Full Version: Volumio as renderer

I have MinimServer/Streamer running on a Synology NAS and also on an headless Raspberry Pi 3. For a control point I use either Linn Kinsky (always works) or Kazoo (better GUI, but often fails). I have two renderers: an Auralic Aries Mini or another headless Raspberry Pi 3 running Volumio with an attached USB DAC. This streaming file:

#EXTM3U
#EXTINF:-1,[BBC] BBC Radio 3

Works well on the Aries from either implementation of MinimStreamer. It will not play on the Pi running Volumio. Streaming directly from Volumio using a browser window on my desktop works fine. Clearly I am doing something wrong with getting the streaming URL to Volumio.
It looks like this is an MP3 stream. You could try adding the stream type to the playlist entry, as follows:

#EXTM3U
#EXTINF:-1,[BBC;mp3] BBC Radio 3

Works! I should have thought of that. Please accept my apologies for asking a stupid question.
