Viera Play

Viera Play uses DLNA to play video files on Panasonic Viera TVs from the command line.


Install it from Rubygems:

$ gem install viera_play

Set your TV's control URL as the TV_CONTROL_URL environment variable (using the IP of your TV):

$ export TV_CONTROL_URL=''


Run viera_play from the command line, giving it the path of a video file to play:

$ viera_play ~/my-video-file.mp4

Control-C will stop playback and shutdown the web server. The TV remote can be used to pause/rewind/fast-foward the video as well.
