I recently purchased a Raspberry Pi B+ and a Raspberry Pi 2. I am looking into interesting Pi projects, thus thought to document them and share in this post. I haven't tested these, but once I test, I will update them.
Useful projects links:
- RetroPie (https://retropie.org.uk/) allows you to turn your Raspberry Pi or PC into a retro-gaming machine.
- Magic Mirror, Mirrors designed around the world, GitHub repository.
- Photo Frame.
- Raspberry Pi NAS
- Raspberry Pi NAS with redundancy using rsync
- How to make a Raspberry Pi NAS Youtube video
- Raspberry Pi camera live streaming and recording web interface
- Configuring Plex in OSMC (fixing the issue with some configuration - forum topic)
Some of the useful pieces of information:The default pi user on Raspbian is a sudoer. This gives the ability to run commands as root when preceded by sudo, and to switch to the root user with

Compiling ffmpeg in Raspbian (with openssl):[pre class="brush:bash"]
sudo apt-get install openssh
sudo apt-get install libssl-dev
git clone https://git.ffmpeg.org/ffmpeg.git ffmpeg
./configure --prefix=/home/pi/arm --enable-openssl
# add the following to .bashrc file
sudo apt-get install network-manager-vpnc
sudo apt-get install openvpn network-manager-openvpn network-manager-openvpn-gnome
sudo /etc/init.d/networking restart
sudo openvpn --config ****.ovpn[/pre]
The above will ask the username and password each time when you login. You can avoid this by storing your username and password in a text file. Following instructions below,
#enter the username and password as shown below
#now find the line with "auth-user-pass" within the *.ovpn file and replace is with the following
