[RELEASE] RadioTime Plugin Addon - Free Talk and Music Radio Online (WIP) - spbogie - 2010-12-04 23:13
Started work on a plugin for radiotime. Basic functionality is there, but not all streams work correctly right now (xbmc issue?). If a station you're looking for isn't listed in xbmc, but it works on radiotime.com, then it's either streaming in an incompatible format, or is a restricted/device stream. I'll look into getting these enabled once I have more functionality implemented.
Grab the latest revision from http://gitorious.org/xbmc-radiotime
Please test and let me know how everything works out. If you come across stations that don't stream correctly, pastebin the relevant sections of the log and maybe we can track down what's causing the issues.
Note: This is an Addon, it will not work with Camelot (9.11) releases.
Note: Shoutcast based streams may cause a deadlock on xbmc revisions pre-34711, please update to a more recent revision before reporting issues with these streams.
P.S. If anyone would like to provide a fanart image it would be appreciated (Please include "Powered by <radiotime logo>" as per their licensing terms)

Would love to give this a try but (embarrassingly) am also confused about the download/install process for this plugin

I've managed to download the files, by downloading master tarballed file, extracted & thrown that in C/users/MyProfile/AppData/roamingXBMC/plugins/music & can see the plugin, but cant get it to work?
Am I doing this correctly? I've never manually installed so I'm guessing here!

What I tried doing was downloading the individual files from the source tree and sticking them in a folder named "plugin.audio.radiotime" in the file path
I couldn't see the plugin when I opened XBMC, so had a look in the default.py file and although I don't really know what I'm looking at I did find a reference to "plugin.music.radiotime", so I changed the name of the folder to that. Then opened XBMC, but still no luck in seeing the program. Finally I tried zipping up the files I'd downloaded into a .zip file, and using the "install from zip" command within XBMC, but it just threw up an error message.
So, erm, those are some things that don't work, and 3 things you don't have to waste your time trying!
Any suggestions welcome!

Sorry for the confusion, I've added installation instructions to the first post. Also, note that this is an addon. It is written for xbmc Dharma and will not work with Camelot

Thanks very much! will give this a try later

Just given it a try. The radio seems to work very nicely. I wouldn't say I've done an extensive test, but I didn't find anything that wouldn't play amongst the streams I would normally use.
I did have an issue with the podcasts though. They all went down to a folder stating the name of the podcast, but none of the folders I tried contained an actual podcast to stream.
There are a few features that it'd be nice to have, but I do appreciate that this addon is a work in progress so it might simply be that you've not got to the point of adding them yet. Anyway, the features I'm talking about are:
3. this one's purely asthetic, but it'd be nice if the logos that are displayed when browsing the stations could be used as the coverart when the skin switches to the visualisation (I'm using Aeon65 which normally displays the coverart and spinning CD as the visualisation)
Thanks very much for this addon. Great work so far
