Radio replacement basically create my own little radio program that is never interrupted by anything and that only plays music that I do like, and I wanted to be able to do that without having to run my PC all the time. So I remembered a feature that the move it internet radio has and you can see in the menu we do have an option called USB playback. That was the idea that I had plug in an external hard drive into there and then access the music. From this thing and have it play all day long? Well, that was the plan, so I guess you can tell that didn’t work out and it sure didn’t now the first thing the silly USB – and this does not have enough oomph to spin up an external hard drive. So a little three and a half inch unit that I was going to use didn’t work, so I went with a USB thumb. Drive put some mp3 files on the air, because this thing will only do mp3. It will not even do WAV mp3 that’s. The only thing that this will do it will detect a file system on the drive. So if you have some subfolders, you can go through this menu system and access them, and all that the most advanced thing that this will do aside from that is once the one mp3 file has finished playing, it can go to the next one going by the Name, there is no random playback mode there, isn’t even a skip, go to the next track thing.

This it’ll do playback one after the other and that’s it. So this has got to be the most pathetic media player I’ve ever seen. So I was kind of disappointed with that and well did some research and I finally came up with a solution that is very, very versatile and I guess you would have never expected me working with with one of those things, but here it is just got it Today, a Raspberry Pi let’s take a look at the whole thing, so the setup is well. We have this high tech, Raspberry, Pi housing custom made, as you can no doubt see, and we have the unit itself. This is the B version, which is unfortunate. I wanted to have the non plus version because it still works with standard size as d cards, but I couldn’t get it in the local at a chronic story. I only had the B version with 512mb RAM and the micro SD slot, so I had to spend another 9.99 for a micro SD card class 10 card. Of course you want to be running fast cards. What do we have setup wise? Well, power comes in right. There, through a micro USB I’m, just using my USB hub to power the whole thing the HDMI cable goes to the monitor and I got to say I’m quite impressed I mean well. Actually I am. I am impressed about basically anything about this little thing I mean it’s, it’s, tiny, it’s, absolutely tiny, but it’s.

It will do high definition, video playback and all that jazz quite remarkable, and I mean this does get a pretty damn good picture on this 2k 27 inch display that I have right here, and I only have it set to 720p at the moment, not even full Hd, it can do that as well. Of course, this is the combined that’s another thing about the more modern version. This gives you a combined check, so this will do analog video as well as analog audio. However, unlike with camcorders with a similar connector on this one, they have the setup in a different way: the connections. So if you hook up a pair of headphones you’re, not listening to the video signal on the one channel like you do with with camcorders, we have Ethernet right here and I do have it connected to the Internet for some reason: it’s kind of unnecessary mouse and Keyboard has hooked up right there and then down there. We have a 64 gigabyte. Usb thumb drive that contains some music that we are listening to right now kind of disappointing. There we have my nice three and a half inch external hard drive. It contains a 320 gigabyte Drive that’s plenty of space for all of my music that I have, but also this thing won’t power, the damn thing. So when I put this into a proper housing, which I will eventually once I have all the software up and running what I’m going to do is I’m just going to take the data pins from one of these jacks and I’m, going to replace a 5 volt Power supply with an external one so that it will run this thing.

The SD card micro SD card sits down there, so what’s going on on the software side of things. Well, I did do some research and I found a Linux distribution. That’Ll run on the Raspberry Pi, it is called it’s going to come up down there in this. This news feed eventually it’s called open l, ik e l e C, and this is basically a very basic system that will only run a media center called Cody. This is this used to be called the xbox media center or XBMC. So you hook up your thumb drive and you can import all the files on the drive into the library, which means that you know they only pop up right here on the screen. They are not actually copied onto the SD card and then of course, as you can see, I have it set to German language for convenience, so we got music right there and we can access artists, albums, songs files, database and add ons, which I don’t have any. Once you got the thing started up once you got it playing, you can set it let’s see it can show some animations on here. I got that turn off no need to doing so and right. There is the shuffle mode, so we can have random playback. Essentially, this is this is what I was looking for. What I would like to ultimately be able to do with this is: I want to put this into a box, and the box is going to have an AC input, it’s going to have some stereo RCA output, jacks and possibly some buttons on the front that’s going To be the problem, the interface now I have already tried, you can just kill the power to this and turn it back on and it’s not going to upset anything.

