Hosting Music Bots on a Raspberry Pi

It's been brought to my attention that there's a typo, at 7:13 I say windows-built-tools, it should read;

npm i -g windows-build-tools OR npm i -g ffmpeg-binaries

In the last episode, I showed you how to get a bot up and running on a raspberry pi, in this episode I show you how to get a music bot up and running on the same raspberry pi, and I go over why you shouldn't host a music bot on the raspberry pi.

Just because you CAN do it, doesn't mean you SHOULD.

I'm using a Raspberry Pi 2 Model B running in headless mode with a WiFi dongle, on Raspbian 8 (Jessie)

Commands used in the video;

npm install - This will install the bot from the package.json file.

sudo apt-get install libav-tools -y - This will install an FFMPEG compatible transcoder.

pm2 start app.js --name Music - This will add the music bot to PM2's list, and starts it up.

pm2 list - This will list all currently stored items.

pm2 monit This will pull up a live monitor so you can watch the resources.
