+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
+device.
+
+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
+software in the documentation of your exhibition or installation, even
+if with a short notice as "Running Ploop software by Jaromil @ NIMk".
+
+In case you need assistance to setup your own HD sync-starter, you can
+contact us and ask a quote, see details on http://nimk.nl/syncstarter
