Learn how to create your own custom media server with a Raspberry Pi and OSMC, an open-source media center "built for the people, by the people."
- Welcome to Build A Raspberry Pi Media Center, I'm Brad Wheeler. When you get a a Raspberry Pi for the first time, it's easy to be impressed by the possibilities of your new tiny computer. An entire of world of custom computing seems to be at your fingertips. Then, you realize how big that world is, and how hard it is to get started with any one project, even with all the documentation and guides. Despite 15 years of experience in information technology and engineering, I was in exactly the same boat when I got my first Raspberry Pi, and that's why I designed this course. In the following videos, you'll start with a fresh, out of the box, Raspberry Pi, and end up with a functional media center you can use every day.
We'll start by installing and setting up the Open Source Media Center operating system on your Raspberry Pi, once it's installed, learn how to configure OSMC to work with your TV and audio setup, as well as all the settings you'll need to customize your media center. Finally, I'll walk you through the media center's common uses, playing media content, streaming media from your other devices, and even streaming to your other devices. With that, let's begin.
Note: These instructions work with the Raspberry Pi 1, 2, and 3 models. OSMC does not support Netflix, Hulu, or HBO Go.
- Installing and configuring OSMC
- Backing up OSMC settings
- Playing local content
- Streaming remote and third-party content
- Controlling OSMC
- Using an IR remote
