Make a touchscreen jukebox to fit in the palm of your had with Raspberry Pi. via Lifehacker
You have a ton of options for accessing your computer’s music library from your stereo, but most require a bit of technical know-how to actually use. You can build a jukebox with a Raspberry Pi, a tiny micro-computer, that anyone can use, even if they don’t know what a Raspberry Pi is.
When you’re done with this project, you’ll have a tiny, touch screen jukebox in your living room that can play, control, and pick songs from your music library on another PC (or your network attached storage), then play them on your stereo. The interface here is easy to understand, so it’s great for parties or a house where a few non-geeks might want to get in on the playlist without learning a complicated system, your computer, a Wi-Fi password, or anything else. Better still, it all works on its own network, so no need to worry about pairing devices or any of that. To finish this project, you’ll need a little knowledge of the command line, but that’s it.
