    TuneIn plugin

    I seem to remember a TuneIn plugin used to be available to allow access to Radio if mysqueezebox.com ever disappeared. I did a fresh install of LMS on Windows 10 and TuneIn Radio does not appear under My Apps until I input my mysqueezebox.com credentials. I am sure the TuneIn app used to be an LMS plugin. Am I imagining things? A replacement for mysqueezebox only being available via mysqueezebox doesn't make sense.

    The Internet Radios menu is TuneIn.

    Yes but when there was talk of making LMS independent of mysqueezebox a few years ago I thought a TuneIn plugin was developed. There are threads on the forum that mention it. The weird thing is that running without mysqueezebox removes the TuneIn app from My Apps but Radio remains.

    Are you not simply missing the Tune in URL option in Material?

    No I think I am confused about the time that the Radio menu was disconnected from mysb in LMS 7.8. I have always thought that a TuneIn plugin became available at that point but it appears I am probably wrong as TuneIn only appears in Apps when connected to mysb.

    The Radio plugin would detect whether LMS was running with the
    --nomysqueezebox parameter and would hit TuneIn directly in that case. I
    believe there are a few minor features which will be missing, but the
    transition should be pretty much seamless (don't remember the details).

    We'd face worse challenges if TuneIn stopped supporting us... Could
    somebody please start a plugin using https://api.radio-browser.info/? :-D

    Replacement needed?

    Following a court case last year, TuneIn has - as of last week - blocked listeners in the UK from listening to stations outside the UK (technically stations that have not obtained music licences for the UK).

    There is therefore a need for a TuneIn replacement that doesnĺt have this issue. To avoid TuneInĺs legal problem such a replacement should simply link through to a stream URL and not relay or add to the stream in any way (eg with inserted ads).

    Anyone any ideas?
