This page is about running the Openmokast application on the FreeRunner. Some video tutorials are included for two different use cases: playing a recorded ETI file or playing a live DAB stream from an hardware USB receiver.
Playing a recorded DAB ETI file
A recorded ETI stream is the easiest way to tryout the Openmokast software. The FreeRunner has a built-in microSD card reader that can be used to store the ETI files. If no ETI files are available, you can use the mmbTools online encoding applications to generated DAB streams from content provided by the user.
After the SD card containing the ETI files has been inserted into the device, the software can be used as explained in the following video:
Playing a over-the-air live stream
To play a live DAB stream, the USB receiver must be connected to the device. The external USB connector can be used but it is also possible to connect the receiver from inside the case by using the USB test points. It is important to note that if the USB test points are used, it is not possible to connect the FreeRunner to a PC USB port because to USB communication will then cause conflicts. However, it is possible to connect a USB charger on the external port to provide power to both the FreeRunner and the internally connected DAB receiver.
The procedure to enable the USB receiver and to connect to a live stream is provided in the following video:
