Is there a plugin that'll let me stream internet radio?

Post by maryadavies » Tue May 15, 2018 3:06 am

Okay. If you didn't know, the company that does TuneIn Radio quietly killed the service on the PS3. causing it to error about no internet connection when there IS a internet connection. (ARGH!) :(

Trouble is I was listening to FF Radio with it; I was wondering. Is there a plugin for Universal Media Server that'll let you 'cast a internet radio station like that to the PS3/4 so I can replace it? Thanks if you can point me at one. ^^

Bummer. Maybe someone can make one later; I'm sure this won't be the only thing that gets cut off.

We have the ability to add internet radio without a plugin, by adding your stream to the file "Web.conf"
We are also close to releasing an interface so you don't have to edit a file to do this

Subjunk; I'll be looking forward to that and hope that it does work with the station. Since I have wireless headphones, it just would be nice to NOT have to grab my phone when I want to walk around the upstairs while listening..

If it helps for testing, it's a standard .m3U file if you click on the Shoutcast/Winamp link, which I think is pretty normal.

Ok great, I'm not sure if we currently support that format for live streams (we do support it for local playlists) but I am interested in adding support for it, and I will use that radio station you posted to test

Thank you Subjunk! If I see any internet radio that uses another format I'll link it here so we can get it working. I might not be the only one annoyed by this discovery about Tunein Radio, really, for little indie stations like FF Radio. And I betcha not everyone likes video game tunes..

Tho I think for most that use the old Shoutcast standard, that's the standard format, but don't quote me on that.

I will. Also the owner of FF Radio, Helkaweth, said he's interested in helping out with this if you need help. I've pointed him at the Github thread; hopefully that'll help solve this!
