tested all FPP modes ( stand-alone, master, slave, bridge (showed incomming 1.31 packets)

—> There is no audio or video coming out of the Pi...

What am I missing?
