Note: Overclocking may damage your Raspberry Pi, for that reason you must have a good cooling system installed on your Raspberry Pi 4 Before overclocking.

Overclock at your own risk.

Raspbian Buster Setup on Raspberry Pi

  • First of all, to start this project we need to download the Raspbian Buster Image from the download link.

Formatting the SD Card

SD Card Formatter


Flashing the SD Card

  • Followed by writing the image to the SD Card using: Etcher


Setting up Raspberry Pi

  • Finally, plug in the SD Card, connect the Ethernet Cable and Power Supply and turn it on to boot the Raspbian Buster Operating System. Follow the online instructions to complete the setup.

Overclocking Raspberry Pi 4

Maximum Overclock for Raspberry Pi 4: 2.147 GHz max clock speed GPU Frequency: 750 We are going to overclock are system from 700 MHz to 2000 MHz. Followed by changing the over voltage to 6 for maximum power.
  • To start with overclocking you can watch vcgendcmd to see your new clock speed from Terminal
watch -n 1 vcgencmd measure_clock arm
  • After that, we can go ahead and initiate a system update & dist-upgrade process to check for any available updates.
sudo apt update 
sudo apt dist-upgrade
  • Once the update & upgrade process finishes, we can go ahead and start overclocking our system by navigating to:
sudo nano /boot/config.txt
  • Scroll down to the section marked:
#uncomment to overclock the arm. 700 MHz is the default. 
  • Followed by adding these lines to the document. After that, save the file with CTRL+O (press RETURN) and use CTRL+X to exit Nano.
  • Restart your Raspberry Pi.
sudo reboot
  • When the system starts up again, watch vcgendcmd again to see your new, faster clock speed in action:
watch -n 1 vcgencmd measure_clock arm

Method -1

  • SSH to your Pi (don’t run from the Pi console if you want pretty graphics :)) and run:
curl -fsSL -o ventz-media-pi
sh ventz-media-pi
  • This script automates the whole thing, always provides you with the latest extracted libwidevine, and makes everything much easier to maintain/update in the future.
  • Also, if there’s ever a problem/something changes from the Pi or Chromium side, you can just re-run the 1-line and fix everything.



Method -2

Let’s start installing Media Streaming Plugin [ libwidevine]

Login to root

  • Navigate to root using:
sudo su
  • Navigate to Chromium Browser folder
cd /usr/lib/chromium-browser
unzip && chmod 755
  • Download and unzip Chromium Media Browser
unzip && mv chromium-media-browser.desktop /usr/share/applications
That’s it now we are ready to use all the Media Streaming Services on Raspberry Pi.

Followed by click on Pi icon from top Left Corner and click on Internet, Then open Chromium browser Media Edition and start Play Netflix, Hulu, Disney Plus, and more.

In conclusion

  • You are all set to use Raspberry Pi 4 to run all your Media Streaming Services.
  • If you face any issue regarding this article please share your thoughts.
  • Enjoy using Netflix, Hulu, Disney Plus, and more on Raspberry Pi 4. Smile (.”_”.)
