Internet Radio streams through playlists?

Post by NathanK » Wed Mar 19, 2008 4:44 pm

I've tried creating a m3u playlist of internet radio stream with the follow format


#EXTINF:-1,BBC Radio 1 Real RTSP

In the log file it shows twonky looking for matching files or directories.

15:00:38:775 SCAN:upnp_locate_playlist_file [rtsp://] [/public/music/BBC Radio Stations.m3u]
15:00:38:769 SCAN:locate_playlist_file_by_dir [/public/music] [rtsp://]

I also have configured links to http rather than rtsp and it still does the same thing.

Is there any way to configure internet radio stations, or get playlists to look up internet URLs?

This is how it worked for me:

- go to settings/internet radio and activate Shoutcast

- somewhere in your music directory place an m3u file that looks like this:
#EXTINF:-1, - Grooves, Passion and Lifestyle
#EXTINF:-1,Munich Radio

- restart the server and make a rescan

- on your client or via web access go to "Music" -> "Internet Radio" and you should see the name of the playlist

- select the playlist and you get the radio stations

Works perfect, never had any problems (version 4.4.4) :D
