Creating a Video Menu

#1
Hi All,

I have a minix NEO U9-H with a few videos on it.

I know I can access them on the device in different ways but what I really want is to be able to access them all via a DVD-style menu with a nice background and company logo on it. This is for an exhibition. Ideally I want to be able to create this screen or at least be able to add a background. and a logo

Is there an app that anyone can recommend on the Google play store that might me able to do this?

Or any other way I can achieve this?

All help greatly appreciated.

Thanks

You may be able to acheive something along these lines with Kodi

use a custom skin ( say Aura)
add your video files to the kodi library
create a widget for the library
you may have to add your own art for the video files ( not sure about that one !)
create your background with logo image and use that as the skin background


again, just a suggestion that may work

update: Just gave this a quick go.

2 issues...I have to access the videos via URL/google drive or YouTube but I need the videos to be offline.

Secondly. The videos are thumbnails in the presentation which is fine but i need them to play at full screen when selected

I think kodi will be your best bet ;)

Thanks, will do. Not at all familiar with Kodi However and can't seem to install another skin on there.
How to Change Skins on Kodi Jarvis / Krypton / Leia
  1. Open Kodi.
  2. Select SYSTEM.
  3. Select Appearance.
  4. Select Skin > Skin.
  5. The next screen that appears shows the skins that you currently have installed. ...
  6. To add skins to your device select Get More.
  7. The next screen will list all the available skins.
  8. If you know what skin you want just scroll down and select it.
Also cannot locate videos on KODI, no idea which folder they will be in

thanks that was a great help. Managed to find my videos and download the confluence skin. Also added a background.

Do you know how to get thumbnails to appear above the navigation bar?

Do you know why though I am losing the background and videos etc each time i turn off my device?

Sorry I dont use Confluence Skin so dont know how to manipulate it.
I use Aura, check it out but might be a bit of a learning curve, google may help !
It shouldnt lose backgrounds or videos when correctly set up.
