I have a lot of FLAC music, and I can’t either play it on usual mp3 player, or cary as much as I want on it, so I had this idea that maybe with a Raspberry PI and some tweaking I could make that. After little googling I found about Volumio, wich from what I understand is an OS for Raspberry PI made to deal with music !
Though it’s quite hard to understand for new-age internet user without theses modern smart and punchy explicative videos every startup make nowadays,
I think I got quite a good idea from reading forum(still working !), but I’m still not sure about some tchnical issues,
ils it possible to make with Volumio and a RaspberryPI, a mobile player (working with USB 5v or cellphone charger) on wich I can plug a normal external USB hard drive containing FLAC songs in folders, and browse it’s content with buttons and a LCD screen, with High Quality sound output of course.
I have that simple idea in my mind, but I’m guessing there is multiple details, like what part of the process is handled by Volumio and wich is not, maybe there is a limitation of processor calculation capacity with high quality sound playing and LCD B/W display, details like that, I don’t know.
And if I got it right, can I simply buy a raspberry and the buttons & LCD screen and start coding ? I have little money and I d’ont want to waste it
