Who doesn’t like a fireplace? Who doesn’t like the Yule Log?
….also… who else doesn’t have either?
Nothing is more comfy than a fireplace-fire during those quiet holiday moments. This project brings that to you – thanks to our good friend, the Raspberry Pi.
We’ve all seen “Yule Log” videos. I think they have been around since the days of VHS. The Pi plays those videos. They are the next best thing to having an actual fire.
However, this isn’t just a glorified video player, I took it a little further. Here were my design requirements:
- I didn’t want the Yule Log fun to end, but I also do not want to play the same video on repeat. I want to play a collection of videos – one after another – no repeats!
- I want the video playback system to be quiet. No PC fan sounds, discs spinning, etc.
- Portability is absolutely key… for strategically adding fireplaces where need be.
- And I need a way to cycle through videos if, for some reason, I don’t like the one playing.
