Have you worn out your Rpi?

Topic says it all but to restate: Has anyone actually "worn out" a Rpi? I'm curious if the Rpi itself has worn out and if overclock was used, and what kind of timeframe you had. Months? Years? If you've had one since the beginning and on full overclock and it's still running great, I'd like to see t...

Online Storage

There's a lot of services such as SpiderOak, (used to be) Ubuntu One, Dropbox, etc... where you start the service, copy files to the predetermined location and it automatically synced to the online storage. But this really only works in a gui and these are mostly for i3, 64.. not arm. Is there anyth...

Re: ffmpeg stream to omxplayer

Hi - omxplayer doesn't support stdin (streaming) A common workaround for now is fifo pipes. I.E. (mkfifo streamer; ffmpeg -video_size 1024x768 -framerate 25 -f x11grab -i :0.0+100,200 -f alsa -ac 2 -i pulse streamer)& omxplayer streamer I didn't test the above but might get you on the right track. I...

Re: you tube vids

Quick grab from google: I have played around with my Raspberry PI for a bit now and a little annoyed I can’t play Flash videos out of the box with Raspbian… So, after hours of workarounds, I finally figured out a 2-step process to play Flash files within Midori and yes, YouTube Videos included… 1). ...

Re: How should I shutdown my pi?

sudo shutdown -h 18:00 # shutdown at 6:00pm sudo shutdown -h +60 # shutdown an hour from now Be careful when issuing future shutdown commands while using ssh If you set that command and the Rpi powers off by some other means (sudo shutdown -h now) and isn't powered to trigger the scheduled one, you...

Can you get to a command line?

Code: Select all

sudo raspi-config
Choose --> Enable boot to Desktop/Scratch
Make your choice (gui should be second one.)

Re: Get started with Pi without any external hardware?

DougieLawson said otherwise about the monitor and keyboard and mouse. And on another mailing list I was told this would be impossible. Do tools ran through a remote command line continue to run when session is closed? In other words, do they all act as daemons? That's actually a UNIX logic I couldn...

Re: Get started with Pi without any external hardware?

I have never used any external hardware (minus a wifi dongle for ones without ethernet) I also use linux mint, so ssh-client comes with it.
