I started to play with Raspberry when I won a contest in my company and the prize was a Raspberry. Then the question was: what I can do with it? Well, I immediately thought a media center could be a good idea. I started to read everything about the argument but all websites about Kodi was full of “Best Plugins for this”, “Best plugins for that”. There are good websites out there but I needed info on real use cases and the scenarios I could run on my Raspberry.
First problem was: what components to buy? Which enclosure I can use? What scenario make more sense for an italian like me? For over an year I accumulate experience and a took notes on an unknown blog in private mode. Most of knowledge was acquired thanks to this forum.
Now it’s time to give back.
I wrote this articles to share with others my experience in the hope to learn even more on “Real use cases” and “How to do amazing things” with Kodi.
I didn’t write articles for lot of scenarios I have already implemented like: music, my personal dropbox, my photo management, my pvr, sharing media on a second screen with Chromecast and so on. But so far I wrote several articles that I want to share now with you. I’ll add others tutorials in the future.
How to build a Raspberry Media Center:
How to Configure Kodi Media Center
How to transform your Kodi Box in a Netflix-like platform
How to turn your Kodi Media Center in a Torrent machine
How to install Youtube on Kodi
How to transform your Raspberry Kodi Media Center in a Retro Game Platform
How to play Nintendo DS games on Kodi Media Center
How to transform your Raspberry Media Center in a NAS
Most of the information reported in these articles are available on the web but it’s not easy to find them. Most info is also available in this forum where I learned a lot of things.
I do not want to advertise my blog (it is even not well managed). I only hope to have feedback and improve what I have done so far because here there are a lot of people more expert than me.
As soon as possible I’ll report how I manage my photo, music, my personal dropbox and other stuff.
