You have a ton of options for accessing your computer’s music library from your stereo, but most require a bit of technical know-how to actually use. You can build a jukebox with a Raspberry Pi, a tiny micro-computer, that anyone can use, even if they don’t know what a Raspberry Pi is.
When you’re done with this project, you’ll have a tiny, touch screen jukebox in your living room that can play, control, and pick songs from your music library on another PC , then play them on your stereo. The interface here is easy to understand, so it’s great for parties or a house where a few non-geeks might want to get in on the playlist without learning a complicated system, your computer, a Wi-Fi password, or anything else. Better still, it all works on its own network, so no need to worry about pairing devices or any of that. To finish this project, you’ll need a little knowledge of the command line, but that’s it.
