Can't get enough of those sweet lofi hip hop radio beats, but don't want to keep a browser tab open for it? In this guide, you'll set up a Raspberry Pi 4 in Kiosk mode so that it will automatically play any YouTube music stream when it starts, using the high quality digital I2S stereo outputs of the BrainCraft HAT, and showing a suitably low-fi 240x240 version of the video.

We'll use the BrainCraft HAT which has both video display and digital stereo speaker + stereo headphone output for an all-in-one standalone YouTube appliance kit. Plug speakers directly in, or you can use the line/headphone out to connect to an audio system or headphones

For more information about the BrainCraft HAT, head to its dedicated guide. However, don't actually do the setup steps until this guide instructs you to do so.
