Web Audio Streaming

Postby wolfram » Tue Dec 31, 2013 3:24 am

I have been trying to stream shoutcast internet radio stations through the PS3 media server with some success only with type AAC, I cannot stream MP3 stations, not from shoutcast or examples in the forum.

I have no success with PS3 media server streaming mp3's. From reading for Forum, I should be able to easily do so. The message I receive from my PS3 when trying to open the stream is "The data type not supported."

Have spent hours reading the Audio and Video streaming FAQ, tried many things with little success.

Has someone run into this before who can point me to the right direction?

WEB.conf looks like:
Code: Select all
audiostream.Web,Radio=*Barock Music,http://listen.radionomy.com/barock-music,http://radiotime-logos.s3.amazonaws.com/s119655q.png
audiostream.Web,Radio=SHOUTcast - Radio Rock Cafe,http://142.4.206.63:80/rrc2.aac
audiostream.Web,Radio=SHOUTcast - MP3 Test,http://yp.shoutcast.com/sbin/tunein-station.pls?id=71800


Any suggestions or thoughts?

Thanks!

I have been off and on for about a year trying to stream audio. I still haven't figured it out.

Thanks for the heads up stillman. Were you able to stream shoutcast or other internet radio besides spotify? If so, can you point me in the right direction?

Some PS3 Media Server video and audio notes I have collected which might help others getting this to work.

Note: I have gotten everything to work within the web.conf except for audio steaming from external locations such as shoutcast.

1. Installed PS3 Media Server 1.90.1 on my Widows 7 computer
2. Installed PMSEncoder.
3. Installed Python 3.3.3 needed for the next step.
4. Installed youtube-dl. This allowed the video streams Onion and Comedy Central streams in the web.conf to work.
5. Installed VideoLAN. The Podcasts within the web.conf to work. Also needed for me to stream Spotify.

At this point - everything except for streaming MP3 internet radio stations has worked.

Now I followed the instructions to successfully stream Stream Spotify with PMS
** NOTE: Since PMS 1.90.1 does not use MPlayer.web, I had to make VLC Web Audio (Legacy) the first listed Web Audio Streaming Engine within PMS.

Hope this helps some.

If someone has figured out how to stream MP3 internet radio stations through the PS3 media server, Please share! I cant figure that part out yet. Any suggestions or points to the right direction would be greatly appreciated.

I **found** a solution to stream external MP3 and AAC SHOUTcast internet radio stations.

Solution: you must use the direct stream URL not the SHOUTcast URL.
Example: SHOUTcast radio station 181.fm - Awesome 80's has a SHOUTcast syntax URL of http://yp.shoutcast.com/sbin/tunein-station.pls?id=196253. This SHOUTcast URL syntax must be messing up the parsing of PMS and its plugins. Instead, you must use the direct URL of the radio station such as: http://108.61.73.119:14000

How to find direct URL of radio station? For SHOUTcast stations I used VLC media player.
1. Went to Shoutcast to choose station to stream using PMS to my PS3.
2. Right mouse select a station's Name/URL and chose 'Copy Shortcut'. The copied URL is in the SHOUTcast syntax
3. Opened up VLC media player and select 'Open Network Stream' under the VCL's 'Media' menu.
4. Paste the copied URL in the "...Network URL" text box. Then select the 'PLAY' button.
5. With the station playing, select the VLC's 'CODEC Information' option under the 'Tools' menu.
6. Locate and use direct URL found in the Location box at lower portion of screen.

Thus, using PMS web.conf I created a simple entry to play and stream. It looks like:
audiostream.Web,Radio=80's,http://108.61.73.119:14000

Not working for me, does it for anyone else? Always get the message "The data is corrupted" when trying to play an audio stream from the net, nor MP3, nor AAC streams, and using the direct url doesn't help either. Though, web video streams do work...

My config: PS3 firmware 4.55, Windows XP SP3, PS3 Media Server 1.90.1, Java RE 7

Yes, still works for me. When I get corrupt data message, this is because the station is off-line or some other issue. Try another station.
