Media Player Projects

With its HDMI socket and small form factor, the Raspberry Pi can quickly become a much more versatile media player than the ones you’d buy in the shops. This month, we’ve got a range of sound and vision projects that can put your Raspberry Pi at the heart of your entertainment. With it you can stream movies, play television shows, and listen to music tracks and radio. It’s a great introduction to digital making with a Raspberry Pi.

Turn eight Raspberry Pi computers into an OctaPi- the cluster computer designed by spymasters at GCHQ.
