How to build the best Raspberry Pi media server
by editor : Be the first to leave a comment
There’s been a lot going on recently about using the Raspberry Pi as a media server using XBMC – which coincidentally has released a new software update in June and is promising another update in July.
As an XBMC HTPC, the Pi supports full 1080P video playback, supports most major codecs, most if not all XBMC add-ons, and a reasonably responsive GUI.
XBMC is a free and open source media player application developed by the XBMC Foundation, a non-profit technology consortium. XBMC is available for multiple operating-systems and hardware platforms, featuring a 10-foot user interface for use with televisions and remote controls. It allows users to play and view most videos, music, podcasts, and other digital media files from local and network storage media and the internet.
