Building a DIY Yodeck Player using Raspberry Pi

You can easily build your own Yodeck Player using your own Raspberry Pi.

(Please note that if you do not already have a Raspberry Pi, we recommend getting an annual subscription and a free Yodeck Playbox along with it.)

Using the Yodeck Playbox Image (recommended)

  1. Get a Raspberry Pi. Yodeck will work with all versions of RPi, but we recommend using the newest Raspberry Pi 3, Model B.
  2. Get any required accessories for the Raspberry Pi, like a case, a power supply (at least 1A), an HDMI cable, a microSD card (Class 10 recommended) of at least 8GB capacity, etc. If you are not using Raspberry Pi 3 and want WiFi, then you need a compatible WiFi dongle also.
  3. Download the zipped Yodeck Playbox Image, which is compatible with all version of the Raspberry Pi.
  4. Unzip and write the image file to the SD card.
  5. Put the SD card into the Raspberry Pi and boot. Hopefully, it will boot and you will see stuff on screen.
  6. Within 5-10 minutes, you should see a message with a Registration Code, urging you to register your monitor in Yodeck.com. Go to Yodeck.com and punch in the Registration Code. That simple.
