Heliconia is a simple shell script that facilitates searching through and playing video collections.

Requirements:

There are two items in the shell script that needed to be changed to reflect your environment before it can be use.

1. Location of video collection

Change the variable video to point to the location of your video collection.

2. Video player

I am a mplayer user, change mplayer -fixed-vo -fs -loop 0 -ontop -geometry 100%:100% to totem for example if you prefer to use totem or any other video player of your choice.

Usage:

Upon running Heliconia, you will be presented with a few options, currently they are:

[F]ind, [S]how Result, [P]lay, [Q]uit:

The usage of Heliconia revolves around those options until you opt to exit from the script by selecting the last option.

To select an option, type the associated letter in bracket and press Enter.

Anyway, it is intuitively easy to figure out how it works by following the on-screen prompts.

What's New in This Release:

Bug fixed:

find syntax error. Added ' around file extension. Also doing without the video_type variable since ' doesn't go well in it.
