Configure Raspberry Pi Audio HDMI port and Audio Jack

Hi All,

Kindly refer my guide on installing Audio and Video Player here
Now you have Audio and Video Playback but the audio always comes from HDMI port and you want to have audio from Audio Jack as well.

Note: By default output will be automatic

Enter the following

Raspberry Pi to use the analog output:
sudo amixer cset numid=3 1

Change the value 1 with 0=auto, 1=headphones, 2=hdmi
To suit to your need.

I do not understand what auto exactly mean as with auto i always heard audio only from HDMI jack.

Audio and Video Playback on Raspberry Pi

Hi All,

Followed the following steps and i had media playback on Raspbian “wheezy”

$sudo apt-get update
$sudo apt-get install mplayer mplayer-gui alsa-base alsa-utils pulseaudio mpg123
$sudo reboot

Successfully managed to get some audio playback on command line
$mpg123 /pathtofile/audio.mp3

Modify the pi user to belong to the video group:
$sudo usermod -aG video pi
Logout and login for changes to take effect:

For Video Playback on Commandline
$mplayer /pathtofile/video.avi

We also now have Mplayer in Sound and Video Section in the GUI

WiFi on Rasspberry Pi with ASUS USB N10

Hi All,

I finally received my ASUS USB N10 Wifi Dongle and i first tested it on my Windows desktop if it was working fine ,

it worked great so i decided to give it a try with RPi.

Used OS : 2012-08-16-wheezy-raspbian [Since it already includes the ASUS Driver]


1. Hooked up the ASUS USB N10 Wifi Dongle to one of the ports on my RPi and rest of the keyboard and other peripherals to USB Hub and booted.

2. After i got the $ prompt

3. Entered lsusb
You should get following on one line.
Bus 001 Device 004: ID 0b05:1786 ASUSTek Computer, Inc. USB-N10 802.11n Network Adapter [Realtek RTL8188SU]

4. Entered lsmod

You should get following on one line.
r8712u 180848 0

5. Now time to Edit the interfaces file.

Traverse to the following path /etc/network and open “interfaces” file in an editor

5.1 Create a Backup of the interfaces file
sudo cp interface interfaces.backup
ls -l

On ls- l you should see the interfaces.backup file will be created.

5.2 Open in file in editor

sudo nano interfaces

5.3 Append the code to the interfaces file without the quotes for ssid and wpa-psk key

allow-hotplug wlan0
auto wlan0
iface wlan0 inet dhcp
wpa-ssid "your network ssid"
wpa-psk "network passwd"

5.4 Save it using Ctrl+X

6. Reboot your RPi.

7. Now the ASUS USB N10 should be connected to your Router with the specified credentials.

8. Goto your GUI using startx

9. Open any browser and start surfing 🙂

Check screenshot for details 🙂


Hope this helps enjoy Wireless connectivity on your RPi with ASUS USB N10.
