Playing internet radio
« on: November 21, 2008, 03:02:40 PM »
Thanks to Leven2e in this thread to help me get this running:

- In the Bon Echo web browser go to Add ons and choose Get Extensions and add the MediaPlayerConnectivity plug-in.
- Restart Bon Echo
- You can now play internet radio on supported websites such as www.radiofeeds.co.uk: click on the station you want to listen to - the MediaPlayerConnectivity plug-in should automatically appear on the left side of the browser.
- In the plug-in window click on the media you want to play and the built in Media Player will start. You can then minimise the Media Player to listen to music in the background!

Note that you'll have to go to the older version (0.8.3) of the plug-in with Bon Echo in the Vanilla CnM shell.

Also note this does not help with the BBC iPlayer stream, which seems very liable to lock you into realplayer  >:( I'm still working on that one...

with due respect to the BBC, the iPlayer is really underwhelming...

Just to let you know that you can find a fully functioning IPRadio in Wicknix's retro.img distro. To add your favourite internet radio stations, all you need to do is get the MedaiPlayerConnectivity addon to play internet radio stations from websites such as: http://www.radiofeeds.co.uk/mp3.asp then copy & paste the url into the add radio station function of IPRadio. To isolate the URL, right click on the link in Mediaplayerconnectivity and select properties. Fom here, you can easily copy the url into IPRadio
