Stream music from YouTube?

Hello! In my AIY project, I want to stream music from YouTube.

Spotify playlist in a Python Script?

Hello! I am firing up the AIY Voice Kit I got with the MagPi a while ago... It works great, added a few of my own commands, just to test it out (in the assistant_library_local_commands.py (or so) file). But now comes the harder part of this project: adding the ability to play music. I've tried this ...

Running Google Assistant alongside own voice commands

Hi! I've set up (again) my old voice kit I got some time ago with the MagPi. I've followed Google's online instructions and it works well. Now I can run the assistant, or run my own commands. But I got a question: is it possible to run the assistant, while also listening for own commands which can b...

Re: DIY Webcam in Finland

Thanks. I don't know everyone, but on the part of this particular island in Finland near Helsinki, I'd probably have some relatives checking on it for free, once a month or twice. Now, is it safe? Well, now that the Pi will be powering on every day for a minute, well, I think that should do, but I m...

Re: DIY Webcam in Finland

Yeah, so I was thinking instead of detecting when it's dark or taking a picture every hour I would power the Pi at noon every day, take a snap, and shut down. I might be using a car battery, but I would still need to look at some details. Main thing is, the battery has to be totally safe and also re...

Re: DIY Webcam in Finland

Thank you for your very detailed reply. As I don't live in Finland and am only there one month a year, nearly all the time in July/August. I've never been there in the winter and I know how dark it is. My idea is it sends me a picture just for fun in the few daylight hours to spare. To come to think...

Re: Speed up x86 Debian on Eee PC

Yep, I'd rather not throw in some RAM because I have another computer, a really good one actually. So the Eee PC wouldn't be a replacement, just a fun little project. Not sure if you'd want to spend $40-$50 upgrading an old Netbook, though... So I will have to investigate what's going on there. Is t...

The old version of the Voice Kit SD Card?

I just fixed up my Voice Kit and it seems to be working perfectly fine, the Google Assistant, at least. But now I'm thinking about adding a few more mods, to make it like a music station or something else. I will be using this guide/repo of mods: https://ktinkerer.co.uk/list-mods-raspberry-pi-aiy-pr...

When I solder it (I've practiced!) should I remove part of the plastic covering and then carefully 'glue' the wire part to the terminal / metal thing?
