I know I'm way behind regarding this, so perhaps someone can enlighten me and explain the benefits of using  Volumio, Flac, TuneIn, Sono, etc?   And why would anyone listen to RP on iTunes, when you have a perfectly good sound quality on the RP site... at least on my iMac. It is better on the new site than the Legacy, though.

The RadioParadise plugin for Volumio is now available.
It has all channels, FLAC Mellow and Main included.
It works very well, it sounds sensational!

Unfortunately, TuneIn does not support FLAC links.

We're working on a native Sonos app that will play FLAC.

Hello Bill,
First of all I want to complement you and your wife with having Radio Paradise and your music choice. My wife and I love this music station. But, unfortunately there is a but, for a few months now we have some stutters on certain moments, mostly around 5.00 - 6.00 PM Amsterdam time zone. When they occur, the song is interrupted every 10 or so seconds for the duration of 2-4 seconds.
We use a Bluesound node 2. I first contacted them, but they refer to RP. When I look in the Bleusound logfile I notice distinct errors appear:  May 27 14:52:52 (none) user.info ./ms.pl: Controller::outputUnderrun Controller.pm (2745) streamId=418
Though the Bluesound node is attached through Wifi, I don't believe that is the problem, because I can play flawless high res music from my NAS and the Bluesound reports a good Wifi connection.
The stutering lasts mostly about 10 minutes, but it is very anoying.
Maybe it is some kind internet traffic-jam, as it mostly occures about 5.00 PM every day, I don't know. Does this makes any sence tot you? I read in other posts beneath that you advise other links to streams. Unfortunately I cann't use those in the Bluesound. But on the other hand the stuters we suffer from are in a short time-span. So maybe this a different kind of problem. I'm curious what you think about this.
Greetings from the Netherlands, Han Jeurissen
 


 

We're now connecting European listeners on Bluesound devices to a different server. Seems to be working well.
 
Thank you, it does indeed work well. Very happy here again!!!

Glad that helped! Just for clarity to help others new to this thread, I'm copying Bill's reply listing all servers:

> icy-4 and icy-5 will directly call our servers in London, icy-6 or icy-8 in Texas, icy-7 in Virginia.

For most of us it's best to use these,
Main Mix: http://stream.radioparadise.com/flac
Mellow Mix: http://stream.radioparadise.com/mellow-flac
but if they don't work, replace "stream" with one of the "icy" choices above.

You mean the new streams and also the infrastructure that supports the RP apps plus third-party apps on LMS and BluOS? I certainly hope so. The apps include the ability to skip tracks, for one thing.

Having said that, Michael has the metadata working with the new streams in LMS, and this is great because the full app still has some glitches. I never skip tracks anyway. For now the new streams are only working via Favorites, but I expect he'll add both streams to the plugin soon.

Also I should note that on other forums I've seen reports that some players — notably Roon and perhaps also WinAmp — don't like the hidden load balancing redirect in these new streams, and will only work if the listener replaces "stream" with "icy-6" or "icy-8" in the url.

Wasn't aware of any issues with the load balancer. But your solution on that is indeed correct. icy-4 and icy-5 will directly call our servers in London, icy-6 or icy-8 in Texas, icy-7 in Virginia. 

The stream urls are an add-on for hardware players that can't /don't support our normal infrastructure. Definitely not a replacement. 
 

Thanks Bill, in Volumio the trial version of the RP plugin works fine.
You have the option to listen directly from the API and also to solve the problems of cuts, you can pre download the block flac.
We'll see if Marco, the creator of the plugin considers implementing it using the direct download link, although I think that as is enough.
In this post the subject is discussed:

Yes, we'll have an API endpoint you can use to grab the current now playing metadata + the time until the next song starts.

Having enjoyed and supported RP for a couple of years I tried out FLAC on the webplayer at the weekend, superb!
The URL 

http://stream.radioparadise.com/flac
Does not seem to want to work in WinAMP.

I currently use 
http://37.130.228.60/aac-320.m3u

Any thoughts?

Andrew.
