Alright, this project went from idea to complete(ish) in record time, mostly I'm happy to complete something.
The process went along something like this:
Fire up the required software:
Follow the instructions of the creators of the various software instead of ours.. the mopidy documentation is great!
After following these steps you should be up and running and able to test
Hook everything up and test it:
Everything here is rather straight forward, but we'll cover the pitfalls we encounted
Fire it up and finalize software setup:
you should be able to reach the raspberry on whatever IP and port you've set it up to, and if you had set up mopidy as a service its already running, play around just ensure to crank down the volume if you have some petite and sensitive speakers like we have, I have a bit more tinnitus than before starting this project due to the volume being at max.
we set up the raspberry to launch chromium and open the simple-web-client page in kiosk mode, we also tweaked the css for the client a bit so that it is white on black instead of black on white.
