I’m new to Volumio, discovered it last weekend… I loaded up the Beta 1.2, and had a go at adding some of my favorite stations to the playlist. I didn’t have a lot of luck until I updated mpd to 0.18.9. After this update, I’ve found that some streams that wouldn’t play at all before, play ok now… Overall, some are very reliable, and others, not so much… Can’t really understand why, or figure out what needs improvement…
There are a couple I’m really interested in that work initially, but crap out after a few minutes. They work fine with mplayer, so I don’t think the stream is suspect. I wonder if I could get some of you guys to put these in your players and see if they work ok for you? Playlists follow below. Let me know if these will play reliably for you.
I’m using a RPi, and a generic USB sound device. No other devices attached.
