Re: any recommendations for a USB microphone

I use a Logitech C310 webcam for my software.
I've heard a PS Eye works well too.

Re: Playing HTML 5/You Tube videos via Midori/Media Berry

You can run it in Midori (as long as userscripts are enabled)
Or you can run commands in the command line:
youtube http://URL
youtube-search some content

Re: Pianobar freezes without sudo

I'm not sure why, but my pianobar freezes on the beginning second song if I have pulseaudio installed.
I had to uninstall pulseaudio with sudo apt-get uninstall pulseaudio
Then it started working again.

Also, I have a script included called youtube-search that searches whatever you want, finds the youtube url and then streams it to youtube.

Re: Playing HTML 5/You Tube videos via Midori/Media Berry

Mine doesn't download the file it actually just gets the info from youtube-dl using the -g flag. It streams the video using omxplayer.
And sorry for the slowness. I was posted to lifehacker and hackaday today for some other stuff and its been blowing up my blog.

Re: Raspberry Pi Home Automation Ideas...

Re: Siri: Open my garage door..

I wrote something that uses Google's speech recognition instead of Siri and run's completely on the RPi. It can run any command based off anything you say and is easily configurable without having to code anything. You can find it here: http://stevenhickson.blogspot.com/2013/05/voice-command-v20-for...

Re: Questions: Process images - C270 HD - Store images - Dis

I use OpenCv for this.
It's written in C++ but has python wrappers for it. Either way, you are going to have to learn a programming language. I have a post on setting up a webcam with the Pi here:

Re: Send network command to play audio file

You are going to have to set up some sort of server side system that runs this command.
You could do this with a php script on a webpage. Or you could do it through SSH. You could even send an SMS to yourself to do it. Either way, some sort of server side system has to be set up to run the command.

Re: Playing HTML 5/You Tube videos via Midori/Media Berry

Unfortunately, you were misinformed. You can't do this in conventional ways through Midori on the Pi. HTML5 is too slow on the Pi to play videos at more than 1 fps. The same can be said with gnash. However, I did find a way to play 1080p quality videos from youtube using a little hack. You can see i...

Re: voice recognition based home autometion

An arduino alone isn't capable of doing this. If just using the Pi, You can write programs that use the GPIOs to do something like turn the lights on or off (these are already pretty widely available). So now you have a program called lightson.sh and lightsoff.sh or something similar. Then you can u...

The file is actually called .commands.conf and should be located in your home directory. The newest version from github adds this file if you don't have it, but you can just create it yourself. So you can create the file yourself or you can go through and reinstall voicecommand in order to get the n...

Re: can't build hello_pi examples in Raspbian

Their is a script in the folder above called rebuild.sh (Probably with sudo)

You should just run that. It will build the required libs for you.

Don't move things around or worry about all of this other stuff.
