Re: Tabletop RPGs and the Raspberry Pi.

Their website states that it runs on HTML 5 (firefox or chrome recommended) and that for video chat it needs flash. I guess there are a couple of browsers that should work but you're not going to get the video.

If you are planning on getting rid of the old Windows XP PC why not try installing one of the Linux distributions aimed at older PCs and see if that gives it a new lease of life ? http://www.ibtimes.co.uk/windows-xp-alternatives-six-linux-distros-replace-microsofts-ageing-os-1443887 and a few more h...

Re: What would you do with a Compute Module?

That is, make a board for the CM which has several switchable card slots, one usable at any one time. I would guess some developer out there could design a board to do this and get a batch made up, if it's worth their while. (I personally don't change cards at all but some people probably do.) Yep,...

Re: What would you do with a Compute Module?

Just posted the following into another thread and thought it should really have gone here.

What could be really useful if there was an option to have say 3 micro SD slots, which you could switch between as the boot sd. That way you could have 3 operating systems that you could easily swap between.

Re: New features for raspistill command

Is there a facility that allows a time lapse video to be created by specifying how often a frame is taken and then a video is automatically created that you can specify how many frames per second that the resultant video plays back at?

Apologies if this has already been discussed.

Re: Extremely Simple Media Player wanted

If its to be used only as a media player, install something like OpenELEC as the full OS, then it will just boot straight into it. Maybe give additional functionality with Add-ons.

Re: XBMC YouTube addon is "broken", work for anyone else?

I can confirm that youtube is working fine for me on OpenELEC. This was from a fresh install this week, using noobs and installing OpenELEC through that. Afterwards in the settings I did an upgrade of OpenELEC to the latest version. I only tried a few vids but worked very well.

Re: HDMI cable difference

Don't know if this is the same for everyone else, but before I get a display to appear on my TV's screen I have to ensure the TV is on and displaying the correct HDMI input "before" I power up the RPi. If the RPi is already running before I move my TV to the correct input I don't get a picture.
