Vim4 Portable Media Player - Khosmic (Khadas open source media computer)

Which system do you use? Android, Ubuntu, OOWOW or others?


Which version of system do you use? Khadas official images, self built images, or others?


Please describe your issue below:

Just showing my build.

This is Project Khosmic.

An open source media computer. I designed it to be an updated portable media player but in the process overbuilt it into a portable linux computer. It uses bluetooth to transmit the audio to either headphones, speakers, or your vehicle’s audio system using audio codec.

It can be connected to a full size display with a full size hdmi and use the folding bluetooth keyboard to do almost any on-the-go linux computer needs.

Syncthing syncs my whole personal music library to the device when it is on my home network. When any new media is added to the server it is automatically added the next time that the device is powered on and connected to my home wifi.
