Raspberry Pi4 install on Raspberry OS
Hi, is it possible you could provide an installation procedure for the raspberry pi4 with raspberry OS and ARMv8 architecture? There is a version available on snap but it didn't work correctly. I am a beginner with Linux so any help would be appreciated.
This music player is great, the perfect alternative to Windows media player for organising my music collection, if I can get it working on the Pi that will be all my various computers running it. Thanks!

It depends on what Linux distribution you run on it.
You might need to compile yourself from source unless strawberry is available for arm in their repository.
But it's pretty easy as long as you know what dependencies are required so you have the required development packages installed before you start.
Instructions are here:
Most of the other Debian based distros should work with either the debian or ubuntu guide.
@jonas thank you, I'll have a go over the weekend and see if I can get it running.
Two comments. First, almost anything is a better alternative to Windows Media Player. Ugh.
Second, Raspberry Pi doesn't have many options for good music players unless you use some kind of specialized OS designed just for media. I know this because I just spent several days trying everything in the repo. In the end, I landed on installing Exaile from source. I'll be curious to hear how difficult it is to compile Strawberry from source on an RPi.
I have Strawberry up and running on the Pi4 and it is lightening fast, much quicker than both my Ubuntu and Widows 10 versions and they are all working from the same library. Thank you jonas for pointing me to the compiling on debian, it worked perfect first time!
bfris. Assuming you are running raspberry OS, Follow the instructions in
jonas, posted it above. Make sure all the dependancies are installed first. I was completely blown away by how fast it is!!!!
Thanks @ash-pi. I can confirm that the "Compiling-on-Debian" instructions work very well on Raspberry Pi 4. It took a while to scan my library over wifi, but everything seems to work nicely.
I recently started using Strawberry on my RP 4. I'm running Manjaro ARM on it and Strawberry is in the software repository. It is running well right out of the box.
I can confirm that the Debian instructions also work to compile from source on a Pi 4 running the aarch64 beta of Raspberry Pi OS.
