Re: NEWBIE: FROM SW MIAMI, FL LOOKING FOR MENTOR.
- Apologies, but the links for http://linuxcommand.org/lc3_learning_the_shell.php in my previous post aren't working - hopefully this one does.
I've also made the assumption that most will be using a Debian-based RPi installation but other distributions also have their own forum/wikis, the Arch Linux wiki is particularly impressive, but please bear in mind that different distributions may do things slightly differently - e.g. different directories for different files.

- Good morning Paul and Greetings from Florida!
I tried the suggestions in those "Google Links" and read all the debate, which I suggest you also do. It does NOT work... All those millions of hits means mean that there are NEWBIES like me, from SW Miami trying to get to watch youtube videos on the Pi. Google has NOT been the Linux MENTOR that I have been looking for.
Are you watching and listening youtube videos on your pi? If you are, why don't you share with us how you are doing it?
Regards and 73

I took up the 'google it' challenge.
For 'sound on the Raspberry Pi' I got nearly 7 million hits, including (for example):
For 'playing youtube videos on raspberry pi' I got over 9 million hits, including:
(install whitey & youtube-dl, then run youtube-dl)
For 'software defined radio raspberry pi' I get over 100,000 pages, many using the RPi for wspr.
Hope this helps
