up your Raspberry Pi to act as a Chromecast device. While we can’t implement the same protocol that Chromecast relies on we can replicate this on the Raspberry Pi.
We replicate its behavior by using two key pieces of software on the Raspberry Pi. The first of these pieces of software is omxplayer. This software handles the video and audio files that are cast to our Raspberry Pi.
Our second piece of software is the OpenMax, Image viewer. We utilize this piece of software to handle images sent to the device.
Each Friday is PiDay here at Adafruit! Be sure to check out our posts, tutorials and new Raspberry Pi related products. Adafruit has the largest and best selection of Raspberry Pi accessories and all the code & tutorials to get you up and running in no time!
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
