Playing Hardware Accelerated Video on Raspberry Pi 1/2/3 & Zero

omxplayer seem to be the best player, almost 0% cpu usage!

the above command can be run via ssh connection

there is no gui, you only get fullscreen, its still better than other players
omxplayer -h gives you more info

banding/color issues? try forcing 32-bit
