Playing Internet Radio Streams - Webradio the easy way.

Discuss client development (or even MPD development if you feel so inclined), ask questions about the client libs, MPD feature requests from client developers, etc...

Playing Internet Radio Streams - Webradio the easy way.

Post by 6i6i » October 1st, 2013, 7:48 pm


I have a raspberry pi with mpd installed and it works really good. Altough i wish a few features, that would be nice.

I am also using XBMC and there is a plugin for automatically retrieving web radio stations and their URLS
I looked into the code of the plugin for XBMC and it is a very simple python script, wich feches the station URL's and Names and after that play this.

I tought it should be possible to implement a plugin for mpd to do the same. So that the plugin provides a "virtual" directory, where the user can browse the stations and play it.

I searched the forum and also the on the big search engine i didn't get any result how to implement a plugin for mpd.

Could you give me some advice just to get started?
