UMSP Music Streaming   

Postby herman » Tue Jul 31, 2012 10:29 am


I used so far the
1.02.21-WDLXTV-Live- [flash]

there I had configured the umsp.php for my local shoutcast streaming server (just to stream audio from PC to my audio system)

For testing latest released version I put

1.02.21-EXT3-Boot-Live- [non-flash]

to my HD to work on latest firmware. And everything works ok (for example network shares are found much better then with older version)
But: always when I try to connect to streaming server to play some audio I get the errormessage "file/mdiea type not supported" I should read manual what filetypes are supported.

If I connect with 4.7.3 (settings not changed - wheter on PC server / winamp or WDTV) it works fine.

Any idea why this is not working?

Many thanks in advance :)

1) Moving this to UMSP section.
2) How should we tell you why your umsp.php doesn't work anymore if you don't tell us what's in there???

Hello All,

by chance I found an old treath of mine - which is still not fixed (I had no time to reconfigure my WDTV live longer time now) and I was absent from this froum longer time.

As written above, I have
1.02.21-WDLXTV-Live- [flashed]
1.02.21-EXT3-Boot-Live- [non-flash - load from attached Harddisk]

My umsp.php in /tmp/conf/

( is local networkl IP of my PC with winamp running a local shoucast server)

global $myMediaItems;

# Copy and repeat for multiple items:
$data = array('stream_url' => '');
$dataString = http_build_query($data, 'var_');
$encDataString = htmlentities($dataString);
$myMediaItems[] = array(
'id' => 'umsp://plugins/shoutcast?stream=1',
'parentID' => '0',
'restricted' => '1',
'dc:title' => 'Shoutcast',
'upnp:class' => 'object.item.audioItem',
'res' => '' . $encDataString,
'duration' => '24:00:00', #Attribute of res
'upnp:album_art'=> '',
'protocolInfo' => 'http-get:*:audio/mpeg:*',
# 'upnp:artist' => 'Powered by',
# 'upnp:album' => 'WWW.SHOUTCAST.COM',

When I disconnect the harddisc from WDTV live (so: boot the flashed 1.02.21-WDLXTV-Live- - I can connect to my audiostream (mp3/192k) without problem. If I connect harddisc and boot the 1.02.21-EXT3-Boot-Live- - I get an errormessage that the filetype cannot be opened I should refer to the list of supported formats?

Any idea?

Many thanks in advance,

There have been some changes in UMSP between versions and 0.5.x.x. One change was to remove some legacy UMSP plugins - such as the built-in shoutcast plugin and have them reimplemented as standard plugins (downloadable). As a consequence, you no longer have the file /tmp/umsp-plugins/shoutcast-proxy.php, but if you enable and download (via the web interface -> Addon Manager) the Shoutcast plugin, you should get the proxy in /tmp/umsp-plugins/shoutcast/shoutcast-proxy.php (not the extra shoutcast).

You should change your res URL to
Code: Select all
'res' => '' . $encDataString,

And download the shoutcast plugin, of course.

Let us know how it goes.
