[SOLVED] adding a webradio

Postby cbueche » Thu Dec 26 2013 11:27

Hi,

I haven't found how to add a webradio. Any function for this ?
Or should I edit some file ?

Specifically, I need http://www.radioparadise.com/, no work possible without them :-)

TIA,
Charles

Hi Charles,

(edited to make it an easy reference for other users in the future)

*********************

1.) when your pi is powered on and connected, use your normal computer to open the network folder which is named "volumio". (In windows: open the explorer and type \\volumio\ in the address line)

2.) you'll find 4 subfolders, one of it is named "WebRadio". It contains all the .pls or .m3u files for the pre-installed webradio stations. For any station you want to include, simply add the corresponding .pls or .m3u file.
(Even better: You can rearrange your streams in further subfolders. I will post a separate entry for that).

3.) Just open your browser and go to the volumio WebUI, click on BROWSE and then use the little menu at the right hand side of your entry on WEBRADIO. There is an option "UPDATE THIS FOLDER", which is needed to make volumio recognise the changes.

4.) Refresh your browser and navigate to the WEBRADIO folder. The streams should be there.

************

For reference: I figured this out from the following post in the raspyfi forum:

Best regards,
Nikolas

I've found the following page:
http://www.radioparadise.com/rp_2.php?#name=Listen
which lists tons of possible streams.

Under the AAC category I found the following link giving a file with the .m3u suffix:
http://www.radioparadise.com/m3u/aac-128.m3u

I've used that for the procedure described above and it all worked out. However, I suggest to rename the file such that you can easily identify the station. The WebUI apparently just shows the file names.

**************

For the German listeners:
Die files für die Onlinestreams von Deutschlandradio Kultur, Deutschlandfunk und DRadio Wissen finden sich hier:

Could someone explain ( in very simple language please ) how to do this via a Mac as I don't have a Widows machine.

Many thanks.

I cannot any longer get this brilliant radio updater to work with volume 1.3 beta, I was forced to upgrade to 1.3 to get hifiberry to work :(
Michelangelo any ideas why after updating the WEBRADIO directory the refresh does not update the GUI and add the new streams

thanks Max

OK it works,now but the only way is by running the update MPD database from the Library menu, and only there, after you have updated the web radio directory

There is an easy Way to add stations:
- Goto http://vtuner.com/setupapp/guide/asp/Br ... rtpage.asp
- Select the desired station
- Right click on the station name
- Save xxx.m3u to the volumio webradio share
