Completed a #raspberrypi  project for a client. A fun, totally different, project then I'm used to.

http://w.xuv.be/projects/raspi_video_loop
Was of great service, but the "Transcoding a video to h264" step was actually really involved. brew saved my butt, by allowing me to easily install ffmpeg. FFmpeg allowed me to convert my supplied video to this mysterious .h246 format.

After I cleared that hurdle there were a few hurtles getting crontab to work (required sudo and removing the filename so that I authored the cronfile right there) and auto login http://raspberrypi.stackexchange.com/questions/3873/auto-login-with-gui-disabled-in-raspbian
XBMC, a media center that has been adapted for the Rapsberry Pi seemed a nice starting point to get a video looping. But although it works great as a media center, it doesn't offer the video loop feature we hoped for. And it also loads unnecessary interfaces and menus we didn't need for this ...

Update on this project. The .h246 player is essentially useless for someone who can't render .h246 files.

I revisited this project from another angle. Note: I reformatted SD card and installed raspian making sure to enable ssh and opting to not autoboot the GUI.

A) Automatically mounting usb drive http://kwilson.me.uk/blog/force-your-raspberry-pi-to-mount-an-external-usb-drive-every-time-it-starts-up/ mounting to /media/usbdrive/

B) Followed advice from user 'nohlman' but with variations: http://www.raspberrypi.org/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=38&t=8042&start=75
1 - download binary of the looping branch of omxplayer listed in comments of https://github.com/huceke/omxplayer/pull/127#commits-pushed-2fee92f
2 - ftp files to home/pi directory of pi
3 - use startx to load up gui and copy usr directory to / of sd card (I had to use the dropdown and open the directory as root usr) overwriting when prompted
4 - I had to modify the permissions of the various copied files so that I could execute.
5 - I got 'omxplayer -L /media/usbdrive/*' working
6 - autologin http://raspberrypi.stackexchange.com/questions/3873/auto-login-with-gui-disabled-in-raspbian
7 - made file called vidplayer.sh in home/pi:
#!/bin/sh       
omxplayer -L /media/usbdrive/*
8 - make sure permissions are 755
9 - 'sudo crontab -e' add line:@reboot/home/pi/vidplayer.sh

"Facebook and Twitter (and most other social channels) are simply additional outlets to carry out your overall marketing plan. Keep that in mind at all times."
