Re: Raspberry Pi as an audio web server, not player

Thank you for the replies. I actually did find a nodejs project that should suit my needs, and with it being open source I can modify it if it doesn't. https://github.com/benkaiser/node-music-player My plan is to go buy a 64GB micro SD card today to store Raspbian and my music collection. Then just ...

Raspberry Pi as an audio web server, not player

Hey everyone, I'm looking to see if there is a project or software out there for the Raspberry Pi that would have it act as a media server / web server for my music library. The goal would be to have my own local server that would allow clients to connect via web browser and play music through the c...

Re: driving two 3.3v motors

What I was hoping to use the Pi over the Arduino is so I can easily connect a wireless USB adapter. Eventually it would be nice to have it controlled over a network/internet on a mobile device or another computer. Plus it makes a good learning experience, its just nice to have a start.

Re: driving two 3.3v motors

I do have one more question regarding the project. After some research it can be easy to fry the entire Raspberry Pi with voltage spikes, and i believe motors are notorious for this sort of thing. So what would you guys recomend to protect the Raspberry Pi from the whole circut? Any H-Bridge chip s...

Re: driving two 3.3v motors

Yeah for now just on/off. i may end up doing a speed adjustment in the futre, but i will deal with that when the time comes. I currently have an H-bridge working on an Arduino with the two motors, so soon i will adapt it to the Raspberry Pi.

In that case do you need PWM?
I'm not that sure exactly what PWM entails, but I am taking a guess that I don't need it if all I am doing is sending HIGH and LOW values.

Re: driving two 3.3v motors

Alright thanks guys i'm really just looking to turn them on or off based on a command via software. i don't need anything incredibly specific for timing. Also would the circuit in the link be ok for the Raspberry Pi to handle?

driving two 3.3v motors

Hi, I am looking to build a simple RC car using the Raspberry Pi and and two 3.3v motors(one to drive, the other to steer). The concept I had in mind was to adapt This Arduino Project to the Pi. The way this works is through PWM outputs of the Arduino to drive an IC chip which would then tell the mo...

Installing JDK 7u6 on Raspian soft-float ABI

I was wondering if anyone had any instructions for getting it installed properly, I have been working at it for a couple of hours now with no success.

I made sure to use a fresh copy of Raspian with the soft-float ABI, which is supported by the Oracle JDK 7u6.

Thanks

Re: Using VNC to connect to RPi, shows LXDE instead of XFCE4

Yeah I noticed that if a LXDE isn't started it will by default open one for you. If I have an XFCE4 session started, it will still open a LXDE session beside it. I also tried using the built in VNC application in Mac OS X and it doesn't seem to be working. I wonder if it is something that was taken ...

Using VNC to connect to RPi, shows LXDE instead of XFCE4

When I VNC from my Mac to the Raspberry Pi running Raspian with both LXDE and XFCE4 installed it will only show me the LXDE environment instead of the XFCE4 screen that I am using. Is there anyway of changing this? I am using the Thight VNC Server on the RPi and Chicken of the VNC client on the Mac.
