Creating a Youtube Player for the Developmentally Disabled
Hello, I am a member of a student group at my university that helps local non-profits with engineering projects. One of our projects is to make a Youtube player with a few large simple buttons that can be plugged into a hdmi port and automatically start playing Youtube videos from some channel when powered on.
A Raspberry Pi was the first logical choice for this project, but the 2nd gen Pi that we got had a lot of trouble even playing a Youtube video consistently in the Epiphany browser , and the page would often have a glitch (two videos playing, the play button won't go away from the middle of the screen, etc.)
Does anyone have any ideas for where we could go from here- either with another workable solution with the Pi or some other kind of hardware (another competitor to the Pi, or even a modded Chromecast?)
