How to add radio streams to Volumio?

I have been using Volumio for years now and it has been trouble free. Recently, the SD card from where Volumio is running died so I had to get new one and install latest version. Now, I do not know how to add my radio streams. \volumio doesn’t work and when I go by IP address, I get three folders (all empty):

Internal Storage

There is no WebRadio folder which is mentioned in the FAQ.

Any ideas?

The easiest way is to add them manually in the UI

stored in /data/favourites/my-web-radio

Some older browsers (like Opera 12.18) don’t show the icon or don’t react on it.

Thanks guys. I have added the stations thru web interface.

One more question: How do I connect to Volumio to make a copy of all the stations I just added? I know I can create image of the whole SD card but I would like to grab the files with stations. As I mentioned before, when I connect to Volumio, I only get “Internal Storage”, “NAS” and “USB” folders. All of them are empty. I have tried from Mac and Windows with the same results.

webradio stations are stored in text file \data\favourites\my-web-radio. Just need to copy or edit that one file using any editor.

I understand, but how do I access this file? Going to \volumio or \ip_address doesn’t show \data\ folder.

You can ‘ssh’ into Volumio (how to enable ssh), or use the data backup plugin.

Or download WinSCP.exe and copy the map \data\favourites to your PC

I use FileZilla. Very simple to setup & use. Screen cap attached. FWIW in case its useful info I use another program FreeFileSync to synchronize my music library from PC to a Volumio USB flash drive using SFTP too.
