From playing around with my Pi Zero, I found its possible to play SD … From playing around with my Pi Zero, I found its possible to play SD video in MP4 format fullscreen providing you use the omxplayer app that utilises the built-in GPU core. VLC will play mp3 but wont play mp4s as in VLC everything is done in software (not GPU). As a basic media playback device the Pi Zero would probably be fine. Haven't tried streaming yet.The limited RAM can be a pain if you are doing internet stuff, so if you plan to use it as a general purpose machine I would go with the Raspberry Pi B2 as the increased RAM and Quad cores handle the web better. Sadly the lack of flash support prevents a lot of the media-rich sites like iplayer this affects all variants because there us no ARM support for Flash.



I believe video on Kodi is smooth enough - have a look at the YouTube videos showing the Pi Zero playing back HD videos stutter-free:

i really don't need one either, but for me, i think it's more the novelty of getting a free computer on a magazine more than the hype.

although the hype is probably playing a significant role, to be fair

well in the course of doing what i had to do today, i went in to two asdas, a wh-smiths, a tesco and a morrisons and didn't see a sign of any of them anywhere so i really am out now. i'll probably wait until the 10th to see if this second print run actually happens, otherwise i'll leave it.

That's exactly what the deal should have read: 'Mathematica' is 'free for RasPis' with a price of zero!
and 'get deal' should point at

The title is misleading, the software is free! That's what the post is … The title is misleading, the software is free! That's what the post is about, why is there a price?That's the price of a pi. And the link is wrong, why is it the link to buying a pi?Surely you don't need to buy a pi from rs in order to get the software?

You don't need to purchase a new Pi any existing users with at least 600MB of free space on their SD card can install Mathmatica today by typing:

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install wolfram-engine

You’ll find Mathematica in the app launcher under the Education menu.

Thanks OP, title could do with a tidy up, anyway this is hot. I didn't know about this, it's useless to me judging by the content, however I can mention it to others

If they had added it people would moan about paying for a feature they never use. If its too expensive or you won't use it, don't buy it.

Really bad, copyrighting nonsense is so annoying

In this case, to keep costs down, the Raspberry Pi foundation included … In this case, to keep costs down, the Raspberry Pi foundation included MPEG4 hardware decoding for free (because I believe this doesn't require a license oddly enough) and left MPEG2 out because this does require a license which would have bumped the cost of the Pi up.



It was to keep costs down yes as an mpeg2 license costs $2 per unit, almost 10% of the Pi's price point which is why the foundation decided to not include it by default. mpeg4 / h264 does need licensing and I believe it cost about $0.20 per device for h264 which is why that is included.

Some guys were making good progress with decoding SD mpeg2 on the Pi natively at good frame rates before this was released. I guess that effort will probably stop now.

waste of time, not a deal. cold!

RasPi arrived last week - setup raspbmc and is running nicely with android controller. With delivery it was £29
Edited by: "dsided" 28th Jul 2012

As a media player it's playing all I throw at raspbmc... however it will be useless as it stands as a media player unless you have a decent av amp to decode your hd audio because the pi won't do at present. This kind of kills it's use as a media player.

I modified my Atari 520 ST to have twin floppy drives. A pair of slimline drives could just about fit into the same space. I also soldered a blitter chip into it (with no noticeable difference in performance!).

ewwaxo

oh no


ah those were the days when i had a sinclair spectrum, zx81, commodore 64, commodore amiga and atari st - oh and an atari st and loads of nintendo game and watches

I've just received mine today, but with work commitments looks like I won't be able to enjoy it for a good month or so
