I am looking for a design of a simple audiobook player. I have in mind using a Raspberry Pi and a HiFiBerry DAC HAT, but then I am in doubt on the software. The audiobook is downloaded to a usb stick on another computer and passed on to the Raspberry Pi. The Raspberry Pi shall have at most two buttons, one for PLAY and one for STOP.
Please, what is the most suitable software to use for this?
I have looked at VLC, but is that the best choice?
I will write some controlling software in C or C++.
