I'm playing that very link in your media player widget right now and it works perfectly until I try to stop playback where it stops for half a second and starts again. As I mentioned, this is a HLS Live Streaming

BBC also do some MP3 and very few non-HLS AAC streams, I've tried these and they work fine and can be stopped. I'm no expert but I believe the issue may be something around the way HLS streams differ from traditional streamed audio.

I found a workaround which is to start playing a non-HLS stream, wait for that finish buffering and then stop it.

Thanks for you feedback, I'll try to find information for playing HLS with mediaplayer. If I find something useful, I'll let you know.

No probs! Thanks again for a great widget! I just read that the 96kbps version of stream I posted may work outside the UK - http://as-hls-ww-live.bbcfmt.hs.llnwd.net/pool_904/live/ww/bbc_6music/bbc_6music.isml/bbc_6music-audio%3d96000.norewind.m3u8

I've figured out something about these BBC streams. I get the URLs for BBC radio stations from a website called radiofeeds.co.uk because the BBC are not very forthcoming with direct URLs for their content. The URL I got from there for BBC6Music was http://as-hls-uk-live.bbcfmt.hs.llnwd.net/pool_904/live/uk/bbc_6music/bbc_6music.isml/bbc_6music-audio%3d320000.norewind.m3u8 but after adding the same station in the same 320kbps AAC/HLS stream via the search on your app the URL was http://a.files.bbci.co.uk/media/live/manifesto/audio/simulcast/hls/uk/sbr_high/ak/bbc_6music.m3u8 - this latter version can be stopped without any issues so I'll just use those from now on.

Very nice! I do have a problem though, how do I add stations/streams to the widget? I've tried a few but the format was wrong and I've no idea how to, can anyone help me, please? Thanks! :)

Good afternoon. Thanks for the feedback. You can search for stations in the search engine for "internet radio". As an example, you can see it here: https://github.com/ubuntu-gr/eradio-playlist-generator/blob/master/eradio.radiostations.txt
In the future I plan to do a search for radio stations (if they are not limited by license).

Thank you! I use to listen to a few stations in the Tune In site https://tunein.com/ abd thought I could add a few ones from there but https://some_radio.com doesn't work, I took a look at the ones that ship with the widget and noticed the format was different and that's why it didn't work the way I was doing it. That eradio-playlist is just what I needed :) Thanks for the quick answer and your help solving this! :)

There are really many stations on the tunein.com website, but the address of the radio page is not the address of the radio stream. For example: the page address is https://tunein.com/radio/Radio-Record-1063-s10018/, and the stream address is http://air2.radiorecord.ru:9003/rr320_reg. This one needs to be added to the widget. The address of the stream can be seen in the source code.

Yes, I know that now. BTW, where did you get that address from? I checked the whole tunein site when first tried to add the streams and couldn't find anything.

on the page of the desired station, open the site inspector (Ctrl + Shift + I), start the player and look at the stream that is constantly loading. Then right-click on it and select "Open in a new tab." If the page with only the player opens, then this is the correct URL (you need to add it to the widget).

Excellent app. Just to question:
1. Could you add option to display text line with Artist-Track in compact view (maybe with scrolling text), not just icon? It's very useful for wide horizontal panels.
2. Maybe it's time to publish code on some git* site?

2. I've been thinking about this for a long time, but for now I do everything locally (it's easier to test).

Hi @driglu4it .
I have reinstalled my system (kde neon 20.05) and the applet doesn't work anymore. If click on "play", it is displayed "buffering" and nothing append. If I go in the settings under the search menu, I have the list of radios but with "Server status: error" in the description.
What can I do to debug that?
