Cool Streams Reloaded (CSR v1.2.x)

Twitter:  Link
Downloads:  374
Submitted:  Feb 8 2010
Updated:  Oct 9 2010


Edited Cool Streams and added extra stations to cover more genres and tastes. Plan is to add more stations with time and to sort them by genre (your help with genres is greatly appreciated). All extra added stations are last.fm compatible (songs are scrobbled properly).

Let me know if you have any ideas or stations to add.

Install via Script manager:
In Amarok select Tools > Script manager > Get more scripts > Search phrase: Cool Streams > select script and click Install > restart Amarok

To install from file:
In Amarok select Tools > Script manager > Install script > browse to cool_streams_reloaded.amarokscript.tar.gz > Open > OK > OK and restart Amarok.


Fixed crashing bug (thanks to Aiwendil!)
Hope everything works fine now

Added 28 more streams from 1club.fm (Blues, Classical, Hip-Hop, Electro, Oldies, Rock, Punk, Metal) so there's some for everyone;
Merged few genres into one;

Added 3 streams from http://www.psychedelik.com/ (Thanks jason1);
Few more icon changes;

Added custom icons for the script;
Some more minor code changes;

Added 8 CBC stations (shamesly stolen from CBC Radio script, hope the author doesn't mind) All of them announce artist and song title so its last.fm compatible;
Some minor genre sorting changes;

Introduced genre sorting (still in progress);

Added few extra stations to original Cool Streams script

ok, I'm stuck on genres so I need your help. what would you think is the best way to sort the genres? i was thinking on placing one station under more genres if station is declared as multiple-genre stream but im still not sure. keep in mind that the system should be effective when the number of stations becomes bigger.

oh, and feel free to leave a stream or two in comments :)

 A stream to add...

Since the Classical streams are so limited, perhaps you can add the WRR Radio stream at http://www.wrr101.com.

WRR is a classical station owned by the City of Dallas, Texas--although it is commercial in that it does have ads. Otherwise, the programming is excellent.

Added and I'll upload new version in a minute.
PS Even though that stations struggle with artist and song title so last.fm wont scrobble it properly. Thanks for your suggestion.

 Wrong genre

 by krnekit on: Jun 21 2010

Found incorrect genre for the stream
[Studio 54] 1club.fm - Studio 54
i.e. station name instead of genre. I think it must be "Disco".

Nevertheless, script is good. I think it's best replacement for ShoutCast.

I found that this script causes Amarok to crash. See https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=245990 for more details

Crashes Amarok 2.3.2 for me also. But to present a solution and follow my narcissistic tendencies and quoting myself form a knowledge base question according to this:


First install the script again from withint Amarok with the script manager. Then quit amarok. To prevent Amarok from crashing when starting it again open the script file "~/.kde4/share/apps/amarok/scripts/cool_streams_reloaded/main.js" in a text editor. Before line 41 "Importer.loadQtBinding("qt.gui");" include another line "Importer.loadQtBinding("qt.core");" so that the script looks like:

# http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hochschulradio
# http://www.antenne.de/antenne/radio/frequenzen/stream.php


script = new RadioDE();
script.populate.connect( onPopulating );

Afterwards Amarok will start up, load the script and it seems to work fine for me.

Hope that helps.

So correcting it here also as I of course messed up...no real surprise. Pasted the code of the script I looked at that worked...not the code of Cool Streams Reloaded.

Correct quote:

# Free Software Foundation, Inc., #
# 51 Franklin Street, Fifth Floor, Boston, MA 02110-1301, USA. #

Importer.loadQtBinding( "qt.core" );
Importer.loadQtBinding( "qt.gui" ); //for QPixmap

function Station( name, url, description )
this.name = name;

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.
