So you bought a Raspberry Pi and you don’t know what should you do with it. Well, in this series I want to share my way of using my Raspberry Pi. I bet you already guessed it right by reading the title. Yes, this is the first part of my Raspberry Pi Media Server series. Before I continue, here’s what I have for this project:
- A full set of 2GB Raspberry Pi 4 Model B
- ORICO 3.5 inch Dual Bay Aluminum Alloy USB3.0 Hard Drive Enclosure (9528U3)
- Two 1TB Hard Disk Drive
- A memory card reader
To let you visualize what you will have by following this series, here’s a glimpse of preview for you. You will have a media server that can download and stream media whether you are in your local network or outside. All of this are done simply with Docker containers and Traefik as the reverse proxy combined with optional BTRFS RAID 1 for redundancy.
