I have updated to 0.5 (and double checked by examining the source code) and I don't see any cover art trying with Radio Paradise and a few of the default stations you supplied.

While I admit it isn't generic, for Radio Paradise at least they publish http://legacy.radioparadise.com/xml/now.xml which contains useful information on the current song and a link to the artwork. Could this be used / parsed ?

I think it would be useful if:
1. It had the version of the plugin somewhere (maybe in the configuration page?)
2. And/or : the ability to turn on debug output to e.g. .xsession-errors so we can figure out what isn't working.

Thank you for your feedback. The lastfm API is now used for image search and recognition. If the api does not find an artist or song, placeholder is displayed. I'll try to make an implementation specifically for radio paradise using the xml link you provided. Be patient, I'll try to do it next week.

Nice! Is the sourcecode anywhere (github?)

What would be *very* cool, is for stations like Radio Paradise, to display the cover art in the tool tip (See http://moodeaudio.org/forum/showthread.php?tid=237 ) for references.

It doesn't seem to integrate with KDE's "Now Playing" widget?

Thanks for the feedback. In my spare time, I'll look at how to do the integration with the widget "Now playing" and the implementation of the display cover. I haven't uploaded the source code to the repository yet, but you can open it directly from /home/.local/share/plasma/plasmoids/org.kde.plasma.advancedradio/

Thanks for your quick reply. However, since the plasmoid itself is running I would have to start off a certain stream via the terminal. Unfortunately I do not know the appropriate command. Could you help me with this?

Sorry, mx mistake. I obviously added streams that produced errors when I triede to open them in the terminal using 'mplayer'. All other stations work fine. Issue solved.

Hi @driglu4it .
I have reinstalled my system (kde neon 20.05) and the applet doesn't work anymore. If click on "play", it is displayed "buffering" and nothing append. If I go in the settings under the search menu, I have the list of radios but with "Server status: error" in the description.
What can I do to debug that?

No it's not related to your widget. I wrote a post on kde forum about that. Now I start jackd with the session and it's ok.

Unfortunately this is not a temporary problem. This error is displayed on all radio stations.
With Kubuntu 20.04 the player works correctly. With Debian Testing this error occurs.

Appimages

To install any downloaded Appimage via GUI, use this tool AppImagelauncher.

To install Appimages from Appimagehub via CLI use appimage-cli-tool.
This allows you to e.g. search appimages with "app search xyz" and install any appimage via command "app install #id".

If you are a developer who is interested to easily build appimages from your code repo, read the guide here.
