Default Playing internet radio streams under OpenBSD

At this moment I am listening to http://www.zappa.com/zapparadio/ under Ubuntu (long story). This Zappa audio stream from live365.com is played by the Gnome Totem movie player.

Would that player work under OpenBSD? I don't mind installing Gnome on one of my snapshot machines.

Does anybody have experiences with the audio/aqualung port? It is the only port/package I could find via http://openports.se/audio

PS. Yes I have read the FAQ (http://openbsd.org/faq/faq13.html#streaming)

J65nko,

I am so happy you asked that question. Just couple of days ago I was playing with similar things. Namely, I want to listen to Moskva.fm radio as well as Radio Television Serbia live program.


Moskva.fm uses flash to deliver radio as many other internet radio stations. So I was unable to play it. Recently swfdec-plugin was updated to the latest 8.2 for 4.6 release. The reason the port was stale is the lack of support for OSS audio by swfdec which was dropped around 6.8. I heard good reports about latest swfdec. It should be as good as Flash 9. Unfortunately I have no clue if there is work around for OSS problem. I know that Jake has submitted some patches to swfdec but they refuse because they want to support only ALSA.

Speaking of RTS it is RAM file. Theoretically mplayer plugin should play it without any problems. I had no luck on OpenBSD. I tested with SLAX. Plays without any problems.The Mplayer, ffmpeg, and similar ports are badly outdated for OpenBSD. However as we speak the MAJOR effort is under way to bring those ports to the latest releases. Just look the versions in current.

I absolutely have no experience with audio/Aqualung. Please let me know when you test it.

I found shell-fm which is the shell client for British Last.fm radio. It is FANTASTIC. I am speechless how good are both
the client and Last.fm station.

xmms has fm plugin. It didn't work for me.

There is also something called /net/flvstreamer for streaming media content. The problem with that is that you have to supply rtmp url which means you have to see the source code of the web-site.
It looks like /multimedia/get_iplayer should help but I have not played enough with it.

I am all ears and eyes to see posts on this thread.

Thank you,
OKO

You can play this stream with mplayer.. vlc.. or even ffmpeg, it is MP3 encoded.

http://www.live365.com/cgi-bin/play....o&filename.pls

This file is a text play list, copy the link from within it into any program and.. wait.

Absolutely correct!!! I have not checked before posting. However I clam that Lat.FM radio http://www.last.fm/
is far better. You do have to register for free account however.

BSDfan666 could you check if you can play the following link?

http://www.rts.rs/page/live/ci.html

The RAM file contains
rtsp://helix.beotel.net/encoder/rts1.rm

How do you play that crap?

I am a moron. I was blocking port 554 used by rtsp service. I can play it without any problems with MPlayer

This is how you can even record the file

Code:
mplayer -noframedrop -dumpfile out.rm -dumpstream rtsp://url/to/file.rm
I want to mention that RTSP service by default uses UDP protocol. To force it to use TCP

Code:
mplayer -rtsp-stream-over-tcp rtsp://url/to/file.rm

I am able to play http://live365.com streams with mplayer. My problem was that firefox didn't offer to save a play.pls file.
After creating an live365 account, you can configure not to use the default Flash player.
Now firefox offered to save a play.pls file.

My first stage was to copy the url from the play.pls file and feed it to mplayer
Code:
$ mplayer 'http://www.live365.com/play/304512?auth=d16b3e911d9de95d3b0dedcfff6
4c6f8-1251516247-compaxx&ss=major_j65%3AREH00CtMQNt4L5F&tag=
live365&token=660e15ffc46c9233b349666b0788788c-2419280080601
251&sid=xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx-1251418953547076&lid
=nh-nld&from=pls'
Note that you have to use single quotes to prevent the shell from doing weird things with characters like '&'. Be warned that I replaced my IP address with 'xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx' .

After reading the mplayer manual I found you can pass it the name of a playlist file. So it is as simple as
Code:
$ mplayer -playlist Desktop/play.pls
Code:
MPlayer 1.0rc2-3.3.5 (C) 2000-2007 MPlayer Team
CPU: Intel(R) Pentium(R) 4 CPU 2.00GHz (Family: 15, Model: 2, Stepping: 4)
