my favourite radio stations – a link collection for using on the go/mobile

why this?

when egofm (my favourite german radio stations) stopped supporting my mobile operating system (ios 5) with their app i looked for the direct link to their stream. i was using direct links for my other favourite radio station somafm for several years and thus created a site with direct links to the streams of both radio stations for easy access on the go using my mobile (iphone). after testing the links with other operating systems i noticed that you need an app to playback the streams on android or windows phone .. so no guarantee that it works on any other operating system out of the box …

for whom?

i originally created it for my private use only. but as some friends asked for the link i thought i could as well make it public.

the link

howto playback

iphone

using the iphone the streams are played with no additional software needed.

windows phone (8 or later)

when you tap on one of the links you will be presented with a selection of apps that are supposed to be able to play those streams. install one of them and give it a try (i had issues with egofm lately .. dunno what’s wrong there).

android

as i don’t own an android device this is only a suggestion/wild guess as result of some google searches. there is an app named servestream which is said to support the streams.

enjoy the music!

Iphone Installation To Sync Music With Rhythmbox And Enable Tethering


i experienced an issue that the iphone won’t tether when i connect it the first time …
i have to plug it in ..
wait for it beeing mounted ..
remove the usb cable ..
and plug it in again …
that way tethering works …

installing the needed packages for sync and tether

to install iphone drivers you first have to add a new repository and update all by typing

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:pmcenery/ppa
sudo aptitude update

then install the following packages

sudo aptitude install gvfs ipheth-dkms ipheth-utils libimobiledevice-dev libimobiledevice-utils

tethering with usb

connect the iphone with tethering enabled you will get a new device eth1

syncing music

to sync music i use rhythmbox

problem of dissappearing device

when i first started rhythmbox with the iphone connected it showed the iphone listed under “devices” for like 2 seconds and then it disappeared

to fix that do the following else continue to “preparing to sync”

  • close rhythmbox
  • open your home folder and show hidden folders/files by pressing “CTRL + H”
  • navigate to .gconf/apps/rhythmbox/state/ipod and delete the file “%gconf.xml”
  • start rhythmbox

preparing to sync

  • created a new playlist “iPhoneSync”
  • added all the music i want onto my iphone and then
  • rightclick the iphone-symbol in rhythmbox listed under “devices” and select “properties”
  • select the tab “sync” and the playlist i just created

close that window and you may now sync the iphone by right-clicking it and select “sync with library”
