A simple app.bin to loop video playback
  	      by Denis Roio aka Jaromil

Website: http://nimk.nl/syncstarter

PLoop is an app.bin for the WDLXTV homebrew firmware that, once put
into an usb storage connected to the WDTV device, automatically starts
the playback of the first file in the 'video' directory of that

The playback will loop indefinitely for that file and there won't ever
be any graphical interface shown: the device becomes an on/off
solution ideal for exhibition spaces and musea deploying such
technology to show videos.

** Usage and compatibility

PLoop only works on a specific hardware configuration: WD HD Live
players running B-Rad's WDLXTV firmware, something artists themselves
can afford for approx 100EUR on the consumer market.

** Support and warranty

We release Ploop as free and open source (Affero GNU GPL v3) in the
hope it will be useful, but WITHOUT ANY WARRANTY. If you use it
publicly you should abide to the license and mention the use of this
