Ouch. Thats an expensive and nifty system you seem to be running there. Well then, good luck on all your endeavors to come!
(Perhaps, you can contact the script-author directly, as he doesn't seem to frequent this forum all too often.)
Haha, not too expensive, to be honest. It's a QNAP TS-251+, not the most powerful but quite suitable for home use. Bought it specifically for the HDMI output, since it allows you to plug it in to any TV and manage / run apps such as Kodi, Plex, Emby, and many more, as you would on a PC...
And thanks; I've just created a new post on the script author's github page...
If it runs on an Android_TV, or on MacOS, you can always install the corresponding native RadioParadise app, which makes the Kodi-addon script for RP somewhat obsolete, I think. Even Windows has an RP app. If Kodi is run on Linux, there are other ways to get around the sense of lacking something: 'Shortwave' is a nice app to play RP on Linux systems, among others. 'Sayonara' isn't bad, either. And on any system, overall, VLC works great. For more infos on ways to play RP among other internet-radio stations on any system, check out radiobrowser.info.
â- On a side-note: â- Giacomo Tufano, who developed the first RP app for Mac and iOS (afaik) also did a port of Shortwave for Mac. Too bad, he didn't continue that one, imho. - Curiously, I can't help but think, he must have obtained a better job, working for RP as iOS developer. Of course, I'm just guessing, out of merely thin air, here.
Thanks for the reply.
I'm running Kodi Leia on my Qnap NAS, which is connected to a TV though HDMI. I've been using the 'Radio' addon to listen to RP and this works OK, but a few days ago I ran into the RP Kodi addon while testing Kodi Matrix on a PC, and really liked how it picked up album art as well as allowing for FLAC streaming. That's why I asked if there was the possibility of a Leia compatible version.
And yes, I could upgrade Kodi on the NAS to Matrix, but at the moment Matrix lacks some customisation features and addons Leia does offer... ;)
So, thank you big time, for writing and putting up that RP script! Works like a charm! - (A "skip song" feature would even add to the pleasure. I do realize, that asking for this, or even a sign-in and song-rating features would be 'too much', as you probably don't want to write a new Android app! Hahaha).
Thanks for the feedback!
About new features, I wasn't planning to do much more than the current playback, since jarro mentioned they might start working on a Kodi add-on of their own in the near future. And implementing any of the RP-specific functionality will likely require building a custom user interface.
The addon requires Kodi v19. You can currently install it via the source code Zip that GitHub generates. It would be great if more people could test it and create GitHub issues for any bugs that show up. If nothing serious is found, I'll submit this as a 1.0 release to the official Kodi repository.
Some more background: due to a lack of skill and time, I didn't want to create a custom music player GUI, so the addon is using the built-in Kodi music player. This limits the amount of customization and RP-specific features for now.
