internet radio streaming not working?
« on: November 03, 2012, 07:34:56 pm »
Good day to all, I was checking the forum to see if anyone else was having similar issues regarding trying to add a inter radio stream.  I followed the wiki to the T several times and nothing ever shows up. I'm using 1004, and as i previously mentioned i tried several times. Is there something else that i missing from the the instructions in the wiki guys?

Doesnt matter if it streams in WMA codec. In recent snapshots, WMA playback (radio& files) appears broken.
I describe some tests in this post:
(cannot post links... check latest message in "10.04.. the time has come")

Something that I forgot to add is that this is only valid for media directors. Squeezeslaves play OK, any type of stream.
Thanks,
ted

Hi cfernandes,

Thats the thing. A 6 month old installation I had was working ok (in fact this is the one that I check out internet radio on).
When I dediced to reinstall after a core collapse from multiple updates (messages from hybrid/core that HAL device died, etc) everything was ok but WMA playback. Cant seem to figure out why.
MP3's play ok, winamp-based radio sites play ok. Nothing with WMA though (or windows codec v2 as xine reports it)

The only inconsistencies I discovered (and reported on my previous message) were concenrning the ffmpeg library mismatch.
After replacing (symlink) all ffmpeg-related files with pluto-ffmpeg binaries, the same problem persists.

All this is true in the case of media directors on all my core installations (I have 3 systems running), but in all systems squeezeslaves/squeezeboxes reproduce all (mp3,wma) streams ok.

Any clues?
ted

I am pretty sure this is my fault. I replied in the other thread mentioned.

The current upgrades should fix everything. Unless you are one one of the weirdo GT series I missed. If I were you I would
sudo -i
apt-get update
apt-get upgrade
rm /etc/asound.conf /etc/X11/xorg.con*
reboot

This will dump you in AVWizard
If you are tentative give me lspci -nn | grep VGA

I tried one of the reportedly working streams listed above with no success. the orbiters show nothing and looking within the admin files and media not a "radio" folder which if i remember correctly did exist previously....i could be wrong. Will the update listed above have any positive result? appreciate the help guys.  if i could get this working, i will get the lights dimming and a soft music station and the fireplace going in one button press and then........well you guys know where that's going lol.  ;D

Newguy2,
this is where I get my streams:
www.listenlive.eu

One of the streams that works (and listening to it as I write this) is
91.132.6.21:8003/listen.pls (with http:// in front)

Try one of them, preferrably broadcasting in winamp/shoutcast formats.

Unfortunately, the directions in the previous message do not solve the problem for me. Running the AVWizard, i noticed that AC3 playback/passthrough does not function as well. Where before the amplifier would change to Dolby Digital/DTS formats (in the surround steps of the AVWizard), now it is always stuck at PCM (even though surround sound is heard through the speakers)

thanks,
ted

Tsoukas there are now 3 audio setups iterated as AlternateSC = 0 1 or 2 in /etc/pluto.conf
I try to guess at which will be best, and apply the best solution, only once in case you decide you know bettter :P
So it may not have worked. See if you have an entry, and try one of the other two until it works... or doesn't.

You SHOULD have dolby and dts. Please also post the output of lspci -nn | grep VGA

I never quit... I just ping out.

Hi l3mce

Tsoukas there are now 3 audio setups iterated as AlternateSC = 0 1 or 2 in /etc/pluto.conf

No such configuration option exists in my /etc/pluto.conf
This is the result of the lspci command:

dcerouter_1031877:/home/linuxmce# lspci -nn|grep VGA
00:12.0 VGA compatible controller [0300]: NVIDIA Corporation C68 [GeForce 7050 PV / nForce 630a] [10de:053b] (rev a2)

Let me try all three options (and reboot in between) and i'll get back to you.
Thanks for your help.

For all intents and purposes AlternateSC not existing is the same as AlternateSC = 0

That would be what I would expect to work on that chipset though.

l3mce,
Thanks for your help but I cannot get WMA and surround sound to work.
I tried all 3 options for AlternateSC but I see not difference.

This a dump of the Xine player log.. It looks as if playback starts and stops immediately, but media appears as if its streaming. (and remote will show the file in playback.)