So I can just cut power to this and turn it back on and it will start up. However, it will not start to play automatically. You will have to say play back some music. It will memorize that you were in random playback mode and it will continue to do so once you have the playback started. So essentially, I will have to come up with something basically now ideally I’d like to have on the front of my box a skip forward or you know, go to another one button and you know start playback button or pause button or whatever you can by the Way do that these things right here. These are all pins and you can assign them to do various different things. Get rid of the monitor. I don’t want to have a monitor hooked up to the stereo system, get rid of the mouse, get rid of the keyboard, and just you know just do everything, as you know, with this thing alone, standalone thing now something that I could do is I could program My smartphone yeah, I have a smartphone. I could actually do something smart with it. Finally and remote control this thing somehow you can set that up. I’Ll have to figure out how to do that. So maybe, if I do that it’ll be all good to go. I can use the mobile phone to start the playback in this box that’s. Basically, what I’ll have to figure out.

I want to get rid of all these riffles and want to be able to remote control this thing and just have it sitting in the box. As part of the stereo system, well, thank you for watching and if you have some advice, what I could do in order to get rid of all these peripherals and be able to control this in a nice and comfortable way or maybe even make those so front Panel buttons work somehow tell me, and of course, if you say well, this is this is absolute totally the wrong thing for you for what you want to do with it. You can also suggest a different Linux distribution. As I said, the requirement is, I want to be able to turn on the thing I want to be able to plug in hard to strive. It should read all the files off of the heart to strive and play them back randomly that’s requirement.

  1. Wow, I have that same Onkyo CD player. Good video. Also nice Marantz receiver, I have the 2270, they are great! MP3 only is kind of crappy, I have a $20 Lepai amplifier that will play MP3, WMA and AAC! I also would not see you messing with a Raspberry Pi, what is the difference between the B+ and the regular version?

    1. There are a variety of different versions at this point, I guess Wikipedia can tell you a lot more about each version than I could. The main differences between the versions are the number of port pins, the amount of RAM and the connections available.


  3. My advice would be to buy a nice little DAC card for your Raspberry ! I have the IQaudio one which sounds very good ! Moreover, if it’s for an audio only use, you should have a look at other programs like Runeaudio or Volumio which you can easily set up to play automatically on boot !

  4. Finds ja immer wieder schlimm, dass heutige Musik-Anlagen oder sowas wie dein Player nur MP3 können und nix anderes. Außerdem wird die Firmware auch immer billiger. Bei unserer Anlage (Pioneer MCS 737) kann man, während man Musik von meinem Server abspielt, noch nicht mal spulen. Und Pause liegt auf der Stopp-Taste. Videos nimmt das Teil nur in avi. Musste extra meine komplette Musikbibliothek nach MP3 umwandeln und alle meine Videos von mov oder mp4 nach avi. Ich hasse sowas. 😀

  5. It is exactly what I would want to do! BUT: How do I get it to work over WLAN with security? All the music files are stored on a server and the client must play different playlist depending on what time of the day it is. how to do that? Also how do I make it power-outage safe so I do not have to worry about restoring Linux using my desktop and a backup image after each power failure?

  6. 1. Get rid of OpenElec (in my opinion overkill for this task)
    2. Install raspbian
    3. Learn how to ssh into your machine (if you are a windows user, you will need putty for this)
    4. Install a small media player, for example mplayer (sudo apt-get install mplayer)
    5. Learn how to use this player (mplayer –help)
    6. If you found the right commands, go on and make it start on boot (/etc/rc.local)

    The last step will be mapping the GPIO-pins to commands.

    Wenn du hilfe benötigst so kannst du mich gerne kontaktieren,
    kann per Teamviewer oder Skype Unterstützung leisten.
    Alles weiß ich nicht auswendig, aber finden werd ich es schon 😉

    1. Have you checked out specific audio OS for RPi yet? Our system offers various solutions for audio playback out of the box, including the open-source multiroom solution Squeezebox. It plays every pretty much every format, lets you synchronize players and most importantly, can be controlled and configured completely via web interface on any smartphone, tablet or PC.
      We would love to hear your thoughts on our OS because I think you could benefit from it greatly.

  7. Mehrere Dinge: Wie wärs mit MPD? Dann könntest du auch mit buttons oder z.B. MPDroid aufm Handy das Teil steuern. Auch ein Display wäre möglich.

    Strom einfach abschalten ist gar keine gute Idee, das klappt etwa 10x, dann kannst du neuinstallieren.

