  • Initial Release.

    Hi All,

    I have just released my Internet Radio Plugin.

    The allows you Homeseer server to become a Source Device or a Low Scale distributed Audio system. I use it with my Russound system.

    The Plugin is Multi Channel and will take advantage of all active sound output channels on the system including USB soundcards.

    It works with most Audio streams, Its Preferable to use a Shoutcast or IcyCast stream as it can decode them natively, Other streams are supported by require client side transcoding (Which happens on the fly, just creates a temp file while its going).

    The Plugin will get relevant Metadata if its available from the stream and try and find a Cover Image and some info about the Band or Song.

    If you have any issues or if there is anything you would like added please let me know.

    Thanks
    Mat

      Hi MrMxyzptlk,

      To be honest I have no idea.... If you can expose a link for the file stream then yep it should....

      But if that link requires any kind of login them perhaps not....

      Best to give it a try if possible.

      I would be happy to try and add support if your willing to workthrough it with me and do some testing?

      Did you have a link to the service? ill see if i can subscribe and get it sorted.... but it may be geolocked so i might have to work through that.

      Thanks
      Mat

        Hi Mat, can this plugin play a music stream like this http://newmedia.kcrw.com/legacy/pls/kcrwmusic.pls through an HS3 speaker client?

        Thanks!

        EDIT: Answered my own question... it does play the stream but only through the speaker client on the HS3 server (so for me that means local sound card and bluetooth speaker), not through the HS3Touch speaker clients on my wall mounted iPads etc. So close

          Hi MDA,

          Not sure streaming like that is possible, Will have a look, If it is then i will make it happen.

          However, I could make the plugin remote capable and then you could run it from the speaker client?

          Or if you using Chromecast as a client then i could get the stream onto that...

          But there are limitations, Due to the way it works even if you got 3 plugins all on the same stream they would be slightly out of sync.... To capture the Track info it needs to capture the bytes and then read and decode them simultaneously.... So not great for sync.

          Thanks

            Thanks!

            I am running HS3Touch on an iPad (iOS) so cant run the plugin on that

            I don’t need sync (iPads are in different rooms on different floors so can not hear them at the same time).

            I don’t know if there is an easy way to support any speaker client like HS3 events do? For example, I can use my Sonos plug in speakers, my local speaker client, my HS3Touch apps running on iPads etc. in events.




            =Edit=

            WeatherXML plug in supports any speaker device too. Here you can see an example where I can enter the address of my Sonos speaker device:



            Unfortunately I have no idea how these geniuses do it

              I keep looking around for a Pandora music plugin. Since this seems to take an internet stream will Pandora work on this Internet Radio Plugin?

                Hi Max99,

                Apologies for the delay, If the stream is either Not Authenticated, Or you can Authenticate by URL (Which is unlikely as most services use Oauth these days) then it should work fine.....

                I am happy to look into it if you like. I suggest downloading the trial and having a go and see if it works.

                Thanks
