Intent is to create a USB thumb drive for PCs that auto-play movies and photos on that thumb drive. Open source is preferred.
Research of photo frame options made me think of Kodi, and research on ready-to-run Kodi distros led me to LibreELEC. (FYI OpenELEC is for gadgets (PI, custom hardware; LibreELEC is for PC and bigger things.)
Note that this is a very technical process. You need to know how to work with partitions and edit scripts. We’re making LibreELEC do things it doesn’t really want to, so there’s no easy way around this.
