now that last.fm has become unavailable for me (the plague upon them!), what can i listen to?

i have a particular interest in listening apps, so i don't have to use my browser.
scrobbling is a good thing but not a must for me.

i have problems getting libre.fm to work - i can't get any kind of smooth radio mix experience even from within the browser, and



there seem to be no working desktop apps.
is libre.fm still an alpha project???

radiotray offers some nice radio stations.

i tried streamtuner2 but it doesn't do anything. does anybody have experience with it? looks ver complex.

or generally just tips for good radio stations. (i like sonic universe, it's one of the radiotray defaults). preferably 100% music, no branding, no ads please.

what other (free) services make use of the scrobbling concept?

of course if someone knows any tips/hacks for last.fm, i'd be delighted to hear  devil

streamtuner2 works for me. Make sure to set the media player in preferences (audacious works for me, i tried rhythmbox and it failed)

tunapie is another client for radio.

Both, tunapie and streamtuner2, use a music-player to play the music, so you only need to configure that player to use libre.fm for scrobbling.

vagalume is a gui client for libre.fm, zomg is a cli client (the radios there are interesting, but sure underground).
The only thing i get running in vagalume is: menu->Play Music-> tagged as (and often it fails too).

rhythmbox has a few interesting plugins, one being support for magnatune (other players sure have it too, but i know that rhythmbox has it for sure).

I mainly play music from my local collection and sometimes from youtube (say via minitube). Hence it migth be i misunderstood the question or posted something which is wrong.

Re: internet radio with or without scrobbling - what to listen to?

re: somafm (this may seem obvious, sorry)...

To avoid always opening a browser from my computer, I go to the bottom of the station's page and click on "Alternative stream links" (example, groovesalad)...
http://somafm.com/groovesalad/directstreamlinks.html

I open gnome-mplayer, Ctrl+l and paste the first url on that list, http://somafm.com/groovesalad.pls , then I view the playlist in gnome-mplayer and save it as Groovesalad to ~/Music (or whatever you want) and then I can "Open with... gnome-mplayer (or just hit Enter since that's my default for .pls files). I use gnome-mplayer because it has a nice interface, it gives me notifications on track changes (via whatever Gnome's notification daemon is called, yes, I use Gnome2 currently) and it displays a lot of album art automatically. The result...
Screenshot.jpg

For my android, I use Deadbeef for playlists, so when I open Groovesalad in Dolphin it starts playing in Deadbeef, and it stays as the default playlist unless I use Deadbeef for something else. Damn if I can figure out how to save multiple playlists in Deadbeef mobile. Somafm also has a mobile app available now, if you want to spend cash.

Better suggestions are welcome.

Re: internet radio with or without scrobbling - what to listen to?

^ this is exactly how i like to use them, except i use mocp.

@ivanovnegro, the progarchives look interesting, is it possible to use their own playlists with mocp instead of the web page built in player?

@hhh: same for freshradio?

i guess i should give streamtuner another try.

^I've only listened to freshradio (I love the way they say that in their stupid synth-pop bumper) on my phone via WinAmp. I'll check it out now and post back, assuming I don't die first from this woodka hangover I'm nursing.  cry  Whatever doesn't kill you makes you stronger, said the dead guy.

Re: internet radio with or without scrobbling - what to listen to?

Checking... blah blah blah... hangover... blah blah blah...

Well, their website's in French, their player doesn't seem to be working, et je ne parles pas Francais (Steve Martin; "Aagh! I spoke French!), but the link from Shoutcast is giving me a 128k stream in gnome-mplayer, with some album art. Link saved and playing!

I love how eclectic that station is. They've gone from Zombies to Daughter to Mama Cass Elliot to The Envy Corps. Sweetness.

Re: internet radio with or without scrobbling - what to listen to?

@hhh: oh yeah, and what a straight french-style take-off with jamiroquai. thanks.
btw, you ever heard a french dj saying eurythmics?

@ivantheblack: maybe it's me being stupid, the website is a bit cluttered and no big "listen now" buttons, but where's the link to a radio *.pls?
i mean there's a few links to other progrock radio stations, that's fine. i'm just not quite sure if the progarchives themselves offer radio? ...i really like my dose of king crimson every now and then.

..and i always like to listen through my fav media player, independent of web browser clutter.

Re: internet radio with or without scrobbling - what to listen to?

I use radiotray as my player or sometimes I stream from clementine, both work very well. For European stations I use http://www.listenlive.eu/ which has a massive selection.

No, but when I do life will finally have meaning to it.Thanks man, way to put a smile on my face first thing in the morning. Seriously laughing my freaking ass off here.

@KrunchTime, I've been waiting for someone to come up with a cool terminal color scheme for it (I can't be bothered, I'm all about the GUI thesse days, except for apt-get/dpkg, ). Thanks for noticing. Grab it...

Re: internet radio with or without scrobbling - what to listen to?

soma.fm have a few new stations since this thread started...
most notably Iceland Airwaves. been listening to it the whole day...

streamtuner works, too. i had to drop a few plugins, also makes it start faster. there's also tv, and man, some really trashy stuff. i mean all kinds. weird.
also i found an update to streamtuner's live365 plugin from this thread.

i also found fnoob - i'm not quite sure what to make of it, but i've had blissful hours with their ambient channel. and all stations are downloadable as playlists.

almost forgot - johnraff updated his shoutcast console player.

Re: internet radio with or without scrobbling - what to listen to?

My favorite station:

WFMU. They're a publically owned station out of the NYC area, and they're probably the longest running freeform radiostations. If you like college radio, then this station is for you, as they're like the best College Station in the galaxy. --You will hear stuff on here that you have probably never heard before, and you will probably like most of it.

Check out their stream, here

yes, i have it in my playlist folder. sometimes i tune in but there's just too many guys who like to hear themselves talk.
once they get around to actually playing sth it's usually quite good ;-)
