    how to add radio stationS to banshee 1.2.1

    Hi,

    I reinstalled banshee from PPA. latest 1.2.1 - 3


    There are no radio stations in 'radio'. How can I add all the popular radio stations that normally come listed under radio with banshee. I know there are because I had them in my previous installation. I don't want to add stations one at a time. Is there a way I can get a list and copy/paste somewhere?

    thanks

    I've got the same problem. I don't know why banshee's developers erased all the radio stations.

    I used to listen to them, so, if anyone could bring us the URLs of those radio stations, I would really appreciate it.

    Greetings from Spain .

    I'm not sure how to get those back... but I just added a radio station from Live365.com.
    1) Go to Live365.com
    2) Look down at the bottom... for "Listening Settings".
    3) For MP3 Player, you'll under the Web Player, "Additional Options". Choose from them, "MP3 Desktop Player".
    4) Save your settings, and then search for a radio station.
    5) Choose one and start it playing... it will let you download a file ... generally something like play.pls. Save this file on your desktop or wherever.
    6) Open the file with gedit or look at it in a terminal. You'll see a long url that looks something like:
    Code:
    File1=http://www.live365.com/play/341355?auth=b926481039488ee73bfb4ea7670f4910-1238162608-unclebuster&tag=live365&token=11c1bcd2be4c1c8809036acb1a13f280-0306270080400000&sid=71.75.251.99-1237357245479&lid=517-usa&from=pls
    7) Just grab the http://.... part after the File1= and copy it.
    8) In Banshee while looking at your stations, click the Add Station icon up top by the volume icon. Fill out the bits you want and put that long URL in for Stream URL. Save. Enjoy.

    In general this should work for any Online Radio station. You just need a way to access the stream URL.

    Hey, Thanks.

    It works. However, I wish there was a file that contained all the URL streams lists so that I didn't have to add one station at a time.

    Is there such a file? or such an "add-on" for banshee. eg. A "live365.com" radios add-on which would prompt you to choose which radio stations to add for you.

    thanks

    There is actually an easier way to add stations to the playlist than to open each file downloaded and copy the url.

    If you just right click the link to download the playlist, and copy link location, then paste that link into banshee, it will add that station like magic.

    The reason I came to this thread, was I recently changed some software that forced me to reinstall banshee, and before I reistalled it, I had an extension to access the shoutcast and various other radio libraries, and now that I have reinstalled bansee, these are no longer there... Was hoping to find out why they dissapeared.

    There is a second option to hear the banshee live365.com. You do not need premium account as your method described above
