Amarok 2.x Scripts by gstnet 17 comments

For some buggy reason Amarok prior to 2.8.0 won't resolve the Radio 1 stream URLs (I'm using 2.7.1 on KDE 4.10.5). If this applies to you and you're unable/unwilling to upgrade KDE/Amarok right now but still determined to listen to these channels, try this:

Add the stream you want to your playlist. Using Halifax as an example, the playlist entry should say something like

Stream (http://3383.live.streamtheworld.com:80/CBC_R1_HFX_H_SC)

Mouse click on the box to get a text cursor and select just the URL (the "http://" part onwards) up to BUT NOT INCLUDING "_SC". Take a copy (CTRL+C) of this.

http://3383.live.streamtheworld.com:80/CBC_R1_HFX_H

Then, under the Playlist menu choose Add Stream... Paste (CTRL+V) your copied URL into the dialog box. The resulting entry should now resolve correctly and play. - Dec 17 2013

Amarok 2.x Scripts by gstnet 17 comments

Hi gstnet, are you still interested in maintaining this script? I ask because, while I'm not, I have taken the liberty of updating the whole thing.

It now supports all of CBC's much-hyped 50+ web radio stations, Radio 1, Radio 2 (including international Eastern and Pacific), Radio 3, and Sonica. Plus I gave it a nice alpha-channel icon of the CBC logo.

Everything works perfectly except the Radio 1 channels (which is odd because they play fine if I run their source URLs through mplayer off my terminal).

Anyway, let me know if you're interested, and I'll email you a tarball of my changes. - Dec 14 2013
