play radio stream with gstreamer

Posted on

Due to the fact that I started to play with gstreamer I have needed audio video inputs.

as we know the best source for such content is the NET I just search for some radio streams and found two Austrian local senders.

Ö3 => mms://

88.6   =>

For  Ö3 it is easy,  just use on gentoo:

gst-launch-0.10 -v playbin2 uri=mms://

If you have another distribution maybe it is enough gst-launch.

For the 88. 6 is it a little bit difficulty, due to the fact that the link is a multimedia playlist.

  1. get the content of the pls file
curl -s|egrep File
  1. take one of the streams and handover it to the gstreamer
gst-launch-0.10 -v playbin2 uri=

That’s it, have fun 😉
