I’m working on a Raspberry Pi as a music player in my car. I’m putting all my music on a SSD disk in lossless FLAC. I’ve already got hold of a 2×16 character LCD with six button from Adafruit that only uses two pins for communication with I2C. It’s easy to program and it has four different background colors.
When setting up a Raspberry Pi with SqueezePlug, my favorite distribution for setting up a music server I always get the error message “avahi-daemon disabled because there is a unicast .local domain” because I have a lot of Apple equipment configured with Bonjour. To fix it, all you need to do is to edit
and change the line:
then restart the Avahi-daemon with
We’ve finally got interrupt capability on the Raspberry Pi for GPIO programming in Python using RPi.GPIO.
Interesting! Saving this link for later experimenting. Need buttons for my Carputer Raspberry Pi.
When I’m not at home I use my iPhone or iPad and connect to the internet using either 3G or public wifi. I want to configure my mobile device to setup an encrypted VPN tunnel and route all traffic through it, so I have a safe browsing experience. Fortunately, there now is an OpenVPN app available on iOS that allows you to do that! Please install this app using the App Store, and continue reading to set it all up.
Looks like another great use for a Raspberry Pi! I’ll try it out when I get hold of my third one.
I love my music playback setup that consists of a couple of Squeezebox V3 players in different rooms so I can listen to music in lossless format wherever I am in the apartment. With the iPeng HD app on my iPad, I have a nice interface for controlling the players with album art and other nice features. But the best part is that I can playback high resolution audio directly on my iPad using the Camera Kit USB adapter and an HRT HeadStreamer DAC portable USB headphone amplifier. But I wanted a small, cheap and eco-friendly server for hosting my music files and wondered if I could use the Raspberry Pi. And here’s my findings.
