Last time I received several questions related to the Peppy player.
There is no FAQ chapter on the player's wiki pages yet.
So I'll try to answer them here.
Q: Is there any ISO file for the Peppy Player?
A: There is no ISO file but there is IMG file which is functionally
very similar to ISO files but works with flash cards. You just write
IMG file to your micro SD flash card, insert the card into your
Raspberry Pi and you are ready to go. All player's image files can be

Q: Is there any player EXE file which I could install and run?
A: Peppy Player is a Python application. It's distributed as a set of
Python scripts. Even though there is a way to make executable file
from Python scripts it's not a usual way of distributing Python
Q: There are several Disk Images which one I need to choose?
A: It depends.
If you are planning to control player from browser in
any mobile device then you need to install Headless disk image.
If you already have LCD/Touchscreen for which the disk image
is available then you need to install that disk image. If you are just
going to buy LCD/Touchscreen then you need to install the disk image
for the LCD which you are buying.
From my expirience HDMI LCD/Touchscreens have better performance over
SPI LCDs. There is only one disk image for the 5" HDMI Touchscreen
right now. I hope to add more in the future.
Q: Is it possible to add my own links to web radio stations?
A: Yes, the process was described on the following wiki page:
https://github.com/project-owner/Peppy. ... /Languages
in section 'Create web radio playlists'. If you create brand new radio group
you also have to provide two images 'folder.png' and 'folder-on.png'. They
will represent your radio group in the 'Genre' menu. Also make sure that
the station image filenames are the same as the radio station names which
you define in the stations.m3u file.
