    Can't play https stream on Squeeze Box UE

    Hi All - Happy New Year

    I try to keep my Squeeze Box UE Radio alive even if the WLAN is working not properly anymore since months, after about 10mins it just breaks. Ok I can live with Ethernet also so far.

    But what is really annoying to me is, that one of my favourite radio channel future generation 93.8 https://www.futuregeneration.net is not possible to play anymore on the box byself. I need to use LMS and the PlugIn ShareTunes2 to select an audio output of an iPhone/iMac to send the music from Safari/Chrome via AirPlay to the Squeeze Box. Ok I am happy that the PlugIn has been shared - thx for the open source dev.- but I basically have to use always a 2nd device.

    Minutes ago I tried to find a ssh syntax to start a stream via the Mac terminal and the jive.bin, but I couldn't figure out how to do it even if the SSH connections works fine and I'm logged in.

    WLAN Radios are not very popular (seems at least to me) and therefore I would like to keep the squeeze box alive. My question would be, is there any way to stream this https website which have no MP3 stream somehow linked? Is there any plugin for the Squeeze Box which could do the job?

    Kind regards, Gustl

    I'm a bit confused as you mention UE and LMS: did you install Squeezebox
    firmware on your UE Radio? What lMS version are you using? With the
    latest LMS 8.1 release you should be able to stream https to your device.

    The URL you give isn't the stream. What exact URL are you trying to play?

    CORRECTION:

    @d6jg:

    Yes you are right. It works via the RadioNet plugin. But what does this mean for the box? Is there a chance to run the stream without the LMS?

    -----------------------

    @mherger:
    Sorry for not being precise. Yes the UE is running Squeezebox Radio. The client is visible on the LMS interface and I currently use the AirPlay connection to stream the music from Safari to the Squeeze Box. What IMS version? I will paste some information from the LMS - hope you can find your query:

    And yes, you are right, the URL isn't the stream. Using chrome for example to open the website, you have to push the play button to start the stream. Acc. to my opinion, this is the main problem - there isn't a stream URL for a MP3 file.

    If you search for FG93.7 or .8 you find entries but these are historical streams which can be accessed but did you try to listen to the current stream?

    The playable URL from the web site is https://fg-live.ercdn.net/tdvidstream_720p.m3u8

    This is a HLS URL with two streams - audio & video.
    For some reason it seems to be not playable using the PlayHLS - I'll need to look at the stream in more detail to fix this.

    Strange thing, I get audio (with crackles) & video in browser but I get no audio with either VLC or ffplay - so it is an unusual HLS stream

    Yes I could start running the stream via mentioned plugin. Thank you for the hint. But what does this mean for my "problem" only using the box for the stream without LMS?

    That is interesting. I was also looking for a more precise url like what you quoted. May I ask you please how you figured out this url?

    By the way - as an 50 years old techno kid from Berlin I can really recommend this channel for deep house/techno sessions. They also celebrate party sessions on Friday/Saturday like famous channels in Germany (Radio Eins, Fritz) did for Techno in the 90s with famous DJs.

    It looks like you are playing via shairtunes though not from RadioNet.
