I'm playing around with volumio - raspberry pi audio streamer with airplay  -- seems pretty cool. 

 

You can add radio stations, generally using a PLS file which contains the station name and streaming url. 

 

The problem I am having is that I cannot easily find streaming URL's for some of the bigger radio stations. 

 

eg, the rock, only has streaming using flash player and smartphone apps.   They don't have a url for direct streaming. 

 

Some stations use iheartradio which also uses flash. 

 

 

 

Has anyone here have a list of  NZ radio station URL's that might work with volumio ?

Here's my /var/lib/mpd/playlists/ZM.pls 

 

[playlist]
numberofentries=1
File1=http://radionetwork-iheart-ice.streamguys1.com/zmihr.aac
Title1=ZM

 

I haven't tried it for a while but it used to pull ZM from iheartRadio.

 

 

 

Also in /var/www/_player_engine.php I've made the following modification:

 

// ----- check and compare GUI state with Backend state ---- //

 

$curTrack = getTrackInfo($mpd,$status['song']);

 

if (isset($curTrack[0]['Title'])) {
    $pos = strpos($curTrack[0]['Title'],'text=');
    if ($pos === false) {
        $status['currentartist'] = $curTrack[0]['Artist'];
        $status['currentsong'] = $curTrack[0]['Title'];
        $status['currentalbum'] = $curTrack[0]['Album'];
        //$status['currentalbum'] = "testing dc";
        $status['fileext'] = parseFileStr($curTrack[0]['file'],'.');
    } else {
        $re = "/(?'artist'.+) \\- text=\\\"(?'title'.+)\\\" song/";
        preg_match($re, $curTrack[0]['Title'], $matches);
        $status['currentartist'] = $matches['artist'];
        $status['currentsong'] = $matches['title'];
        $status['currentalbum'] = 'ZM';
    }

 

} else {
    $path = parseFileStr($curTrack[0]['file'],'/');
    $status['fileext'] = parseFileStr($curTrack[0]['file'],'.');
    $status['currentartist'] = "";
    $status['currentsong'] = $song;
    $status['currentalbum'] = "path: ".$path;

 

}

 

Which will pull the track name and artist from the stream

Actually if you do make .pls files Putting a copy somewhere would be cool.  Though I wonder if IheartRadio/Mediaworks/whoever the hell else would complain.

They want you to be using their apps, not tunein or some other player, since they get the ad revenue from their apps. Stream URLs seem to change often.

That ZM one I found abour a year ago, and it still seems to work.  That was my concern as well.

I used to use tunein app on the TV and they were always crapping out. So I stopped listening since FM is crap here and they cant get their act together with DAB or DVB

Yep, i'm getting the impression they don't want us to use streaming -- but, then we don't hear their audio ads so doesn't make total sense to me.

Wondering if anyone has the url for The Station radio from Vinyl Destination Tauranga which is done through iheart radio.  I have searched but can not find any thing.

 

It's a really good radio station and has minimal ad breaks and a good blend of music, would like to get it to play with Volumio on a Rasberry pi.

BrianFM mp3 (128k) link: s40.myradiostream.com:10012

 

BrianFM aac (64k) link: acache.streamon.fm/nyc/7358_64k.aac

 

 

 

BrianFM is the best radio station ever and I won't listen to any arguments otherwise. No ads (very short voice promos every 5 mins) and the play FUNKY COLD MEDINA.
