Want to say thanks for making this plugin.
i wished along time for a plugin like this.

i cant find this plugin in any program installer.
i have it already but for others to download and be aware of listenlive.eu.
maybe you could also put your plugin in Passion-XBMC Installer Script just pm Temhil.

Hiya,

Thanks very much for this - i'm living in NZ at the mo and miss my UK radio Smile
I'm a having a little problem though ... I've just set up xbmc again for the first time in years so it may just be a setting I can't see.

When I select my radio channel i can hear a split second of the content before it starts buffering. The buffering then goes on for 20 - 30 mins before my better half runs out of patience and asks me to stop it.

Is there something i'm missing or somewhere I can check the buffering settings - I can't find them in the current setup screens.

edit: Should have mentioned - the station I was trying to get was BBC Radio 4. There were a number of different streams for this - I think the 96 k one you're not allowed to get outside of the UK, however I was getting this issue with the other 3.

Thanks again.
Alex

Hi Bootsy,

The issue was with BBC radio 4 from the UK. I'll have a play with some other stations tonight when I get home to see if i get the same problem - it may just be an issue with my setup.

Cheers.

i checked the bbc stream and i have the same problem.
there are two streams for this station. the 96kbps is 'uk only' and the other is a *.ra stream and it looks like xbmc cant handle it correct...
all bbc channels are *.ra streams, a few are *.asx and just bbc world has a 24kbps mp3 stream.

greets,
bootsy

Hi,
It seems I found a little annoying bug Smile I'm running xbmc on ubuntu linux and I can't use this plugin. When I select a country or a genre, a messagebox pops up:
Code:
Getstreams()

Error!
U'\XE9'
I think it's some sort of character coding issue (maybe foreign characters in station names? for example U'\XE9' is "é" as i know), can you fix it please?

For example, Greece is okay, but Hungary and Iceland isn't. Thanks Smile

edit:
I tried your plugin on windows with no errors, so I think it's some linux-specific character coding issue.

heya,
made an update, cuz there was a prob with some streamrates...
update via svn repo installer.

had no probs with special charakters on my pc and/or on my xbox build, like you said...

it´s a xbmc problem...i guess you have to wait until the devs solve this prob.


greets,
bootsy
