Amarok script that adds list of CBC radio streams to Amarok's "Internet" tab.


Version: 0.6
16 Dec 2013

* ArtificePrime sent in updated script with this comment:
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.
I tested it with Amarok 2.80 on KDE 4.11 and it all works. Thank you ArtificePrime!

Version: 0.5
21 Nov 2010
* Fixed Eastern stream (thanks magicsz)

Version: 0.4

Version: 0.2
21 Dec 2009

 Radio 2 Eastern

The stream for Radio 2 Eastern points to Winnipeg and Radio 2 Central points to Toronto. The following fixes that:

 Long Overdue for an Update

 by ArtificePrime on: Dec 15 2013

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.

 [WORKAROUND] Radio 1 Streams

 by ArtificePrime on: Dec 17 2013
Score 50%

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.


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.

 The CBC Music streams need periodic maintence.

 by ChakatFirepaw on: May 17 2015
Score 50%

While I like listening to CBC Music streams, several of the streams are 'limited play' and are replaced every couple of months.

While they reuse the addresses, so you can still access some of them, you still have them labelled as the Christmas music streams and you cannot access the stream for this years "Spotlight" contest.

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
