Features

MediaPortal TV Server supports web streams as channels, this plugin presents a list of available Radio channels which are streamed over the internet and allows users to select which ones to import as Radio channels.

 

The included countries are listed at the end of this page.  Adding additional countries is easy, simply create a plugin compliant xml file and drop it into %ProgramData%\Team MediaPortal\MediaPortal TV Server\WebRadio and it will be picked up the next time you run the plugin. Contact the plugin owner (Cheezey) to get other country xml files included in the plugin distribution.

 

The plugin does not do anything in the normal operation of the TV Server, it is a simple facility to allow you to browse and import Radio channels. The plugin does not allow you to view or edit these channels, use the existing channel editing facility under the Radio Channels section of TV Server setup.
