This script add a list of 195+ Portuguese-regional-and-national online radios into Amarok

This list is now focused in both regional/local and national radios


+++++++++++ Quest Journal ++++++++++

Endorsed by the efforths of Tijolo Azul, the script is about to be illustrated with images in a very near future!!

Yes, WE are going "colorfull", and YOU have a word to say about it - jump into the blog and give your best aesthetic contribution, decisions will be taken

+++++++++++ ++++++++++++++ ++++++++++


If you know of an online radio which you would like to see included (either local/regional or big-mainstream), please send me an email, specifying:
RadioName
RadioDescription
RadioStreamUrl

Finally, I wish to bring attention to a fantastic project called "ROLI Project"[1] which aims to officialy support the broadcasting of local/regional radios through internet.
I have no relation to this project, neither they have with me, but I may say for myself that they are making a stupendous job.

Why don't you make this a more generic script and add all the Portuguese radios (regional and national).

Hi nevess7,

Before even thinkint about the script, I was googling around and found this website:
http://www.radios.pt
which contains mms:// links to all the local/regional radios of the list (in fact, it's the site which provides the streaming for all those radios) and I though it was very interesting - to have such a vast list of online radios organized, available, and streamed with mms://

So I started to look into the spanish-amarok-script (which is very cool) and decided that it was worth a try, to make our own portuguese radio-stations script, and started to use the list of radios of the previous site

I also searched for the bigger-mainstream radios, such as Antena3, Radio Comercial, TSF, but I didn't found any list where the streams of those radios were available as
mms:// or .m3u .pls...
As searching manually for the URLs of each single national radio would have dis-motivated me, I launched the first version of the script with "just" the regional/local


And so, we got here, with many-many local/regional radios, but still no mainstream national radios

I hope that with time and collaboration from everyone :) we can make the list of the national radios and their URL, and join them to the script into a special category like "Radios Nacionais"


If you have urls to any portuguese radio which you would like to see included


So, the fact that for now there are no national radios has no ideology-philosophy behind, it just turned out difficult to get a list of the national radios as well organized as that of regional

I understand your idea. I hope you haven't understand my comment as criticism, it was a sugestion.

After a quick search in google I have found a page with some links to Portuguese online radios. I think some are regional and other are national radios.

Hope this can help.

Nevess7, I've updated the script to version 0.22 - now it has also a list of some national radios, and also some more interesting/recomended radios...

Hope it gives good hours of music :)

Hi neves

I've seen your comment a day or two ago, but I've been busy since then

I have checked out those sites, and they have very interesting contents of national and main-stream radios... maybe too much radios :)

I'll try to search in internet and see if I can get a list of the 15-20 most famous national ones, and then go to the pages you gave me to get some URLs

keep in touch :) it's good to see someones on the other side :)

Hi
I dont have Amarok 2 because i still dont get it how to install with the backports thing (im with Debian Lenny) :-(
Could this script work with Amarok 1.4 too or could it be changed so it could work ? I would love to have all those portuguese radios in Amarok.
Thanks for your reply.

Hello caracol,

I'm running Kubuntu 9.04 so I can't have Amarok 1.4 installed, as I already have the Amarok 2...

Honestly I didn't knew what was an Amarok script until yesterday when I started to read and make it, so I learned enough to be able to adapt an already existing radios-script to portuguese :)

That said, I would like to help you, but without having the Amarok 1.4 for testing it would be impossible.

However, I downloaded a Amarok 1.4 script (which is just an xml file, compressed with tar.gz) and read the XML, and the contents of it are very clead... so I tried to adapt the radios info I have into the XML structure...

...and here we go: we have a "untested" version of the Radios-Portuguesas script for Amarok 1.4 :) !!!!

I did not uploaded it into kde-apps as it is untested, so it would not be fair, but I reale here the link to where you can download it:
http://www.megaupload.com/?d=Z259LNOH

After downloading install it and cross your finger... it should work, but if it doesnt work then:
- have a peek at the XML file - you will see that is very easy to understand
- run amarok from command line, with the parameter -d to show debug info (I guess it will be similar to Amarok2 command: "amarok -d")
- If the amarok script has errors, then in the console debug info, there should be some indication of the line of the script were the errors lie...
- and try to correct them (as I said, XML are easy)

Don't get scared if it seems complicated, in fact it isn't (after all you have Debian, so you were asking for an interesting ride :) )

Tell me what happened, I'm ansious to know :)

Sorry but... er... how do i install this ? Tryed to run amarop from konsole with -d option, but i get:
$ amarok -d
Amarok: [Loader] Starting amarokapp..
Amarok: [Loader] Don't run gdb, valgrind, etc. against this binary! Use amarokapp.
amarokapp: Opción desconocida '-d'.
amarokapp: Use --help para obtener una lista de las opciones disponibles en la línea de órdenes.
yomismo@debian:~$ amarok --help
Modo de uso: amarokapp [opciones-Qt] [opciones-KDE] [URL(s)]

if i run amarokpp --help i dont see any debug option....
am i missing something obvious here ?

Ok, got it to work.
This is how i did if it helps anyone:
-Downloaded, extracted the tar.gz, and copied into /home/my_username/.kde/share/apps/amarok
-renamed file name to streambrowser_save.xml because there was another file with the same name, but almost empty
-executed amarok and after searching google found that it was added into my playlist... just scrool down and there it is in the radios list
Tried it with some of the radios and it works !
Thank you again !! Now you could post this script onto the amarok 1.4 scripts section so anyone can get it if they want...
I'll make a post on my blog soon about this script... blog is in portuguese

Very well done caracol, I'm glad it worked!!! As you can see, it is easy to change the XML file to add more stations :)


I'm adding now the "Radio Comercial" stream you gave to the main Amarok2.0 script

Thanks and see you

Just to add something... added Rádio Comercial (Lisbon 97.4 fm) to the .xml file by adding the line:
<stream name="Rádio Comercial"><url>mms://212.113.177.246/comercialcbr48</url></stream>

in line 114, so it could fit in the Lisbon zone
feel free to add yourselves
cheers !
