While there isn't any support for casting the desktop to Chromecast (yet), you could instead try playing the video files on the Raspberry Pi itself. This could be achieved by using sshfs, which displays the contents of a folder on your computer on the Raspberry Pi by using SSH.

Ok, it was not Arista's fault. When I re-encoded the srt file in utf8 (using an online encoding service) the problem was gone. So apparently for some reason some of the strings where not properly encoded in utf8.

If you want to make a kiosk, make a kiosk. Simply put, stop loading Unity and all that and just load VLC. I've been over this quite recently with another user. That should get you into a clean environment. Obviously they're loading a script as a user called thomas, but it shouldn't take too much imagination to customise that to your usage: exec su -c ...

The hardware specs are low, you'd be better with lubuntu or xubuntu. But you can remove fancy effects from unity as well. Browse the software center for Unity Tweak and install it. Remove transparencies, active blur from dash and so on. That may help.

Can you play DVD movies (like those disks from a kiosk) in your system? If no, then you will probably need to install libdvdread and libdvdcss: libdvdread provides the functionality that is required to access many DVDs. It parses IFO files, reads NAV-blocks, and performs CSS authentication and descrambling. libdvdread probes for libdvdcss at runtime and if ...

As of Totem 3.1.4 (in Raring 13.04 and beyond), there is a "rotation plugin" which you can turn on (edit/plugins), and then rotate e.g. via ctrl-r. I think proper rotation should be automatic when there is rotation metadata, and I commented on a relevant Totem bug here: Bug 701950 – Iphone Movies There are also ways to do this in mplayer (and to convert ...
