A front end to playing videos with omxplayer (or any configured video player). This tool reads in databases found under the media mount point in PiBox Media Player (from a PiBox Media Server) and display the list of videos available along with metadata. The databases are created using the VideoLib application, typically on a USB stick that can be plugged into the media server.

Think of VideoFE as a really lightweight XBMC, without OpenGL or an embedded video player or even an embedded database tool. And it just feeds video file paths to an external video player. Future plans may embed playback of digital television as well.

VideoFE is intended specifically for use with the PiBox environment but coulde be used (possibly with appropriate patches applied) in conjunction with VideoLib for general use on any Linux distribution.
