small media player for projectors?

I read about an external media player device, small, that one could hook up the projector and it will play back video files. I never saved the info and am hoping that someone here can offer a link... I have a gallery installation project with multiple projectors on the ceiling and would love to avoid a laptop or massive cables.
Thanks! - John

I installed a gallery show last year that required about a dozen HD media players and we used these less expensive units:
The Micca Speck G2 is 1080p playback running at 5v. This allowed the units to operate using a usb to power jack cable (not supplied with unit) straight from the back of the display, so no extra power cable to run, and HDMI signal into the monitors. The units operated for 14 weeks without any disruption or over heating.
These are a much cheaper option than say Brightsign units for direct looping video/audio file playback.

@bonemap Thanks! That's it!! How does it do with looping a video clip? - John

From what I recall the Micca player has a near seamless loop, and better than many other domestic media players in my experience.

You can also use a iphone/ipad/ipod for this:

@jjhp3 brightsign units are amazing, they work really well and can do seamless loops and sync across lots of players. they also have OSC control so you can control them remotely easily. Older HD units are easy to find second hand.
