[PLUGIN] 80s80s & 90s90s radio

This topic is dedicated to the 80s80s plugin which allows to play radio streams of the german radio service http://80s80s.de and http://90s90s.de

All channels are dedicated to the 80s or 90s and offer pop music channels with either mixed genres (Pop, Love, Dance) or dedicated 24/7 channels of artists like Depeche Mode and others.

State:
  • listening to 13 different streams in mp3 (192 kbps)
  • 24/7 channels of David Bowie, Prince, Michael Jackson, Depeche Mode
  • metadata with cover, artist, title, album
  • default station cover if no album cover available
  • last.fm scrobble (needs slight modifications in the last.fm plugin)

Project:
https://github.com/marco79cgn/volumio-plugins/blob/music-service-80s80s/plugins/music_service/80s80s

Installation:
:arrow: The plugin has to be installed manually for now using ssh and this zip file:
https://github.com/marco79cgn/volumio-p ... plugin.zip

State:
The plugin should run quite stable, tested on Raspberry Pi 3 and Zero W.
The API which delivers the metadata information is not 100% reliable though. It has quite a huge delay of ~30 seconds. This can be modified in the settings of the plugin (default: 30 sec). Some channels have news every full hour and for this time frame, the API delivers a wrong song which is not played. It should sync after the news automatically.

General Info:
Even though these are german channels on lots of them there is not a lot moderation/spoken parts so it should be quite suitable for non german speakers as well.

ciao Marco79cgn and Michelangelo.
I have updated the 80s80s plugin to support all the currently available streams on 80s80s website.
How can I send you the updated code?

Hi Dave81

I just updated the plugin as well. You can now listen to all currently available channels of both 80s80s and 90s90s. I also added all the missing covers of the stations in case the metadata delivers no result for the current song.

I will open a merge request later so that the plugin can be automatically updated.

If you want to try it now, just follow these steps:

Hi Marc, perfect timing :)

I checked your changes and we're aligned.
I just discovered some more streams on 80s80s, can you add also these?

Code: Select all
         {
            "title":"80s80s Italo Disco",
            "uri":"webeighties/8",
            "url":"http://streams.80s80s.de/italohits/mp3-192/streams.80s80s.de",
            "cover":"/albumart?sourceicon=music_service/80s80s/images/80s80s-italodisco-cover.png",
            "api":"http://iris-80s80s.loverad.io/flow.json?station=283"
         },
         {
            "title":"80s80s Christmas",
            "uri":"webeighties/9",
            "url":"http://streams.80s80s.de/christmas/mp3-192/streams.80s80s.de",
            "cover":"/albumart?sourceicon=music_service/80s80s/images/80s80s-christmas-cover.png",
            "api":"http://iris-80s80s.loverad.io/flow.json?station=75"
         },
         {
            "title":"80s80s DAB Hamburg",
            "uri":"webeighties/11",
            "url":"http://streams.80s80s.de/hamburg/mp3-192/streams.80s80s.de",
            "cover":"/albumart?sourceicon=music_service/80s80s/images/80s80s-dab-cover.png",
            "api":"http://iris-80s80s.loverad.io/flow.json?station=61"
         },

Ah, my bad, I had Italo Disco on my list and simply forgot it. :)

Didn't expect the christmas channel to be alive. In the last years this stream was only available around christmas time. But I still added it. The DAB Hamburg channel is basically the same as the Real 80s channel except for the news. I added it anyway now upon your request.

The file above in the dropbox has been updated and can be reinstalled. I also added the missing covers.
