Cycflix: Exercise Powered Entertainment

Cheesy title, I know but it got you to click. Basically this project uses an Arduino Nano connected to a stationary exercise bike to control the streaming of Netflix on a PC, I tried to get it to work with just a Raspberry Pi but I ran into problems with finding a browser which could stream Netflix on the Pi and controlling said browser with selenium. On Firefox, you need the Widevine extension which isn’t supported on the Pi so it couldn’t stream Netflix, I found a Chromium browser someone made especially for streaming Netflix on the Pi but Google stopped supporting the Chromedriver on the Pi so I couldn’t control it. I did find an old chromedriver but I couldn’t get it to work.

Here’s is the link  to the Instructables post detailing how I made it
