Any Progress on Web radio for MPD ??  I seem to recall that you were going to add Curl for this for the 1.0 series.....
Mpd, S/Oil and Client 175 are now all performing very well but still not able to be used for day to day as no Web Radio streaming.  Using LMS currently.

Also noted other postings about MPD and DSD and the 1.0.8 firmware update....
This might be interesting reading.....

Web radio should work. Although I havn't really tested it myself. To check, create a playlist with your radio stations, place it in the playlist folder. And load that playlist in MPD, select a station from the list. and play.

The ALSA libs in Snakeoil is capable of native DSD. However I don't have a native DSD DAC to test this out properly (even though my USB receiver chip is supposed to work). I should add these to the configuration though, perhaps that will make that detection work better:
Code:
[code]auto_resample "no"
auto_channels "no"
auto_format "no"

Will create a ticket to do so.[/code]

Well....here's the problem... Client175 doesn't accept any of the urls of any of the stations I try.... mostly 'undefined error' or 'not acceptable'.
It won't take .pls .m3u  or http. urls.. Sad

If I open those in gedit and find the stream address and use that....it still won't accept it...

examples...http://streaming.radionomy.com/Celtic-Folk-Punk?lang=en-US%2cen%3bq%3d0.5
                http://5.152.208.98:8058/
Neither work... Angry

But if I change the address on the first example to...
https://streaming.radionomy.com/Celtic-F...%3bq%3d0.5
Then it loads and plays... Cool

However it won't do the same for other formats like...
https://5.152.208.98:8058/
Which is my #1 favourite station

I am so over client175....it has no community, no troubleshooting, no config to edit and worst of all, no damn use !

Every other mpd client works with radio streams and stream addresses... why not client175..?

Sorry, rant over, Blush ......

Well, this might explain things.... after some searching......

"The client ( client175) has been tested in Firefox 3.6.x and recent releases of Chrome on Linux. Thanks to the ExtJS javascript library, it should be compatible with all major browsers, even IE 6 "

I'm hoping the next version of Snakeoil will have a universal remote client. Then we can do away with MPDClient and use the Snakeoil one.. Just need to have the time to sit down and do the code.. Been too bz lately now I'm back at work. Huh

Also just changed Internet providers, so had to dedicate some time to get it up and running (and adjust everything in the house to accomodate)...

Hopefully soonish.. If you are aware of any other MPD webclient, please let me know and I'd replace it. Now that you mention it, 2012 is pretty old.. Blush

Blind Testing Alpha is now using ympd.. You can give that a spin if you like and see how it goes.
