Close.
try this:
Code:
#!/bin/sh
zcat ./gmvid.gmv.gz | ./gmplay
assuming gmvid and gmplay are in the same directory as the script.

Which will work assuming you *execute* the script *from* the directory
where as I think ../../../yourscript.sh would break

err I *think* this will fix that.

#!/bin/sh
cd $( dirname "$0" )
zcat ./gmvid.gmv.gz | ./gmplay


hth : )

EDIT: Might need to play with the reference, this is untested. ta. ymmv

Or just

#!/bin/sh
zcat /mnt/us/gmvid.gmv.gz | /mnt/us/gmplay


--- or whatever absolute paths to the video and to the gmplay program. There is no need to keep the videos and the program in the same directory.

I'll try to make a launcher extension out of that.

Does gmplay automatically exit when the video is finished?

Yes. Look at the source code.

I have no idea what's going on inthe source code.
But the extension shouldn't be hard to make then.

IN BIG LUMPS

//==================
// main - start here
//------------------
Here Begins the program

int main(void) {

Set up a value to splat stuff into for timing
int i;

Splat State flag into the Function GMLIB to tell it to set up
(have a look at the code its obvious enough what is happening)

gmlib(GMLIB_INIT);

Decide if we are a kindle with a 4bit or 8bit display and the use the right method
if (ppb-1) { gmplay4(); } else { gmplay8(); }

Continue to do awesome video stuff until...


Get total elapsed time - put it into "i" (tag on a frame count) Print it

i=getmsec()/100; printf("%d frames in %0.1f secs = %2.1f FPS\n",
fc,(double)i/10.0,(double)fc*10.0/i);

when we are done send the Finished State Enumeration
gmlib(GMLIB_CLOSE);

return 0;
}

There are some very clever bits I elide here, but more or less that is what you were discussing.

An extension would have to take into account different files names if you didn't want to rename files. Maybe writing a shell script with something like this that runs from xterm or the like would be better.
Code:
clear
echo "GeekMasters Video Player
"
cd /mnt/us/Videos
ls -w 1 *.gz
echo "
What do you want to play? (File name without .gmv.gz)"
read video
echo Playing $video
sleep 1
zcat ./$video.gmv.gz|/mnt/us/gmplay
Then you just put all your files in a folder called 'Videos' and put gmplay in /mnt/us.

Hey twobob, the attached file words for me. It even has touch support on the touch. Dialog just does not look to great on eink (my opinion).
Attached Files
File Type: zip dialog.zip (63.1 KB, 41 views)

Hi mate. thanks, but i have the exe its the script I am after...
something like:

but this errors...

root@kindle:us> chmod a+r /mnt/us/video.sh
root@kindle:us> /mnt/us/video.sh
/mnt/us/video.sh: line 3: syntax error: "(" unexpected

GNU nano 2.3.1 File: video.sh
Quote:
#!/bin/sh
fileroot=/mnt/us/opt/video
array=( $(ls $fileroot) )
n=0
for (item in ${array[@]})
do
menuitems="$menuitems $n ${item}"
let n+=1
done

dialog --title "Select a file" --menu \
"Choose one of the following or press to exit" \
14 40 6 $menuitems 2> /var/tmp/$$
if [ $? -gt 0 ]; then
rm -f /tmp/$$
clear
echo "Interrupted"
exit 0
fi
selection=${array[$(cat /var/tmp/$$)]}
sleep 1
zcat ./$selection.gmv.gz|/mnt/us/gmplay
Something like that. Im too tired Ill fix it tomorrow.

EDIT: No one wants it so I wont bother fixing it. Sold as seen. Caveat Emptor!

be careful not to put a huge list in /var/tmp !!! it will brick maybe. possibly swith that somewhere safer

Then you just put all your files in a folder called 'Videos' and put gmplay in /mnt/us.
I actually thought of the video extension being a submenu, with all the videos and gmplay in the bin. Then there would be more than one shel scipts, and they would look something like this:

#!/bin/bash

zcat ./gmvid(or whatever the video is called).gmv.gz | ./gmplay

And the menu.json would include several items, and their actions would be shell scripts in the bin directory.
