They will guide you through the process to set up a cheap Kodi powered media center, a headless low powered music player and much more.

As we always like to mention, this is just the start the of all the media projects we plan to do. If you want to stay up to date on all the latest projects, then be sure to follow us on social or sign up to the mailing list.

One thing you should be aware of when doing media projects for the Pi is the performance. Transcoding of high-quality video is very performance taxing, so you may find video streaming from the Pi may not be the best experience. If this is important to you, then you might be better off looking at a more powerful device.

As I mentioned above, if you’re looking for a fully-fledged Raspberry Pi media center then something like Kodi or OSMC is your best bet. Just keep in mind it may not perform the greatest as these software packages can get very performance heavy.

If you have any suggestions on media projects to cover then be sure to let me know either by emailing me or leaving a comment on a related project that I already have published.

I  do hope that these Raspberry Pi media projects work out for you and that you don’t run into any issues. As I mention in all the tutorials if you do run into issues then be sure to leave a comment so I can consider fixing the problem or help you troubleshoot.
