PS3-Radio: How to add thousands of radio station to PS3MS

Postby ps3-radio » Fri Jul 31, 2009 5:58 pm

PS3-Radio will download from a public web site a list of thousands of radio stations.

It will then sort the list by Country and remove any station that will not work with PS3 Media Server.
I have found that URLs ending with ASX or M3U will not play on the PS3. Those entries are automatically removed.

To make this work, copy the PS3-Radio.exe into the c:\program files\PS3 Media Server directory
Run the program and click on Steps 1, 2, 3.

Note:
STEP 1 takes a very long time to download. It takes at least 10 minutes on my computer.
STEPS 2 & 3 run in less than a second.
This program adds the radio station entries to web.conf

Once you have completed all 3 steps, restart the PS3 service on your computer to activate the changes.

<<< Using your PS3 >>>

Using the PS3, navigate to the Music menu.
Scroll down and you should see World-Radio as a new menu item.
Select it and enjoy thousands of radio stations from all over the world!

Why not post the list of radio stations, so that I can copy it into web.conf? Why do I need to run an "unknown" program?

I have updated the ZIP file. For those people that do not want to run the program themselves, you could manually append the file. The file is also useful for Mac/OSX users.

However, I should note that the public database is always changing. The ps3radio program will go out and grab the latest data and update the ps3 for you. I will make sure the program continues to work but I am not going to post weekly versions of the list (defeats the purpose of making ps3ms.exe)

Big update.... I have added country flags!

When you are browsing, you now see the icon of the country of origin for the station (World Radio right !!??)

The news folder is now very colorful.

Hi, thanks for this great tool.

I have a small wish list:
- Is it possible to integrate this software as PMS plugin?
- Is it possible to do some changes in your part of web.conf? audiostream.Web,World-Radio instead of audiostream.World-Radio and %20 instead of spaces for icon url would be great, e.g.
audiostream.Web,World-Radio,Listings by Country,G,Germany=SLR2,http://core-host.org:11001/,file:///C:/Programme/PS3%20Media%20Server/PS3-Radio-Icons/125px-Flag_of_GERMANY.svg.png

Thanks, Otmanix
I provide NO application support via PM, so please post your question to the forum.

----------------------------------
Adding your own Radio Stations:
----------------------------------
In the same directory as all of the PS3-RADIO files, you will see a file called FAVORITES.CSV
Find a working radio station URL. I suggest using WINAMP and display the web address of the currently playing station.
Paste that entry into favorites with a description.

Example:
Using winamp, I click on the scrolling song name and a popup displayed the URL as: http://206.71.145.10:8010
Using Windows Notepad, I then paste the following line into favorites.csv:
Radio Paradise,http://206.71.145.10:8010

re-run PS3-RADIO and your new entry will appear in the favorites menu of your PS3.

update (as requested):

10 August 2009:
- The icon location for the World Radio data is converted to remove embedded spaces and changed to a "%20" which is the web friendly method of specifying an URL
- Added a 'Remove ALL' button to remove all World-Radio stations from your web.conf
- A file called PS3-RADIO.CONF is read to see if it contains a line of data. That line is used as the prefix to the menu location on your PS3.
Example:
I like "World-Radio" to appear in the top level menu. That means my prefix should be: audiostream.World-Radio
However, if you want the listing to appear under "Web", change the prefix to: audiostream.Web,World-Radio
