Hello @Frank_Kane , Radio Calico is in our database already (although I noticed the geographical location wasn’t set - I’ve fixed that). Using the magnifying glass to find it is the easiest way.
The streams are labelled US only - is that correct?
You are correct with your understanding of Roon’s problems with Flac and metadata - it’s because of ogg’s use of BOS and EOS flags to signal new tracks; Roon thinks the stream has ended. The Devs are aware.
FYI. Radio Calico FLAC is natively supported and listed by Lumin hardware + Lumin app. Lumin Roon users can therefore invoke Lumin app to play it, before Roon adds the capability to play chained OGG FLAC with EOS.
Hi @BrianW - I just spun up a separate streaming server for Radio Calico that is running Rocket Streaming Audio Server, and this appears to send metadata on our 24/48k lossless ogg/flac stream in a way that the Roon player likes. Metadata is appearing in the player, it doesn’t stop after each track, and it has a glorious green quality indicator next to it now.
If you have a moment, could you add this new stream to our listing?
Yes, our licenses for the music we play require us to do our best to restrict listeners to the US. So, there is a geo-block on our website stream and Roon also implements one. If you found a way around it though, we won’t tell
Geo restrictions are implemented on a station-by-station basis within Roon I believe. It’s up to each station to determine where they can legally “broadcast.” Some countries are much easier to operate from than others…
