Re: Playing Video on RPi?

OpenELEC is a distro built around XBMC, nothing else inside. Raspbmc is a minimal Debian distro, so you can install anything you want from console and reconfigure to your liking just like any other Debian derivative. Debian with XBMC will be just plain old Debian with unoptimized build of XBMC. Rasp...

Re: Playing Video on RPi?

Chromium supports HTML5 video and can be installed. But it does not play YT videos. I don't know why.

I don't think installing Opera Mini is possible at the moment - no J2ME is available.

Re: MP3 playback

Chromium browser is already available in Debian. But they have a very old version, so I'm not sure of its capabilities regarding HTML5. They have version 6. If I recall correctly, it should play vids on YouTube and play MP3s.

Re: Youtube on PI

On Debian just run the following command in console:

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install chromium-browser
That will install Chromium browser which should play YouTube without problems.

Re: How to 'snapshot' a Pi?

I vote for rsync solution - just don't dump everything. You don't need swap contents or logs. But simpler way is to dump card on a PC.

Re: Flash Player on Debian

There is absolutely no way of getting Flash for RasPi. Adobe is a closed-source developer and the only version they made for ARM CPUs is Android one which requires ARMv7 CPU with NEON extension. That makes RasPi unable to run it even if someone ports Android.

Re: List of open source games that can be ported to the R-Pi

I would like to note, that some of Quake 3 Arena graphics are freely available as a part of Q3A demo, which is easily downloadable from id Software website. I used their demos a lot to test different engines like ioquake.

Re: Android On RasPi

ICS CM9 is running on my Acer Liquid with 256 megs. Far from perfect, but there are a lot of ways to optimize memory usage. For example, switching to 16 bit rendering instead of 32 bits and use software GUI (without HW). That will make ICS run the same as GB - just fine. So it is possible to put any...
