Videos by Alan Dahl
Beginners Guide Part 1
This is the first part in the beginners guide to the Falcon Pi Player. In this video we show the hardware kit, and peripheral devices needed to build a Falcon Pi Player. We also show the physical assembly of the Raspberry Pi in it's custom case.
Beginners Guide Part 2
This is the second part in the beginners guide to the Falcon Pi Player. This Video covers the required software downloads.
Beginners Guide Part 3
In this video we use a Windows computer to prepare our SD Card and USB stick for use in the Falcon Pi Player.
Beginners Guide Part 4
In this video we use a Macintosh computer to prepare our SD Card and USB stick for use in the Falcon Pi Player.
The procedure in part 3 and 4 only needs to be performed in one location. I am showing both a windows version and a Macintosh version but you only need to use the one appropriate to your environment.
Beginners Guide Part 5
This is the fifth and final part in the beginners guide to the Falcon Pi Player. In this video we will boot and configure the Falcon Pi Player, and output to lights. This is the majority of the tutorial.
Notes and Corrections:
Corrections: At the 7:30 Mark I say I am going to shutdown the Pi, however, I never show how it is shutdown. There is a shutdown button at the bottom of the Status/Control page. You should always shut the pi down using this button prior to removing power. At the 8:43 mark you'll notice the Pi is in the shutdown state with only the red power light active. This is because I did run the shutdown command, I just failed to show it.
