Hello Bo.

You don't need a desktop to view a video on the RPI.
I have used CVLC and OMXPlayer to view videos on
headless raspbian installations.
when i say "headless" i mean raspbian lite , without desktop.

CVLC has a coomand where one can select the video output module.
was wondering if ffplay does too.

I am new to ffmpeg/ffview , that is why i am not familiar with
it yet and try to learn how to use it.
