Your own multimedia centre with Raspberry Pi Zero
To create it you need several elements, both the Raspberry Pi Zero card as well as additional accessories and of course software. You must have a mains cable with an output voltage of 5 V at 2 A (2000 mA). The Raspberry Pi Zero hardware itself does not need much power, but in this case, you have to take into account the peripherals that you connect to it. A power supply with less power will reach its limits much faster. When using KODI software, you need to equip yourself with a high-speed SD card. This is important for the smooth running of the software. If you also want the Raspberry Pi Zero to work longer and more safely, it is essential that you opt for a cooling system.
KODI allows you to manage, play and organize your files, i.e. music, photos, videos and series. And you have everything in one place. After installing the program, you should import the selected files into it. It is important that KODI automatically accesses the connected hard drive. This means that without any additional action, you will be shown photos and videos and music will be played. You can add files to KODI, organize them in a convenient and best for you way to easily find what you are currently interested in.
Raspberry Pi Zero proves that it is not the size that matters most
Raspberry Pi Zero surprises with its small size. It also has a large reserve of power. The small Raspberry has an amazing CPU: Broadcom BCM2835, 1GHz (ARM11) and 512 RAM DDR2. Comparing its CPU speed to B and B+ versions, it is 40% higher. That's why you can use Raspberry Pi Zeros to create your private entertainment centre. It works great with the KODI media player. Raspberry Pi Zero has one micro USB port, but that doesn't prevent you from expanding its capabilities. If necessary, use a micro USB to USB adapter. It will allow you to connect more peripheral devices.
Raspberry Pi Zero is half the size of the A+ model. Since its size has been reduced so much, some compromises must be accepted. It doesn't have a network card and LCD connectors. However, this is not a problem, as we offer an effective solution to use the Raspberry Pi Zero to its full potential.
We offer a wide range of video and audio cables for the Raspberry Pi Zero with different lengths and connectors and with support for the best resolutions. We also recommend practical adapters. We haven't forgotten about visual aspects. The cables are available in different colours to match the appearance of your Raspberry Pi Zero.
