Donald Derek shows how to build your own Google TV using Raspberry Pi, NodeJS and Socket.io:

Build your own Google TV

Hackers & makers like to re-invent the wheel, and it’s always fun when you do. So we’re going to build our own version of the Google TV using the following open source technologies:

Hardware:

Software Stack:

  • Raspbian OS – a Debian distro specially made for the rPi
  • NodeJs
    • Socket.io – to handle the connection between our remote and our TV via websockets
    • Express – to handle some basic http requests
    • Omxcontrol – a simple module to control the OMXPlayer which is the best video player on the rPi
  • Chromium Browser
  • OMXPlayer
  • Youtube-dl – a script that let you download youtube videos
  • QuoJS – to handle swipe gestures on the mobile web app
  • HTML5, CSS3 transitions, Javascript, and Moustache as a template engine
  • Youtube API

  1. Hello! I’m really impressed with this project!
    Is it possible to plug a common usb web cam and video call with other users using Skype or Google Hangouts (or anything similar) ?
