Hi all,

Could anyone offer any advise on how I download and install Falcon Player. I have attempted to down load FPP v3.5-BBB from gitHub however the zip says it is corrupted. Is it something to do with the source code? Can anyone please help.

Hey Brett,

I just downloaded it to check for you and it is opening fine for me. The file inside this zip file (file type Disk Image File) is not readable by Windows.

You need to use a disk imaging program to write it to your SD card (I use a program called Rufus).

Brett is partially sorted. Been in touch via sms.
I'm planning on doing a few videos of full FPP 3.5 installation on Pi and BBB tomorrow. Currently grabbing the images in order to do the upgrades.

Awesome, thank you. It is now a job for tomorrow as my brain if fried from a day of trying to download FPP about 50 times on 3 different computers and wondering why it wouldn’t work.... lol obviously I am ver new to this style of lights and am finding it very tough at present.

Cool... so I should plan on 3.6 for Monday so your videos are out of date immediately. :)

Just kidding. I will have 3.5.2 in the next day or so. Collecting a bunch of bug fixes.

OMG Dan. I just did a youtube video to show the burning process of 3.5. As there was no 3.5.1 image as such I went with the latest .zip image.

This was going to get appended onto end of previous video but didn't have a convenient video joiner on hand.
