External Subtitles for Video Installations (extsub)


New member
I thought this project I'm working on may be useful for anyone peeking at these boards:


External Subtitles for Video Installations (extsub) plays fullscreen video (up to full HD) while simultaneously processing and displaying subtitles in one or more selectable languages on a separate graphic LCD display. It is an affordable (~$150 USD per unit), easy-to-build, easy-to-maintain, open source project using completely off-the-shelf hardware. It uses a Raspberry Pi to display video and talk to the Arduino via serial, which sends subtitles to a CFAG24064A-series display.

extsub is still in development but the prototype is stable.
