Radio stations
#1
Hi there, 

[first, I don't remember if I wrote it before, but thanks for making Moode Audio, this is exactly the kind of tool I was looking for, and after 2 years of using it regularly, my opinion hasn't changed one bit.]

I had a couple of questions/requests concerning the radio stations:
- where can we find the (xml?) list of the stations (that would be useful to restore custom stations after updates)?
- Radio Record has an amazing choice for electronic music, I think it would be a great addition to the stations in Moode: http://air.radiorecord.ru:805/, http://www.radiorecord.ru/

Cheers,
MV

Hi, MV.

There isn't such a list of stations. For technical reasons, the information is stored in four different places (entries in a database table, .pls files in one directory, and .jpg files in two other directories). I recently wrote a couple of Python scripts to aid in saving/restoring custom stations between installs. They're a little rough and I need to revisit them but you can try them. See https://github.com/TheOldPresbyope/moode-radio-utils

They host around 80 stations, all in 320K MP3 :-)

I have the list of playable url's and we need a good radio project for October, something like a RadioRecord sub-folder with all 80 stations :-)

Any thoughts about a general capability to create/edit at least first-level sub-directories (sorry, I have a hard time calling them folders) in the Radio directory? I'd love to be able to sort stations into Jazz, Rock, Classical, SOMA, etc., sub-directories.

The Radio panel is already setup for sub-directories, Just mkdir under RADIO, populate it with pls files and then MPD update.

Btw i noticed that RadioRecord station logos don't seem to be images but rather fonts, like Font Awesome.

@swizzle, is there a way to inspect http://www.radiorecord.ru/ and derive the font library and codes they are using?

Ah, yes, good old MPD gets in the way.

I had in mind a better organization of the Radio Library as seen in the moOdeUI. For now I'm stuck to making sure my desired genres are present in the station names so a typed-in search command can narrow the field from 180+ logos to something more manageable. The preloaded stations are mostly that way already but typing on a cellphone is a nuisance.

Just saw this.

It looks like a custom font they made and it works pretty much exactly like font awesome, like they copied the css but just used a different font. I didn’t see the actual font file but it seems like there’s base64 encoded svg in the css so I think we could grab that then render the different glyphs at a decently large size and make an image for each station.
