@sng: Also make sure to update pyradio-git to the latest commit by reinstalling it.

Hi willemw, thanks for the answer

Well, there seems to be something strange going on...

I got the program installed using "sudo pip install pyradio" and i noticed that the station list is different than the one i get when installing through "yaort pyradio-git". Strange?

Also i noticed that using the "pip version" i don't get the error i mentioned in my previous message. Playback starts ok, no sound though - but that's another issue i'm looking into in git issues

Can you have a look?


Ok, it seems two different urls...


pip: [pyradio-0.5.2.tar.gz]

I think it's the same version, but clearly it's a different package...

Seems like an upstream issue. You may want to check the upstream issues and maybe report your issue there.

Issue is MPV related and was recently closed. If you reinstall pyradio-git, you could check if your issue has already been fixed.

Hi all, i get an error when i play a station:

pyradio --play

rm: cannot remove '/tmp/mpvsocket': No such file or dorectory Traceback (most recent call last):



File "/usr/lib/python3.6/site-packages/pyradio/", line 110, in _buildStartOpts

if "not found" not in out[0]:

TypeError: a bytes-like object is required, not 'str'

python --version

Python 3.6.5

After some googling, i made the following change:

File: /usr/lib/python3.6/site-packages/pyradio/

Line: 110

Changed from:

if "not found" not in out[0]:


if "not found" not in str(out[0]):

An now it works!!!

@thoase: Thanks. Fixed (now all Python 3).

You need to have 'python-setuptools' installed to build pyradio-git.
