I'd like to produce a media player device on the basis of the RPi architecture and would like to get some recommended reading. The device will need to be internet connected and capable of playing Full HD, which is why I think the RPi would be a great way to start out.
I have some experience with Unix and a range of programming languages and tend to pick things up quite quickly.
Does anybody have recommended reading on this subject? If I need to elaborate please let me know.
