@SonoMichele just to come up with the most boring suggestion ever: just a random old laptop lying around?
My 2007 macbook with an external hard drive is probably overdoing "low end", but it's not taking a lot of power (... it's a laptop), and it's handling reasonably well whatever I was throwing at it (file server, Minecraft, random other things). Probably a lot better than running from an SD card.
@SonoMichele ... yeah, that considerably simplifies the choice of whether to use it or not :) given the rest of the thread, +1 vote to "pi 4" then :)
(... they might even be able to transcode in hardware maybe?)
@ssafar i don’t know, right now I’m looking online for hdd and how to use it on the rasp. I’m also looking for a case and maybe a fan(?)
