HI Everyone,

I have scrolled through the forums and I was wondering is it possible to create an add on for just one radio station 'Sonic Stream', with the stream addy http://cloudrad.io/sonicstream/listen.pls

Could someone point me in the right direction to ask a developer to create this addon.



thanks
Just create a text file with the extension .strm with the URL in it, then put the file somewhere that you can browse to it in Kodi.

Or (gratuitous plug alert)
Using my Super Favourites addon (under programs in official repo)

Start up Super Favourites.
Open context menu
Select Create New Manual Entry
Give it a name
Select PlayMedia type
Type in the URL
Job done
(you can then add the item back to Kodi favourites if you want)
HI Spoyser,

Thanks that works Smile

I would really like if an addon could be developed so that other users can use it too.

Give me 5 minutes

Here you go, it is extremely basic but it does the job. It doesn't really justify being an addon, but since you asked...

If anyone fancies making some artwork I'll happily add it.

Do you know of any other station hosted there, it might be worth making a more generic cloudrad.io addon
Thanks Spoyser Smile

What dimensions for the artwork?

256x256 for Icon

I got your email thanks. Will get it sorted for you.
Thank you Smile

Much appreciated
Added artwork, also changed it to be a script rather than an addon (doesn't open an empty list when you select it), and updated the description in addon.xml

Might be worth submitting it to the official kodi repo
thanks much appreciated will do Smile
