Raspberry Pi running XBMC using AllCast @Raspberry_Pi #piday #raspberrypi

Dustin Evans shows how to stream media to a RPi with AllCast:

Got my Raspberry Pi running Raspbian (http://www.raspberrypi.org/downloads) to broadcast its own access point using +Adafruit Industries tutorial (http://learn.adafruit.com/setting-up-a-raspberry-pi-as-a-wifi-access-point/overview) and this WiFi adapter they sell http://www.adafruit.com/products/1030.

Once that was all setup I installed XBMC using this guide (http://michael.gorven.za.net/raspberrypi/xbmc)

Now I can connect to my Raspberry Pi using my Galaxy S3 and send local videos to it using +Koushik Dutta ‘s #AllCast app.

Without the need for a router.

Setting up a Raspberry Pi as a WiFi access point – Would you like to use your Pi as a WiFi router? Or maybe have it as a special filtering access point? Setting up a Pi as an access point (AP) is a bit more advanced than using it as a client, but its still only a half hour of typing to configure. If you want to, this tutorial will make it so the Pi broadcasts a WiFi service and then routes internet traffic to an Ethernet cable. Since its all Linux you can go in and update or configure it however you like. (read more)
