If you can get Kodi v19 running on your Pi, there is now the Radio Paradise addon for Kodi, with FLAC streams and the slideshow.

LibreELEC only has a beta version of Kodi v19 for the Pi 4, but maybe there are other distributions that support the Pi 3 already.

Volumio has a selection of RP streams by default in the Web Radio section under "Volumio selection".  (inc flac with meta data)

Homie, how have you done this? I just got the FLAC streams favorited on Moode, and it all sounds perfect, but there is no album art or metadata. I ended up running the same radio station on my smart TV's app so I could see what was playing. It's acceptable, but your setup is pretty sexy... 

The good folks in charge of RP were good enough to provide a web service that returns all that metadata, and a link to the album art, for the "now playing" song on every channel.  It's a matter of a Python script, with the requests and pillow modules, to download the metadata and album art, render it to an image, then use an app to push the image to the RPi's framebuffer.  Oh, and python-evdev to get the touchscreen events to change stations...

Or, switch to LMS/Jivelite with piCorePlayer, which I have personally found to me a much better setup than Volumio, Moode, etc., for my needs. LMS knows about the RP web services, and Jivelite / piCorePlayer display the album art without fail.

Found this old thread and would be interested if anyone has any updates on this topic.

Recently bought a 'Raspberry Pi 3' primarily to be able to control my Multi-room amp, but the next step would be to use it to replace my Sonos devices. Hope to be able to play with this over the holidays. Will also explore linking into my KNX solution.

Worst case I guess can just use the webplayer?

 
If you use the web player on the new site, I believe that you will be able to listen to flac files.  As good as it gets.

It was only after this I could hear the dynamic differences between the 96kbps ogg, the 192 mp3 and 320kbps aac streams.   well, listening tests on every stream i could find.   god that 320aac is good.  

using cvlc, mpg321 and ogg123 as players.

do we know how the music is encoded?  bitrates/formats/software etc?

Hi you can also load the Raspberry Pi with Squeezeplug which uses the Logitech Media Software and this lets you load the URL for any Internet Radio stream to your favourites .It also has the Apps Tune In and Shout Cast that enable you to search to all Internet radio stations and is compatable with your add on Dac/Sound Card .

Currently enjoying RP on the Raspberry Pi B+ and Hifiberry DAC+ combo via Volumio v1.55 {#Music} 

Unfortunately RP isn't among the default web radios in the Volumio library. It is however possible to manually include the AAC128.m3u and AAC320.m3u files and both work and sound very good.

Worth trying out if you just want a cheap and not-too-smart RP-player. 

Anyone tried to get the OGG192 running on this rig (Volumio)?

Cheers.
