Thread: Nts?

  1. #1

    Nts?

    As usual, I'm apparently late to the party. Here's an article from The Guardian about folks who are abandoning various streaming services. One of the suggested alternatives mentioned is NTS. I hadn't heard of them before. Has anybody come up with an extension to add NTS to LMS? See:

    You can access NTS like this:
    Go to Radio (Music sources)
    Tap Search (at bottom)
    Enter "NTS" (without quotation marks)
    You'll be presented with 2 NTS stations and several "Infinite Mixtapes"
    Tap on one. and you'll be presented with the option to Add to Favorites

    As a jazzhead I like the "NTS Expansions" infinite mixtape

    Good mix, but the absence of metadata is a negative. I wonder if Paul Webster would consider adding some NTS channels to the Radio Now Playing plugin. I'll ask in the appropriate thread.
    Usually running latest beta LMS nightly on Raspberry Pi OS with virtual players (Squeezelite and Airplay bridge). Occasionally using SB Radio, Boom or Classic.

    Metadata does not seem to be available to mere listeners, even on the NTS web site. Maybe Supporters get some information about what's playing; I wouldn't know about that. That's been my experience with the Expansions mixtape. I have not tried other streams.
