Can you program custom presets on your unit? Most of them allow that, though a few require you to go through TuneIn for managing presets.

TuneIn does not support FLAC, regardless of what hardware you have - but if not, here's the link;

https://stream.radioparadise.com/flacm

If you get glitches at song transitions, drop the "m" from the end of the URL (you'll lose song title displays - that's what causes the glitch).

Greetings from Berlin, KH Kruggel



The issue is most likely related to certificates,  which version of  volumio are you running?

https://community.volumio.org/...     
This post says it stopped working till they upgraded to V 2.916

But the forum thread also directs people to a github project that was deleted.    So not sure what the current status of the project is.

My understanding is Vorbis comments aren't available  with ogg/flac.   
When I looked through the icecast sourcecode,  it had disabled icy-metadata  for all ogg ( more of an oversight,  since it only supported ogg/vorbis originally ) .   And disabled vorbis comments for ogg/flac.   


We are just using this, for our ogg/flac with metadata.
https://www.rocketbroadcaster....

They don't disable  icy-metadata for ogg,   but  didn't  include  support  for the  StreamUrl  tag  which is what  the shoutcast/icecast  streams use to update the coverart url.
( it is sort of a race to see if  icecast  enables  icy-metadata for ogg,  or  rocket streamer  adds  the streamurl tag )

Will look into adding extra headers, for channel logos and such.  

Thanks for the feedback.

 A cpl. things I want to point out though:  1)  C45tro's thread below mentioned embedded cover-art images - I'm not seeing any of these embedded either in ICY metadata or in Vorbis comments OR being fetched by VLC either (however that's not an issue for me as Fauxdacious can and does fetch album-covers for songs based on the artist & title), but was curious how / if this is being embedded (which would make cover-art handling more efficient for me)?  2)  Related to this, from what I can tell, for Ogg/Flac streams, such as these, it appears that there are no Vorbis comments included, and that these have to be at the beginning of the Flac file/stream, so can't change per song?  However, if this is indeed the case, I would like to recommend using them to include the station's name for the TITLE field, the genre, a brief description of the station (ALBUM or ALBUMARTIST field), and perhaps an icon/image for the station ("COVERART" field), as this would be handy.  Reason being is that Fauxdacious uses these values as defaults (when station is not playing, or song-specific tag fields are missing, ie. no album-cover) for other streaming stations / sites it supports (see my StreamFinder module on CPAN (https://metacpan.org/pod/StreamFinder)
for details on how this works, though that module is not applicable here to radioparadise.com.

Anyway, thanks for the great music!!

Yes!  The 320k AAC stream sound quality is truly amazing.    Nothing wrong with the smaller footprint too.   Terrific value.

The other day, RP played a song I know well because I own the music and play it often.  I tried to see if I could tell if there was a difference in sound quality in the 320k AAC stream and the FLAC or 320k MP3 files I rip from the CD.   Within seconds I gave up because I knew I would have to stop everything I was doing, don headphones, carefully focus, etc., in order to discern a difference.

The purpose of FLAC is to provide a bit-perfect copy of the original music in compressed form, together with metadata. The FLAC stream broadcast by PR is not a bit-perfect copy of the original CD track, is it? So if the data is processed at all, AAC seems more than adequate to me. Neither version is going to be exactly like the original.

Yes, they work in the browser but for some reason minimserver on my QNAP do not like them anymore. I responded to your post on the Naim forum. Thank you for the suggestion, the icy8 streams work for me now. Very happy again. :D
