@Guybrusssh: python3.7 is now the default python but pyradio was deployed under v3.6 so the package cannot be found. Remove pyradio-git and reinstall. If you used an aur tool like pikaur, make sure you clear its cache before reinstalling otherwise the old install into python3.6 will still be used.

Here I am again :)

I've got an update for the man page, pyradio.1

Here it is:

pyradio \- a console based Internet radio player

\fBpyradio\fR [path/to/]stations.csv

.B pyradio
is a command line internet radio player. 
It will use one of the following players: mpv, mplayer or vlc, detected in that order.
If mpv is detected, socat is required too.
It is possible to use 
a custom stations list in ~/.pyradio/stations.csv.
If custom stations list is missing, \fBpyradio\fR would use a 
default one.

@sng: Thanks. Optdepends has been updated.

sng commented on 2018-05-29 15:54

Hi again willemw I have taken some time with this and contributed a couple of features

BTW, I believe you should change the optional packages from

optdepends=('mplayer: as backend' 'vlc: as backend')

to something like

optdepends=('mplayer: as backend' 'vlc: as backend' 'mpv: as backend' 'socat: if mpv is used')

Regards, Spiros

@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.
