Re: Adding SSL for OwnCloud installation

I'm running my own HTTPS-secured ownCloud server, it's pretty easy to set up. First, you need a domain name. A DynDNS domain should work, I think, or you can get really cheap (>$10 USD/year) domains from sites like Namecheap. Once you have a valid domain, you need an SSL certificate from a CA. I use...

Re: How to view/listen an IP Camera

If the camera's streaming in a common video format, you can probably connect from the Pi with a video streaming application like OMXPlayer or VLC instead of using the web player. What model camera do you have?

Re: [Tutorial] Using the RasPi as a WiFi hostspot (8 Nov 12)

Your distro, RaspbMC, apparently sets its own iptables rules on boot. I don't have an SD card with RaspbMC handy, but try: sudo update-rc.d iptables disable This will stop the custom iptables rules from being loaded on boot. (This won't stop iptables itself from running, just the service that sets t...

After a bit more experimenting, my RPi hot spot is now working as I want :) I'm not entirely sure what I did that made it work...

Re: info-beamer for PI - A digital signage player and more..

Does info-beamer support opening HTTP video streams? I'm currently using omxplayer to play a live video stream (with the "--live" command line option so omxplayer doesn't buffer the stream), but info-beamer would be much more configurable and easier to set up.

Everything will work pretty much as it does now, the Pi's boot files will remain on the SD card and will appear under the "/boot" directory on the Pi. Raspi-config should work as well.

Re: Running pi on SSD...

You need to expand the Pi's boot software partition to fill the SSD. The easiest and safest way to do that is from another computer, or when booting from and SD card on the Pi, and use a partition editing tool such as [url=http://gparted.org/]GParted[/code].
