  • This is a very simple and lightweight way to play DI.FM stations For a more complete version of the command with proper strings in the menu, try: (couldnt fit in the command field above) zenity --list --width 500 --height 500 --title 'DI.FM' --text 'Pick a Radio' --column 'radio' --column 'url' --print-column 2 $(curl -s | awk -F '"' '/href="http:.*\.pls.*96k/ {print $2}' | sort | awk -F '/|\.' '{print $(NF-1) " " $0}') | xargs mplayer This command line parses the html returned from and display all radio stations in a nice graphical menu. After the radio is chosen, the url is passed to mplayer so the music can start dependencies: - x11 with gtk environment - zenity: simple app for displaying gtk menus (sudo apt-get install zenity on ubuntu) - mplayer: simple audio player (sudo apt-get install mplayer on ubuntu) Show Sample Output

    zenity --list --width 500 --height 500 --column 'radio' --column 'url' --print-column 2 $(curl -s | awk -F '"' '/href="http:.*\.pls.*96k/ {print $2}' | sort | awk -F '/|\.' '{print $(NF-1) " " $0}') | xargs mplayer

  • This command asks for the station name and then connects to somafm, Great for those who have linux home entertainment boxes and ssh enabled on them, just for the CLI fiends out there ( I know I'm one of them ;) Also, don't forget to add this as alias(ie alias somafm="read -p 'Which Station? "; mplayer --reallyquite -vo none -ao sdl

    read -p "Which station? "; mplayer --reallyquiet -vo none -ao sdl${REPLY}.pls

  • The solution to a year long (and extremely frustrating) problem I've had, caused by the fact that I only have one speaker; this command downmixes the stream to monophonic output, making sure I don't miss any of the music. NOTE: When stream is in .m3u format, a -playlist option is required, as shown below: mplayer -af pan=1:0.5:0.5 -channels 1 -playlist radiostream.m3u This command works great with aliases for various channels in .bashrc. Sample below: alias radio1='mplayer -af pan=1:0.5:0.5 -channels 1 radio1stream.pls'

    mplayer -af pan=1:0.5:0.5 -channels 1 radiostream.pls

  • This is the alias command that I discussed in my prior release which you can add to your ~/.bashrc. This command asks for the station name and then connects to somafm, Great for those who have linux home entertainment boxes and ssh enabled on them, just for the CLI fiends out there ( I know I'm one of them ;) You can find future releases of this and many more scripts at the teachings of master denzuko -

    alias somafm='read -p "Which station? "; mplayer --reallyquiet -vo none -ao sdl${REPLY}.pls'
