I am happy to announce that over 60 Internet Radio stations now benefit from exclusive metadata in Live Radio!
BBC, Radio France, most FLAC and other stations are not streaming metadata natively, for various reasons. As a big BBC Radio 6 and Radio France fan, I was frustrated not to see the artist and song title in Roon. WIth the initial help of @sebastien, I built a metadata retriever, which is now connected to Roon servers. A big thank you to @mike @vova @nathan and @BrianW for their support!
All Roon suscribers benefit from the extra-functionality, no configuration or extension is required .
The list of metadata enabled stations is available on the radio-metadata.fr server front page. There’s a link for (small!) donations if you think I deserve a beer for the benefit you get .
My preferred channels are BBC Radio 6 Music, FIP, France Inter, CRo Jazz (FLAC), France Musique, Mother Earth (FLAC), Naim Radio/Naim Classical (FLAC).
If you have questions, bug reports, or requests for more stations to be considered, post here or contact me through the chatbox on the server’s home page.
