Pi MusicBox creates a Raspberry Pi and Spotify mashup that we love

Raspberry Pi + Spotify = Pi MusicBox

| Science, Space & Robotics News | Posted: Mar 25, 2013 6:30 pm

Spotify is one of the most popular music streaming services available, and Raspberry Pi is one of the hottest devices on the market right now. It only seems natural that they find each other and mesh into a form of music streaming goodness.

Pi MusicBox is a bootable Debian image designed to work with the Raspberry Pi and implements Modipy, which is a music streaming server. One of the awesome features of Modipy is its ability to stream music straight from Spotify as well as playback from local storage. It can be remote controlled from any Music Player Daemon (MPD) or web browser.

 

There are MPD apps for virtually every OS you can think of including Android, iOS, Windows, Mac and Linux. Pi MusicBox would make the perfect wireless music streaming device for those who do not want to shell out the funds for something like a Sonos or Wi-Fi enabled stereo.

 

Have you created something awesome using a Raspberry Pi? Send me some info on your project to my official TweakTown email, or post a link in the comments, and you may see your project showcased here on TweakTown.
