The admin’s of streamlive have changed syntax and made changes to the mobile version of site, now we need a user agent switcher extension to access it. I have another simple workaround which i’m not going to post here, if anyone is interested hit me up on twitter or leave a comment. To re-enable the mobile version of site, install this User Agent Switcher Firefox Add-On and set it to use either Android or iOS #Cat&Mouse
[Update] I am noticing that m.streamlive.to (the mobile version of site) now points to streamlive.to (not mobile). Once you have found your desired stream, in the address bar delete the www and replace with an m.so we get the mobile webpage.
Since the livestreamer plugin for this site is broken, here’s a way to watch all streams from streamlive.to in your favourite media player, firstly click <– hyperlink find a stream you like, click it, you will see a player, right click player and highlight/click ‘copy video location’ like so .. Then open a new tab and paste in the video location URL from your clipboard to the address bar ..
An .m3u8 playlist file will begin downloading, normaly to /tmp, simply open it with your chosen media player [In Firefox preferences you can also set your player as default handler for the mimetypes(MP3 audio) (streamed) (audio/x-mpegurl)M3U8 filertmp
Stream will then begin playing in chosen player automagically]
I have tested this using firefox in Linux and OS X, thats all folks .. another nail in adobe flash coffin.
P.S To have it work in Windows we need to create our own .m3u8 playlist file see this older blog post.
I reckoned it’s about time i posted something here on my neglected corner of teh interwebs, this time ill be harping on about yet another TUI (Text User Interface) application named pyradio, Yes it’s python and yes it’s a radio (remember those ?). Sure we could write shell aliases to fire up our favourite radio stations/streams, however pyradio will save you the time and bother. Get it here by typing/pasting
git clone https://github.com/coderholic/pyradio.git
sudo python setup.py install
if that sounds too much like hard work you may be able to find it in your favourite repository
<—-Here’s what it looks like ..
If pyradio is for you and you have gone and installed it then i have taken the time to go and dig out some radio stream URL’s for you to add to the stations.csv file, which can be found in
should your distro be on an older version of python, maybe 2.7 then cd to
you get the gist, paste the contents of Radio Stations into the stations.csv file (you will need elevated priviliges to write to this directory).
I also edited the player.py file from the above directory and changed line 101 from mplayer to the much prefered mpv media player, for good measure i edited the radio.py file to change the default curses colours.
That’s all folks, Thanks for dropping by.
