In Detail

Every new embedded board that comes into existence gives us the power to access highly technological objects that can be shaped according to our desires and ideas. BeagleBone is one such low power, open source, single-board computer with all the functionality of a basic computer.

This book begins with a quick installation of MediaDrop, a versatile media content manager, showing you how to manage your music, video, and podcasts. You will learn how to configure access permissions for your users and select the way you would want them to retrieve your shared media. Next, you'll get to grips with how to use existing ready-to-use modules or video devices in your own projects. As you continue your journey, you will learn how to build your personal media player. Toward the end of the book, you will create an interesting project using BeagleBone, that is, an 8 x 8 LED matrix that will groove to your music.

By the end of the book, you will be armed with all the knowledge required to interface and configure all media center components using BeagleBone.
