[RELEASE] Radio Add-on (rad.io, radio.de, radio.fr) Music Plugin - sphere - 2012-01-09 14:58
I'm happy to announce my newest addon "Radio". It is a music plugin to provide quick access to more than 7000 international radio broadcasts (powered by the websites http://www.rad.io (English), http://www.radio.de (German) and http://www.radio.fr (French)). I hope it is a good replacement/addition for the shoutcast and icecast addons. Please note that there are more then just "only internet radio stations" accessible via this addon.
The root-Menu contains:
- Editorials Recommendations
- Top 100 Stations
- Browse by genre
- Browse by topic
- Browse by country
- Browse by city
- Browse by language
- Local Stations
- Search for Station
- My Stations
You can browse the stations via 115 genres, 59 topics, 94 countries, 1010 cities or 63 languages (all translated to English, German and French).
You can also put any station to the list of "My Stations" (with context menu) for quick access.
If you have any comments or feature requests feel free to reply here, do it on github or write me a mail to email@example.com
The addon is present in the official xbmc.org addon repository (dharma, eden, frodo).

I assume "no feedback" is "no issues"
So if there are no feature requests I will request a pull to the official repo in a few days...

Most of the Greek FM Radios missing while present in TuneIn

So there are just 5000 radios available with this addon - and of course, it does not list all worldwide available stations.
But I'm happy for your that the radio stations you want to listen are present in _any_ xbmc addon
If this addon would have identical content like the tunein addon i wouldn't have dont it: No one wants two addons with identical content...
If you want a station to be added you can try to write either the radio station an email with pleasing them to be added to radio.de (or rad.io or radio.fr) or you can write direct to radio.de.

Thanks for this useful plugin but I have a problem with it.
On my HTPC with Ubuntu Karmic (9.10) and XBMC 10.1 I'm getting this exception:
I also tried your plugin with latest stable OpenELEC (Python 2.6.6) and it works there just fine.

thanks for the report. I already found (and solved) that issue. The Pull is also already requested but still not on the repo. You can wait for the update or - if you are able to - you can fix it yourself, see here for the needed change.
Requested for pull is dharma 0.0.4, eden 1.0.4.
Btw. pydoc says: "Changed in version 2.5: Accept tuples as suffix". And so I assume that you have python v2.6.x installed on your ubuntu box but xbmc is using its own python v2.4.x for the execution of the addon code. In openelec xbmc is compiled with the "use external python"-flag and shipped with python v2.6.x.

I applied commit 4e735e1dc70b15947e... from you git. At first I wasn't sure coz it says "fixed error with python <2.5" and I have 2.6.4. But it worked
Thanks again for your contribution.
EDIT: Ewh... your response was fast! Thanx again for the clarification.

Cool, thanks for the report
And you are right, my commit message was not good chosen
- BlaY0 - 2012-02-19 21:49
Well, regarding that Ubuntu XBMC package uses its own python 2.4 (which I wasn't aware of till now), I guess that message is OK

This is probably a skin question but I'm a bit of a Noob here.
How would I move "My Stations" to someplace high up on my Music area?
I just wish to punch into a couple of radio stations each day and I have to do a lot of clicking down to get to My Stations.
Can one feature these or link them to the home screen somehow?
