Hi guys. I wanted to link my video tutorial that I have recently uploaded to help those who are trying to install Raspbmc on to their SD card to run the XBMC program on a Raspberry Pi. It can be a little confusing so I made an easy to follow video.
If you are confused by what the heck I just said in the paragraph above don’t worry I will break it down. The raspberry pi is a micro computer that many are using as a mini home theater PC. The Raspberry Pi runs Linux, or other variants of operating systems. Two that are popular (because they run the the XBMC interface) are RaspBMC made by a guy named Nazarko and Raspbian made by some other guy (forgive me I don’t know the developer). I have only installed RaspBMC.
The RaspBMC operating system needs to be installed over the web with a live internet connection. The SD card must first be prepped so when you first plug in your Raspberry device it will know what to do. Think of the card as self booting and self installing. Once you follow my video and install the RaspBMC software then you install the SD card into the Raspberry device, plug it in and it takes it from there and finishes the software install. Believe me, its a lot easier than it sounds.
