Hello! Any updates on the below? I'm happy to help finish off the plugin if the help would be appreciated. I have a Linux-based Kodi appliance and would love to see RP as a first class option on the platform.

After waiting endless months and numerous promises for an availiable Kodi/XBMC Plugin, I decided to do it by myself.
The core (playing the stream) works well, slideshow and Songinfos/Comments are upcoming, songvoting (and the needed login therefore) is planned.

I will publish the (core) plugin and all upcoming updates in the official Kodi repository if:

1. I have your permission to do so.
2. I get some image material from you (icon: 256x256 or bigger, the picture from your frontpage: width 1280 or bigger).

Great thing about the Radio plugin is that it works with Last.fm

I like scrobbling/sharing the RP experience!

I used to be able to find Radio Paradise (eclectic rock!) in the Shoutcast addon, but it's not there anymore. I tried searching for it in the Radio addon as suggested, but it was a German station called Radio-Paradise. Are there any other tips to get RP on Kodi? I listen on my iPhone, but Kodi is what my sound system is hooked up to...

EDIT: Nevermind, I found it with the Radio addon, just had to keep looking. But an RP addon would still be great.

There's a Kodi Add-on called "Radio". It's available via Indigo/tvaddons.ag, Superrepo, and probably anywhere. It provides access to hundreds of internet radio stations all over the world, one of which is Radio Paradise. Go get Radio, find Radio Paradise and create a favourite for it. None of the bells and whistles of the android app, but it's about the music, son.

For the planned songvoting function I need some infos about the login and voting processes (API). I dont want to fiddle out from the webpage, but if necessary I do so.

Hope I did someone a favour with this.

I am also a Kodi user, here's what I did. Using xbmc/Kodi go to the android play store and download radio paradise app. Open up Kodi go to programs, android apps, scroll down to rp. Press and hold menu button on remote, hit add to favorites... Go back to home screen click on star (on lower left side of screen) a menus will pop up on right side of screen click on to r.p. Hope this helps.

When it comes to making it look good,  I'd need to get some RP graphics in the correct size to display well in Kodi.  I don't know the exact pixel sizes yet, but when I do perhaps Bill or somebody could help me get these.  I'm doing this in my spare time so it might be a month or so until I finish the first release. 

 
The following XML resources might be useful — to you & perhaps others who are interested in building RP apps/widgets:

Current song: http://radioparadise.com/xml/now.xml
Last 4 songs:  http://radioparadise.com/xml/now_4.xml
Last 6 hours:  http://radioparadise.com/xml/playlist.xml
Detailed info about a song:  http://radioparadise.com/ajax_xml_song_info.php?song_id=(song_id)

By default, the ajax script returns a *lot* of data.  You can turn off datasets you're not using via these switches:

?comments=no&slideshow=no&lyrics=no&song_info=no

It also responds to comments_num=(default = 50).  If song_id is not specified, it defaults to the current song.

I can provide graphics when you need them. 

thanks

Any Progress in doing an XBMC Plugin for RP that includes the HD feed

Another great App improvement would be for the Amazon Android version to add support for FireTV.  The picture and video quality is fantastic, and it is, at it's heart, just another Android device. 

XMBC is mainly for home theater, since I'm usually on my PC working.  When listening to RP, I use my Kindle beside my PC to show the HD pictures, which doesn't interfere with PC work.... OK, sometimes the pictures are strikingly great, and enough to distract!  Incidentally, the headphone sound quality in the Kindle HDX is fantastic, better than my PC.)

Correct, I'm listening to RP on XBMC via the Shoutcast plugin, song titles are part of the stream. No song rating or HD images of course. Good thing though, I'd never get any work done! :)

BTW, is writing RP widgets generally appproved/ignored/frowned upon by Bill?

 
Approved of, as a rule (as long as they don't hammer our servers).

Might want to look at http://radioparadise.com/ajax_xml_song_info.php?song_id=X   (X = the numeric song id — or 'now' for the current song).  That returns a *ton* of data:  comments, ratings, cover art & slideshow image urls, lyrics, etc

I've never written an XBMC plugin, but a quick check with Firebug shows how the webpage works. Every 15 second it fetches http://radioparadise.com/readtxt.php with an parameter (named _) containing a timestamp in miliseconds. The result of the script seems to be the same without parameter, so it's probably only used in javascript to track the different requests. The readtxt.php script returns the full url of the image to display. It also calls jq_roku.php, to get the song title, but you can probably get the current song from XBMC anyway. Assuming you can use XBMC to play the stream and do smooth transitions between the images it shouldn't be to hard to build a plugin against the current scripts.