    Ich habe mir für MPD sogar einen FM-Radiosender mit RDS-Songtitelübertragung gebastelt, ist alles möglich 🙂

    1. Ich habe noch nie wirklich etwas mit Linux gemacht, aber zum Glück habe ich einen Freund, der sich damit auskennt. Wenn ich hier nicht weiter komme – dann kriegt er das hin 😀

    2. So, nach einem Abend experimentieren und mehreren Wutanfällen funktioniert das Teil NICHT. Ich habe jetzt erstmal die Schnauze voll 😛

    3. @DrCassette Gut, das muss nicht beim ersten Mal klappen. Hast du einen belibigen Chat-Account ala Jabber oder ähnliches? /oder TS3? 

      Generell: Wie weit bist du gekommen? Konntest du dich bereits via SSH einloggen? 

    4. @Tobias Mädel
      Vielen Dank für das Hilfe-Angebot, das hat man auf YouTube nicht oft, aber wie gesagt, ich habe genug davon. Wie weit ich gekommen bin, kann ich gar nicht sagen, ich habe mich nach diversen Anleitungen im Internet gerichtet. Wie gesagt, ich habe absolut keine Ahnung davon, und bei so einem Software-Getüddel verliere ich zugegeben auch furchtbar schnell die Geduld. Ich habe mir gerade Rune Audio heruntergeladen, mal schauen ob / wie das funktioniert.

  8. You picked a bad time to purchase a Pi B+ – the Pi2 model B came out last week and is 6 times faster at the same price!
    But on a positive note, your B+ has better audio quality than the original B, due to improvements in the power circuitry design.
    For remote control of Kodi via an android smartphone or tablet you could try an app called Yatse – default connection settings for openelec on Pi are: hostname: openelec username: xbmc password: xbmc

    1. The Pi2 is a bit overkill for just music playback. I have a Pi1 B+ as a 720p HTPC for my small TV in my bedroom and while it can be slightly clunky at times, the video playback is smooth and it does what I want. I tried streaming but I think just downloading first is better anyways. Don’t watch much TV anyways.

    2. @TheDutchOwner’s Tech Channel – Part of TheDutchOwner’s Technology Empire
      Yep I agree, although some Kodi add-ons can be kind of slow on the PI1. The video playback/decoding is handled by a separate GPU that works alongside the ARM. This GPU is the same on both Pi1 and Pi2, so actual video playback is the same on either version.

    3. In the store where I bought the RPI, they now also offer the version 2, however, the price is considerably higher.

  9. The Muzak “Encompass V” SD card music player device would be perfect for you, except that it’s totally proprietary — it even uses a custom format for its SD cards, so you can’t read them on a PC — and it only has a mono audio output (actually two of them, playing two different songs at the same time, designed for serving two rooms or areas of a building). But I happened to get one with a pretty good variety of music already loaded on it, and I’ve had it running non-stop for several years now. I showed it in this video:

  10. What about using a tiny laptop maybe with winamp on?  Or have winamp on your Pi if you can?
    I find its the best player out there and it works with them mix cds also as other players seem to always have gaps in the mixes like on the ministry of sound stuff but winamp works great with these.  

  11. This is similar to what I do. I have OSMC installed, and I have a free OSMC phone app that I use to control it so no need for monitor, keyboard or mouse (after initial set up). Of course there are more complex and elegant solutions such as building a custom touch screen front end but with the app I can control it anywhere in the house wirelessly and friends can even add music to the play list at gatherings and such.

    1. +darius5171 At the time of shooting this video I had a Samsung Galaxy S (the first generation). I have since upgraded to a Sony Experia Z3 Compact.

  12. I had a Marantz 2265B just like your unit in the video. Had to get rid of it, because the power transformer started humming quite loudley… Tried everything to dempen the sound by placing rubbers under screws, tightening the screws, nothing worked. I sold it to a collector who wanted it really badly because of the mint condition the unit was in, which it was, apart from the transformer humming… Now I have a Marantz SR5012 AV Receiver, which sounds really good! But still, I really miss my old receiver… I also put LED-lights in it, just like you did. Nice video!!

  13. I had the idea of having all my music play in an endless rotation about 45 years ago when I strapped a battery powered cassette deck to the family riding lawn mower, put on headphones with 1/4″ plug and rocked out while mowing three acres of grass all summer long. In mono.

  14. How many volt & amps is your power bus feeding the pi? I have 5v 2.49amp and see on the screen sometimes a electricity bolt
