6-Jan-2023. I HAVE BBG’s IN TRANSIT AND THEY ARE EXPECTED 9-11th Jan 2023. ANY ORDERS INCLUDING THEM WILL BE SHIPPED WHEN THEY ARRIVE.
SeeedStudio BeagleBone Green (BBG) is a joint effort by BeagleBoard.org and Seeed Studio. It is based on the open-source hardware design of BeagleBone Black and developed into this differentiated version. The BBG has included two Grove connectors, making it easier to connect to the large family of Grove sensors. The on-board HDMI is removed to make room for these Grove connectors.

The Falcon Player image needed can be downloaded from https://github.com/FalconChristmas/fpp/releases/ . It is the FPP-v*.*-BBB.img.zip that you will need rather than the Pi image.
Older versions of FPP can be found/downloaded from the link https://github.com/FalconChristmas/fpp/releases/tag/*.* where the *.* is actually a release number like 4.6.
Windows will sometimes not automatically download the usb virtual ethernet driver for the BBG.
Drivers for the Beaglebone Green can be downloaded from https://wiki.seeedstudio.com/BeagleBone_Green/#getting-started or here. The zip file contains both 32bit and 64bit Windows drivers.
Windows 10 users who get a driver failed to install issue it will be because of the strict driver digital signing with Win10. Currently the only way to get the drivers to install is to disable the digital signing while installing. Windows will likely ask several times if you want to install each of the drivers. Select yes each time. A good video on the convoluted process to disable driver signing is below.
