Does the Music Shield Work with Streaming Radio Stations?


#1

I’ve been considering this music shield:

To stream music from the following radio station:

Would that work?

Yes you can. We have started some project but never finished it.

The main problem was in buffering the incoming data so you do not get skipping. It was fine at lower quality stations but on high quality there was some skipping. Of course this would run perfect on EMX due to the much larger RAM, needed for buffering.

Maybe make the source public? Interesting project… :slight_smile:

Here is an old project that can be a good starting point http://wiki.tinyclr.com/index.php?title=ShoutcastClient

Thank you very much. ;D

Robert,

I know this is an old post, but did you ever get code running to play music from a streaming radio station on the FEZ music shield?

Thanks.
