Radio Stations in Lumin via MinimStreamer

Radio Stations in Lumin via MinimStreamer
Thought I'd mention this for any MinimServer users who also use Lumin as a control point for the DS/M. It may work with Lumin kit too but as I don't have one I can't try it.

Using the new Routing Network Streams in MinimStreamer 0.8.1 you can get MinimStreamer to play radio station streams from entries in a playlist file. I have set up a playlist file with all the radio stations I usually listen to, note these do not have to be in your Tune-In favourites.
I then add this playlist to the queue using Kinsky, then go into Lumin and save the queue as a Lumin playlist. Then if I want to listen to the radio I can do this by recalling the Lumin radio playlist and selecting the radio station I want.
It takes some initial setup but means you don't have to leave Lumin control point to switch between music file a radio stations.

See this post in the MinimServer forum http://forum.minimserver.com/showthread.php?tid=1178 and of course the MinimStreamer user guide http://minimstreamer.com/userguide.html

(you can also transcode the streams to WAV24 etc if you wish)

For reference, here is a sample radio.m3u file. The urls/stream names for many radio stations can be found here http://www.listenlive.eu/index.html

Why have you used the same stream identifier "[Wav]" for all these streams? Each stream should have a unique identifier to allow the stream to be identified and controlled by MinimStreamer.

You need to use a stream identifier to route the stream via MinimStreamer. See this section.

Please describe your complete setup, with details of what is working and what isn't working. Please give as much detail as possible.

Why have you used the same stream identifier "[Wav]" for all these streams? Each stream should have a unique identifier to allow the stream to be identified and controlled by MinimStreamer.

The above appears to work for playing. Should there be a unique identifier for each stream or each type of stream (mp3, AAC, etc)? Could you explain how MinimServer uses the stream ID - is it to identify recordings which I haven't tried?
I will try updating my file to unique IDs to see if it changes anything.

At present, the stream ID is used for recordings and would need to be unique for that purpose. The latest update to MinimStreamer also uses the stream ID to control stream sharing (playing the same network stream concurrently on multiple devices in the home). I am planning to add a check in the near future to ensure uniqueness of stream IDs.
