Raspberry Pi Media Server: a Wifi routing Hotspot, Music server and client


With the advent of the excellent Raspbian Pi platform it's now possible to run proper Linux programs like never before and that includes SeeDeclip4, giving you a multi-user wifi music server for the whole house, campervan, pub, club etc.


  • These Hotspot instructions relate only to the Pi 3B+ and Pi4 running on Stretch and Buster (Debian 9 and 10).
  • The new Pi4 is much faster but the 'Buster' Linux Raspbian isn't quite the same yet in small but vital areas.
  • The actual Seedeclip4 software will run on both without issue.

The Raspberry Pi running Raspbian Lite can be setup to run in the following ways:

Music server on a wired ethernet

  1. Install SeeDeClip4
  2. Add your music files

Music server on a portable wireless hotspot (optional wired ethernet)

  1. Setup the Pi3B+ or Pi4 as a WiFi hotspot with optional internet routing via ethernet
    There are many instructions about a dumb hotspot or a Wifi access point (bridge) but look here to find out how to have your own private, standalone Wifi hotspot that you can add internet access to simply by plugging in the ethernet.
    I.e. this is a wireless hotspot router, so you can surf the net while listening to music from your SeeDeClip4 server. Then you can unplug it and take it with you the car or campervan and use it as a hotspot music server there too.
  2. Install SeeDeClip4
  3. Add your music files
