Q-Play on a Raspberry PI (Linux software) is a really good basic player, that can easily show pictures and other simple content.
Raspberry PI is a small and price friendly unit with limited knowledge. This you should consider before choosing Raspberry PI.
A Raspberry PI is not made for bigger video content. Do you wish to settle for bigger videos, we will recommend that you use a hardware, that dimensioned for the wished setup.
Down below is our recommend Raspberry PI setup, to obtain the best settlement of Q-Play.
- Raspberry PI 3 model B+
- FLIRC Raspberry PI 3 case with. passive cooling
- SanDisk Ultra Micro/SDHC A1/U1 98MB/s - 16GB
The cooling should be dimensioned after the environment where is it installed.
Continuing playback of video can cause a high load, therefore we recommended an ekstra cooling.
Do you wish to primarily have video on your Q-Play, we will recommended our standard HDMI player.
