In this Raspberry Pi Volumio tutorial, we are showing you the basics of installing the headless music player, Volumio. We will also be walking you through how to get Wifi up and running on your Raspberry Pi through Volumio’s interface. Additionally, the tutorial also shows you the steps to go through to install and setup Volumio’s Spotify plugin.
Volumio is an open source, headless music player that is designed to be able to play almost every single music file, providing support for MP3, FLAC, WAV, AAC, ALAC, DSD and many more. In addition to support of a large variety of audio codecs it also provides support for UPNP\DLNA, Airplay, Spotify and Web Radios making it an all in one audio player. This project is very similar to the Pi music box that I covered in an earlier tutorial.
