Is there still a way to play internet radio on the bridge?


#1

Hi!

how to play lossless internet radio http://www.europaradiojazz.org on the bridge? It seems the stream is flac. I’m not sure there is a way to serve it to the bridge. Any suggestions?

thanks.

If anyone can give a short introduction, I’m also interested how internetradio (perferably cost free) is usable with the bridge. I remember I read about it somewhere as an option, but don’t find it anymore.

The easiest way it to use JRiver. You find the URL of that radio station you want to play, Then use “Open Url” in the file menu.

MinimServer users can do this also. Install the MinimStreamer component, http://minimstreamer.com/ ; directions for playing radio streams are on the site.

BubbleUPnP control point (Android only) lets you put a radio station URL into a playlist, IIRC. I don’t have my Android tablet here but I can check later if anybody can’t figure it out. I often listen to my favorite radio station this way.

Thanks, great!

Is there also an option to choose between different radio stations and playing files with jremote?

and is there a URL that enables a selection of different radio stations instead of adding multiple URLs manually?

Jazznut, to select internet radio stations in JRemote set up a playlist and add the stations to it. To select multiple URLs: In JRiver on the Play screen (the one with “Playing Now”, “Audio”, “Images”, etc. on the left side) look under “Audio” and select “Connected Media”. There a number of preloaded sites with different kinds of music. I can’t say they are necessarily the best paths to the station you want, but it may be easier to use. Hope that helps!
