Pi MusicBox #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi

“Operate Spotify from your couch with this ready to eat software for the Raspberry Pi.”

A lot of people have problems getting the Pi to work as a remote Spotify-player. This bootable image makes it a lot easier. As a bonus, it includes AirTunes support.

Features

  • Working Spotify server based on Mopidy, which can be remotely controlled with a nice browser-interface, or with an MPD-client
  • AirTunes streaming
  • No need for tinkering, no need to use the Linux commandline
  • USB Audio support (supporting all kinds of USB soundcards, speakers, headphones).
  • The analog port works, but the sound quality is not great. Flat so to say. This is a hardware problem (to get the Pi as cheap as it is, they had to use cheap hardware to produce sound). An external USB soundcard is recommended for better sound quality.
  • Wifi support (WPA, if the Pi-kernel supports your wifi-adapter)
  • This image is also a great way to get started with tinkering for other ways of using the Pi as a Music playing device, because it solves a lot of problems. (Mopidy can e.g. be modified to play local music-files, but it’s not enabled at the moment.)

Requirements

  • Working Raspberry Pi
  • Speakers/amplifier (analog or USB)
  • SD Card, 2GB minimum (tested on a 4GB model. It can probably run on a 1GB, but then you need to resize the partitions)
  • Computer with a modern browser; tablet or phone. The webinterface is tested with recent versions of Firefox, Chrome and iOS (iPad/iPhone), modern versions of Android (Chrome Mobile, Firefox Mobile). Internet Explorer version 10 works with the webinterface, earlier versions don’t. You can also use an MPD client to connect.
  • Spotify Premium account for streaming.
