Installing Libraries

After installing the Arduino IDE, you will probably want to build your own project.  A student asked how to run the music player that was bought from Banggood.  Of course, the Arduino "doesn't know" how to communicate with the new device, so you must install a "library"of extra commands.   It is not simple, but when it works .. you can control almost anything!

  • The Arduino IDE cannot communicate with unusual attached items.  In this picture of an mp3 player .. an extra library of commands must be installed.
  • Use the Tools Manage Libraries menu to search for the library you need.
