Thank you for using piCorePlayer HELP!
Note: This is an early version of HELP! and we expect it to evolve over time.
piCorePlayer is built on a very small linux distro which is only about 12 MB,
known as Tiny Core Linux ↗.
A special thanks to bmarkus from the Tiny Core Linux forum ↗
for help building the piCore (a special version for the Raspberry Pi) and support.
It boots very fast (often within 15 sec), and it is running entirely in RAM, therefore,
you can simply pull the power without any risk of corruption of your SD card.
In addition, piCorePlayer is using the fine Squeezelite player developed by Triode, which can be
found here ↗. Thanks to Ralphy for building
a version of Squeezelite with wma and alac support and for providing the jivelite and Shairport packages. The patches applied
to the kernel to improve DAC support and higher sample rates were developed by Clive Messer.
Logitech Media Server (LMS) can be run on piCorePlayer from version 3.01 onwards. Thanks to Paul_123 and jgrulich from
the piCore forum for building the LMS.tcz package.
To use piCorePlayer you will need a Raspberry Pi computer. Read more about this
small credit sized computer ↗.
Raspberry Pi is a trademark of the Raspberry Pi Foundation.
The web-GUI is powered by the small built-in Busybox webserver
