Description:

RadioBox is an internet radio player based on mplayer.
The player comes with preloaded Israeli stations, but it's easy change the theme to support other radio stations.

supported actions are: play, pause, stop, recording, volume up, volume down and channel changing.

The theme assumes that your audio plugin is aRts in order to update the volume level - I don't know if the theme will work well on other plugins.
please post here about other plugins - full info in the README file.

more info on all subject in the README file.

please note that loading the theme takes about 2 seconds.

I wouldn't recommend adding the specular highlight to the playlist. Imo the playlist should be flat. Otherwise it loooks great! and yes, I use xmms to listen to internet radio. But ra are real audio, which might not be supported in xmms.

getting the real address is a bit tricky.

what I do is first check if the address works, this time it didnt.

next i wget the file (from the console):
wget "http://www.bbc.co.uk/worldservice/ram/live_infent.ram"

this is normally a text file, in the text file is the real address:

"rtsp://rmlivev8.bbc.net.uk/farm/*/ev7/live24/worldservice/liveinfent.ra"

use this address to listen to bbc.

This is a great theme. GOD JOB!. The blue color is all i need for my aqua-style desktop.

I have a problem with the playlist: is invisible, i can't view or select the channels but can move the theme (with the cursor in the "invisible" area of the list).

Any idea?

The list doesn't load if you press the right most button? there are three buttons there - one to open and close the list - the other two to scroll between menus.

I realize that they are hard to spot - I should point them out on the next release.

or is it a different problem?

do you have any other information that you could give me?
whats the output on the screen, does this happen all the time or only some time?
Try changing the script on line 44 to menuOn = True - does this help?

you don't need a radio tuner.
all you need is mplayer installed on your system.

I'll think about an xmms version (can xmms play internet radio station?

Its very nice and it (almost) works =) But
i have two small problems.

1.I cant adjust volume.Im pressing the volume buttons and nothing is happening.

2.List of radio stations are sometimes disappearing without reason.

Well it is good idea (in my opinion) and it is very useful for me.It looks nice and
im going to use that from now ;)

Thanks :)

1) about the volume - In the program I assume you use aRts - thats the way my computer is configured.
I know that not everyone is using aRts (ALSA and OSS comes to mind) but I don't know what the volume commands for these plugins are.

If someone can point out the way to use them, I'll be happy to include support in the next version.

what I need is a command that shows the current volume value, an example of the output and a command(s) to manipulate the volume level - all from the console.

2) Try to find a pattern to this issue, I want to hear about all the bugs in order to fix them for the next version
