Title: IP Radio register
Post by: Leven2e on January 18, 2009, 06:34:05 PM
I found it on SkyTone's website.What the heck is it?Wifi patch maybe?
        Name:IP Radio register Download
     

http://www.skytone.net.cn/en/download_show.php?id=2&smallclass=12&article_id=133

Also "VideoOnline-Register".I didn't try it,I don't need it,my videoonline player works fine.

Sounds like it could be some sort of list containing radio stations that stream over the internet.

I'm too scared to try it as everything is working fine at the moment!

I downloaded the file, wanting to 'have a go', but looking at the file once d'loaded it's 0 bytes long....

Now it can be downloaded,however needs to be registered for full working.By default it has only 4 stations playable.
Shame on them! They should give it for free.Or include in the latest recovery file,fully working.Just like the VideoOnline.The netbook really should know it by default.They ought to apologize for not providing them long time before!!

Do you think it safe to pay for its register? it seems a fairly handy tool (if i could find decent radio stations!) also if i did pay and register do you think i could get hold of british stations while abroad? im going away for 6 months and would like to use the radio on my cnm notebook for the football/news, i would go on streaming radio sites but the media connectivity plug in does'nt work, it keeps asking which kind to use like real player, media player etc when i choose a station.

I havent tried this yet, but i noticed the built in 4 stations are just in a .conf file. Edit /share/ipradio/data/setup.data. In it you will see the default 4 stations and their urls. I'm assuming you could just remove those and add your own preferred stations to it.

An easy way to get streaming radio urls is go to say shoutcast.com and find a station. Then left click on the 'listen now' tab and 'save as'. It will save the .pls file. Now open/edit the .pls file. Inside is the url you will need to add.  ;D

once it registered you can add (edit) new stations.But you dont have too if you edit the setup.data as suggested below,but the at every start there will be a pop up to remind you to register this dodgy software..

Wicknix delivers yet again ! Great detective work, dude.   8)

And thanks for pointing me towards Shoutcast - I didn't realise there were so many Internet radio stations out there. I've got a nice selection of rock stations configured on ipradio rather than those bizarre default ones. Good clear reproduction, too !

I've been using the MEDIAPLAYERCONNECTIVITY add-on with Firefox to listen to Shoutcast and:

http://archoslinks.weebly.com/canadian-radio.html

but have some problems with:

http://www.radiofeeds.co.uk/mp3.asp
(UK stations broadcasting on the Internet but note there's a restrction if you're abroad, whereas archoslinks has no restriction in the ROT World section...)

So... be interested if IP Radio can deal with these OK.

Unh.

Cheers for that, although i am struggling to find a link for bbc 5live/world service that i can save as .pls to use for ip radio. i have looked across the internet, shoutcast only has bbc radio1, and radiofeeds wont let me right click the links if anybody knows other radio sites which can save the link the same way as shoutcast???

Hi johnc. After this last post I've re-read your original post and usually a wizard starts up when you first run MPC. It usually does a good job of finding what is on your minibook that will work with it.

However, if it hasn't run and filled in the blanks all is not lost. You need to manually enter the word  xine  into the boxes on the correct page of the MPC config - xine supports many audio and video formats so you can really put it in all boxes! :) (the wiki details them - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Xine (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Xine) )

I know that doesn't answer your last post, but hopefully being able to use MPC may help one way or another...

Cheers pal  :) appreciate the help, now all i need to do is find a radio site which will play while i am abroad. Also do you know if this plug in is good for streaming tv/sports? and if so what sites work?

ps i dont know what i would do without this forum, to me it is the bible for my notebook  ;D

No, I've not investigated different sites for streaming TV, just used YouTube. Perhaps you could have a look round on your PC and see what sites there are and then try them on the Elonex and let us know what works and what doesn't. We can then go on from there.

Re. your last paragraph :) Well we strive to help as quickly as possible, and we can actually do miracles.... but they take a little longer....  :o

Glad that little trick worked for adding other stations to it.  ;D

Hi

Afraid I've come into this thread rather late...

In some ways I am fortunate in that I have a registered version of IP Radio on my CnM.
Trouble is I don't understand how this mms stuff works! Google doesn't help much, so I am relying on the forum to help me.

I followed the link to shoutcast.com - what an amazing selection of stations out there - but HOW to convert the station urls into mms so I can store them in my IP Radio lists?

- I read wicknix's post:

"An easy way to get streaming radio urls is go to say shoutcast.com and find a station. Then left click on the 'listen now' tab and 'save as'. It will save the .pls file."
- but didn't understand it

Please be gentle - I'm an old greybeard programmer, but a Linux virgin, just returned to the CnM fold.

Thanks in anticipation

can't you just play all those streams with vlc player?
Title: Re: IP Radio register
Post by: Freddie43 on June 01, 2009, 03:28:15 AM
Well, since I have a registered version of IP Radio I would rather like to use it.

Anyway I don't know what vicplayer is, where to find it, how to load it, or how to use it.

I just want to know what mms is and how to find the urls...

- I told you I was a Linux virgin!

I can't say I've ever used IP Radio with Shoutcast but have used other apps. on different devices and I've always just clicked on TUNE IN on Shoutcast. Some stations work but there are some that don't..... perhaps those not transmitting or gone belly up. But you do have to wait perhaps up to 30 seconds before hearing music while the buffer fills up. Also, some devices prefer http://classic.shoutcast.com

.mms is a sound extension, like .txt is for text  and .wav is for sound too. The app. should just play the music IF it has the .mms codec available. Really, it has nothing to do with Linux.

Unh.

Thanks Unhban, but maybe I'm not explaining myself too well...

There are two issues here:
1) Yes, I can play things in shoutcast, and
2) IF if have the .mms ref of a station, I can enter it in IP Radio's playlist and play it from there...

BUT the problem is: HOW do I get the mms ref of a station that I like? - so that I can put it into IP Radio's playlist - so far I have only entered those that people have recommended. Is there an mms list somewhere or a search facility?
