Radio Paradise
We seem to be straying from the original question. 

If Tim wishes the predefined moOde radio directory to be a showcase of stations which meet criteria such as free of advertising, music of interest to his users, and replete with streaming metadata, so be it. Any user can add stations to their directory, and when @duracell80 releases his code any user will have tools fully to curate their own, custom collection out of whatever they find on the Internet.

Meanwhile, I note that Radio Paradise is publishing endpoints which return now-playing information. See, e.g., for the default channel and (where n=1,2,3) for various channels. 

In quick tests, I'm left uncertain just how synchronized these endpoints are with the streams, or even which goes with which stream, but it's what ya do with what ya got. An enterprising coder could create a Radio Paradise handler for moOde and submit a PR to Tim (analogously to the Radio Paradise plugin someone created for another MPD-based music player). 

OTOH, the random posts to the RP forum suggest to me that all these new streams are in a state of flux, so I personally wouldn't invest any time writing code for them.

Would love RP as a default, couldn't you use a 320k aac or mp3 stream which includes meta info:
This station in moOde uses this URL

Radio Paradise FLAC stream now includes track metadata. Hopefully this will qualify it for consideration to be included by default in moode's radio stations.

(it shouldn't be this hard, RP is already one of the most popular high quality streaming radios out there, plus there are plenty of other stations in moode with no metadata, cough JB cough)
Nothing technically hard about it, although keeping up with the changing Internet radio landscape is. The RP website still declares of the FLAC links, "[T]hese links currently do not currently include stream metadata (song title info). Not our choice. We would if we could."

Etiquette *cough* suggests posting the actual links being proposed as well as links to suitable artwork.

Sure we can add, just post the playable url and I'll test it out.

I tested a couple of the streams and for sure there is metadata :-)


1. What is the streaming bitrate?

When I query MPD it shows 0 as the bitrate.

pi@rp3:~ $ telnet localhost 6600
Trying ::1...
Connected to localhost.
Escape character is '^]'.
OK MPD 0.21.11
volume: 12
repeat: 0
random: 0
single: 0
consume: 0
playlist: 254
playlistlength: 54
mixrampdb: 0.000000
state: play
song: 53
songid: 54

2. Are these 16.44.1 sources streamed as FLAC?

3. Do the various streams have different station logo's?
