Raspberry Pi enthusiasts searching for a new project to keep them busy this weekend may be interested in a new revision published by Granpino via Hackster.io providing full instructions on how to build your very own Raspberry Pi MP3 player.
Not only will the RaspiPlayer play MP3 files but it also offers an Internet radio and playback over Bluetooth. The new revision includes album art and a new skin to the control panel offering easy access to everything you need for a self-contained music system. Granpino Has used a Raspberry Pi 2 Model B equipped with a 3.5 inch LCD HDMI display.
“Raspberry Pi internet radio player with MP3 over bluetooth. This is an update on the Raspberry Pi internet radio player posted on this site about a year ago. This time it includes Album Art which is downloaded from the internet. I decided to change the look by creating a new skin. The first revision is no longer available.”
“Download the full raspbian stretch image and burn to a 8GB or bigger SD card. To start you should be able to SSH to the Raspberry Pi and also use the remote connection VNC. After burning the image create an empty file called ssh in the boot folder of the SD card. Also create a file called wpa_supplicant.conf and include your WIFI credentials.”_
