I fallowed these instructions
Installing the Falcon Player (FPP) on your Raspberry Pi
The latest FPP release for the Raspberry Pi is FPP v1.5 and is available for download at the following location:
FPP v1.5 Release Pi SD image: https://github.com/FalconChristmas/fpp/releases/download/1.5/FPP-v1.5-Pi.zip
The Falcon Player is designed to be treated like a software appliance. To make FPP installation easier on the Raspberry Pi, the player is distributed in a ZIP file which contains the Pi NOOBs installer. This installer will install the Raspbian Linux Operating System and the FPP software onto the SD card. You will need to copy the contents of the FPP .zip file onto a SD card and boot the Pi using the SD card. Upon boot, the NOOBs installer will take over and install Raspbian and the Falcon Player.
These instructions will guide you through installing the NOOBs image on your SD card that will allow you to easily install the OS and FPP as well as recover your card if the OS becomes corrupted.
- Insert an SD card that is 8GB or greater in size into your computer.
- Format the SD card so that the Pi can read it
- Download the SD Association's Formatting Tool1 from https://www.sdcard.org/downloads/formatter_4/eula_windows/
- Install and run the Formatting Tool on your machine. We recommend using the SD Card Association utility because the built-in Windows format utility will only format the first partition that Windows recognizes which will not properly re-format some USB drives or drives that have previously been used with the NOOBs installer.
- Set "FORMAT SIZE ADJUSTMENT" option to "ON" in the "Options" menu
- Check that the SD card you inserted matches the one selected by the Tool
- Click the "Format" button
- Do the same for the USB stick its recommended that the stick be called "media"
- Download the latest release of the Falcon Player image for the Pi from the link at the top of this post.
- Extract the contents of the downloaded FPP .zip file onto the formatted SD card. The 'OS' and 'default' subdirectories should be visible in the top level directory on the SD card.
- Insert a USB flash drive into the Pi. This will be used for sequences, media, FPP configuration, and logs once FPP is running.
- Insert the SD card into your Pi and connect the power supply to boot the Pi and install FPP. Your Pi will now boot into NOOBS and will automatically start installing the FPP image onto your SD card.
- Once the install is complete, the Pi will automatically reboot into Linux, and start FPP. All further interaction with FPP will be via the web UI accessible via http://fpp/
