Which Raspberry Pi does Yodeck support?
Yodeck was build with the Raspberry Pi 4 Model B in mind. The experience has been optimized for this device.
This is what we ship with our Yodeck Player. Get it for FREE with the Annual Plan! For a detailed compatibility information of Yodeck and the different Raspberry Pi versions, please click here.
Yodeck is fully supported on all units with more than 1GB of RAM (with 4 CPU cores):
- Raspberry Pi 2
- Raspberry Pi 3
- Raspberry Pi 3 Compute Module (+ lite version)
- Raspberry Pi 3 Compute Module NEC Edition
- Raspberry Pi 3 B+
- Raspberry Pi 4 (1GB/2GB/4GB/8GB models)
512MB units (with 1 CPU core) are slow but work fine. You should only use them for 1 full-screen Playlist, perhaps safely adding a single ticker. (Of course, we recommend against these for future-proof installations.)
- Raspberry Pi Model B, Rev 2 - this is the “standard” Pi 1, widely available
- Raspberry Pi Model A+
- Raspberry Pi Model B+
- Raspberry Pi Compute Module
- Raspberry Pi Zero
- Raspberry Pi Zero W - this required a custom image, check out this post on our blog
256MB models (1 CPU core) will be sluggish and will probably fail
at some point.
We recommend to not use these models with Yodeck.
- Raspberry Pi Model A
- Raspberry Pi Model B - this is the very first Pi 1 released, now rarely encountered
