Make your very own touchscreen-controller Pi Radio Player! With an ever increasing number of internet radio stations available this project combines the versatility of the Raspberry Pi and the PiTFT 2.8" touchscreen TFTdisplay. A custom display interface lets you control volume, station, and see what's currently playing.

This project is a good one for people who have a little bit of Raspberry Pi experience since there's quite a few steps, but its worth it!

Project steps

  1. Build the PiTFT 320x240 2.8" touchscreen display (this may not be necessary if your PiTFT is pre-assembled)

  2. Calibrate the touchscreen display

  3. Install Music Player Daemon (MPD) and Music Player Client (MPC) on the Raspberry Pi

  4. Find and add internet radio stations to mpc

  5. Download radioplayer source code

  6. Enjoy streaming internet radio on your desk
All the setup and calibration steps for the PiTFT display must be completed.
