Integrate an internet radio player into the media app to listen to streaming radios. There should be the ability to search for stations, to set them as favorites and to enter the streaming address manually.

An internet radio address can be added as normal playlist. Just download any playlist, tracker will add them automagically to your media :-)

oh, never tried that, thanks!

Yes, but what is still missing is to UI where user can choose between the stations and choose favorites. That was the issue in original question.

What Zandi thinks about that?

@LaruX: What you mean is something like a portal or a web site, where all the links to the stations are assembled and the user can choose from?

Now i tried to do somethings with the playlists. but I can't play internet radio stations with a normal link to the stream. @LaruX is right. I ment an internet radio player where you can search and choose a Station like in any internet radio player app. ..but integrated in the jolla media app.

@ibins, Yes I mean. N900 had some kind of integration with mediaplayer, but collection of the stations wasn't quite good. However, N9 had several individual apps (internet radio, ip-radio) with good station coverage.

I think that integration in N900 might be quite good example.

QuickRadio for Sailfish by Felix Woxstrom "is a simple internet radio player without the fuzz"

It does not come with any stations, but you can add them if you know the URL. I tested and seems to work pretty good.

You can find the server/port, etc using netstat or some snooping utilities while playing it on your computer.

Update: Forgot to mention that the QuickRadio Sailfish App is available in Jolla Store

One work-around until native app is being ported from N9 or created from the scratch is Tune-in client for Android: http://tunein.com/

You can download tune-in from aptoide/play etc. stores or you can also download it as standalone package.

nice, Tunein on android works like a charm, not having play on jolla I never looked for it

This is just an bare idea, but if it would be actually implemented, it could be help for your question: https://together.jolla.com/question/20961/idea-all-in-one-jolla-media-player/
