Media server

Mon Sep 24, 2012 10:36 pm

Hello,

Is it possible to attach a large hard drive 100+GB to the RPI and put a wireless signal on so you can stream a media server via wireless from the hard drive? Is it powerful enough/capable?

Thanks

Short answer? Yes.

Long answer? Kinda.
Totally depends on what you actually want to stream and how. Transcoding won't work. But just pushing out video/audio to a different device is not that hard. The only difficulty will be speed. But as long as you don't connect a lot of clients it should be fine.
