Raspberry Pi Wifi radio #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi

Wifi radio with a Raspberry Pi.

Raspberry Pi set up as a Wifi internet radio. SSH into to set up your playlist. Streams play on MPC and MPD so you have command line access. Im using the Adafruit Raspberry Cobbler to have access to buttons from the python program that just manages the playlist.

Hit up or down on the buttons and the player moves on to the next item in the playlist. You fill the Rpi up with streams that you like and save them and thats it, personalized internet radio player for $44.

The full write-up including links to all the important information (where to buy the Wifi, setup, Adafruit instructions, etc) are here on my blog.

  1. I have something similar running on my Pi, using the MPoD iPhone app as the remote control. Works pretty good but the analog sound out is noisy, loud pops on streaming radio changes.

    Pianobar, the great CLI for Pandora is available by just doing:
    sudo apt-get install pianobar (for many distro’s).

    For other ideas, reference http://www.mightyohm.com for Jeff Keyzer’s seminal WiFi Radio project, excellent source.
