Raspberry PI - Stream from torrents easily with a web remote.
Based on nilakshdas/flixtor
Install from Scratch
It is recommended that you use a large SD card, 8 GB should be enough.
On first boot, please make sure to Expand Filesystem (click here if you missed doing it on first boot)
Login to your Pi for the first time (user: pi / pass: raspberry)
sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get upgrade wget http://node-arm.herokuapp.com/node_latest_armhf.deb sudo dpkg -i node_latest_armhf.deb
Install Torrent Pi
git clone --recursive https://github.com/jaruba/torrent-pi.git cd torrent-pi sudo npm install
installing might take longer then you expect
Setup auto-login for your RPi
sudo nano /etc/inittab
change this line:
1:2345:respawn:/sbin/getty 115200 tty1
to this line:
1:2345:respawn:/bin/login -f pi tty1 </dev/tty1> /dev/tty1 2>&1
Setup Torrent Pi to run on start-up
Note: Torrent Pi does not require the Desktop GUI, this guide explains how to run it from the main terminal directly.
sudo nano /etc/profile
add this line to the end of the file:
sudo nano /home/pi/torrentPi.sh
sudo node /home/pi/torrent-pi/app.js
If you did not install
torrent-pi in the default directory of your pi, make sure to change the path to the
app.js file from your install path.
If this does not work, then it is most probably because of namespace collision and you should replace
