Re: Google Play Music Works on Raspbian Chromium.

My Rory Gallagher's discography is not uploading from my pi... Blame on you Google Music. I find that uploading music even on a regular pc takes up a lot of CPU power. So I wouldn't recommend uploading music using a Pi. It would cause the Pi probably to freeze up due to the ram limitation. I find t...

Hi all as a update on how things are going with this cool password setup for sudo. The only way for raspi config GUI to work is to go into command line and type: sudo rc_gui If you open raspi config gui any other way it will open but the settings are not editable because it's not opened as sudo.

Google Play Music Works on Raspbian Chromium.

This is probably common knowledge. Google play music works on Raspbian Chromium. Just log into your account and stream. The website has full html5 support in Chromium. Plus you can download and upload your music (not recommends as it's slow). Try it out in Chromium here: https://play.google.com/musi...

IMO if your RPi is behind the firewall on your router then changing the password is enough. Even that is mostly to prevent physical access. That's great to know.

Re: Kweb Suite (Minimal Kiosk Browser, omxplayerGUI)

The recommendation has always been to set it to 128 MB for full HD video support. I use a bit more for two reasons: I do a lot of transcoding using the GPU and I sometimes run kodi (which requires at least 160 MB GPU memory, if you want to play full HD video). I found that 80mb GPU Ram works really...

If you are not using Kodi it is unlikely you'll need more than 80M. Thanks I set it to 80M. I use Kweb and Chromium Hardware Acceleration with OMXPlayerGui when needed. Your advice has been helpful. I'm really trying to find a good optimal and lean Ram setting and your suggestion of 80 has been ver...

Re: Pi3 internet browsing and Youtube performance

Increasing GPU memory (e.g. through raspi-config) does help fullscreen video decode in Chromium a little. 80M should be enough. I have my GPU RAM set to 128mb is that too much then? OR Should I reduce to 80MB to allow the rest of the PC more room to run? I've read around that 64mb is too low for mo...
