I would like to use ubuntu server 12.04 to play a repeating video loop on a connected tv. There won't be any interaction with the system once it is live, except remotely.
Additionally, I need to be able to push an updated video file/files to the server remotely and have them play as soon as they are done. I'm not worried about the technology required to send the files to the server as I can handle that, but I would like to know which video player for ubuntu server to use and how to set up the server to play video.
So the ideal setup would be we just connect this server to a tv, turn it on, and then it begins playing the video loop.
