[SOLVED] Adding Radio stations and logos
#1
Hi,

Currently I am trying to add my own radio stations to Moode 4.1
I am doing this through ssh by adding .pls files to /var/lib/mpd/music/radio
This part works well. (I know I can also use the web interface for this).

Now I also want to add images to the stations.
I downloaded the logos and I added them to /var/www/images/radio-images
Next, I went into the sqlite database, and in the table cfg_radio I added an entry like such:


Code:
186|http://streams.ffh.de/ffhchannels/mp3/hqlounge.m3u|FFH Lounge Radio||local

Whereby I understood that if I put in "local" for the logo column, Moode will look in /var/www/images/radio-images for a file named as in the column "name".

The issue: I do not get to see the logo of the radio station in the web interface when it plays.

what am I doing wrong please?

thanks,

Hendrik-Jan

Hi, Hendrik-Jan

The magic happens in /var/www/inc/playerlib.php where code maps your example name "FFH Lounge Radio" to the logo file "FFH Lounge Radio.png" in the directory /var/www/images/radio-logos

So, are your logo files .png files and are they in /var/www/images/radio-logos (not radio-images)?

Hi Kent,

indeed the files are in /radio-logos (my bad, sorry).
I created 2 new radio stations. 1 has a .png file, and 1 has a.jpg file
neither of them seems to work...

thanks,

Hendrik-Jan

Hi,

I think this might be cuz your url in the sql table is the playlist url and not the direct stream url for the station.

Hi Tim,

could be, but this is actually also what I have in the .pls file:

FFH Lounge Radio.pls :
[code]
[playlist]
Title1=FFH Lounge Radio
File1=http://streams.ffh.de/ffhchannels/mp3/hqlounge.m3u
File2=http://mp3.ffh.de/ffhchannels/hqlounge.mp3
NumberOfEntries=2
[/code


What should I put in the db?

thanks,

Hendrik-Jan

Hi Tim,

audio info says:
http://mp3.ffh.de/ffhchannels/hqlounge.mp3

The radio logo feature uses the playable url and thus the entry in the sql table needs to be:

http://mp3.ffh.de/ffhchannels/hqlounge.mp3

Right,

I now have in the sqlite database:
Code:
id|station|name|permalink|logo
186|http://mp3.ffh.de/ffhchannels/hqlounge.mp3|FFH Lounge Radio||local

In /var/www/images/radio-logos
I have a file called: FFH Lounge Radio.png

But I still do not get the image.
What am I missing?

thanks,

OK, I needed a reboot to actually make this "stick".

@Tim:
could you tell me why having the actual station source link makes that much of a difference?

thanks,

Hendrik-Jan

P.S. if you are ok with this, I would like to make a small tutorial how to add radio stations with images.
