Please report station errors here

Oh no - it’s of a form which causes Roon to stop at the end of each track.

The Flac stream carries metadata (I didn’t think it did at first) which means each track is a separate stream. Roon stops at the end of a track as it thinks the stream has finished. It’s a problem that the Roon devs know about.

Sorry about that, although there is now a 320k MP3 stream…

EDIT. As the website shows the metadata, there is actually no need for the station to include it in the stream. If they made it a standard flac stream we would be alright.

As the stream won’t play nicely in Roon, I’m reluctantly removing it. If you wanted to add it to your my live radio it is

It Seems that DR ( danish national radio) stations do not show meta data correctly in Roon. The metadata can no longer be selected by the listener in roon, making it difficult to add new interresting albums to the collection. DR seem to be bradcasting metadata using ICY - http://live-icy.gss.dr.dk:8000/A/A22L.mp3

Hello @Thomas_Leistiko , you’re right, but I don’t know why. Looking at the logs, Roon makes no attempt to match the metadata. I’m guessing it doesn’t like the format with a “/” in the middle.

I’ll raise it with the Devs.

Hi @BrianW the Klasu Pro stream stopped working a month or two ago, and is still out for me. is this a geo-fencing issue? I’m in the US.

It looks like the site doesn’t stream anymore. I can’t see where the website displays a stream and other sites also faiI.
I have unlisted the station.

Hello @Thomas_Leistiko , you’re in luck, The wonderful @alec_eiffel has done his magic and added the station to the Metadata Service that enables metadata to be extracted from difficult stations.

The end result is that you are now able to find those new interesting albums…

You’re welcome, All, let me know if other DR stations need treatment.

EDIT: looks like all of them require a fix… Will do later in the week.

DR P1, DR P2, DR P3, DR P6 Beat and DR P8 Jazz have been added to the Metadata Service.

EDIT : metadata is from time to time not available or sent with the wrong timing (like song info available only at the middle of the song…). This is really because of DR, not me :slight_smile:

Wow - thanks for helping out Alec - really appreciate this. Just tried it this evening… right now it seems that the P8 metadata is stuck on always displaying “DRP8 JAZZ”. I’ll check back later to see if it continues like that. Brgds Thomas

Yeah, P8 Jazz is not always saying what it plays… Can’t do much about it :slight_smile:

You’re right -now it works. Thx again. I use this function every day :slight_smile:

Delicious Agony does not play. The correct URL is:

http://deliciousagony.com

Strange, it plays for me. Are other radio stations ok?
Where are you?

(And the correct url is https://deliciousagony.streamguys1.com/ which is the one being used. Yours is the website url)

In Germany. It only works since I entered the url (I found on the website) manually.

I’ve just vpn’d to Germany and my URL works in VLC (I can’t run Roon in Germany), so I don’t know what could be causing your problem.

I also don’t understand how you managed to get a station added by using your website url. Roon won’t accept it as it wants an audio stream or a TuneIn address.

The URLs suggested on the website are .pls or .asx files which contain the URL I posted above.

Are you using your own my live radio version or the database version of the station?

Well, I try to explain, what I did:

At first, I searched for “delicious agony” in roon. I found this, which does not work:

I don’t know, which URL this is trying to use. I even do not know, how to find out.

I then manually added
http://deliciousagony.streamguys1.com. The website, I accidently mentioned in my first post, was filled automatically. This works fine for me.

In fact, I don’t really have a problem. I just wanted to say, that the search in roon leads to a link, that does not play. If it works for others, it’s okay. :wink:

Ok, although I don’t understand why Roon is not playing that station for you.

Incidentally, you can see the URL Roon uses by looking at the station screen…

…and you can see it’s almost the same - but Roon is using the https version. I wouldn’t have expected that to make a difference though - it doesn’t for me. You might try adding that version just in case there is something awry with your setup.

Never mind, as long as you’re ok now.

Clyde is back up - for the time being…

None of the “Greatest Hits Radio” UK streams are working

I suspect they’re the regional ones I haven’t done yet. The non-regional one - just Greatest hits radio - no region in the title, should work. (GB only)

Did you have a specific one in mind?
