Chumby streams your favorite internet radio station

Want to stream internet radio to your chumby? Type its URL on the chumby’s on-screen keyboard:Add a stream URL with the chumby's on-screen keyboard

Or choose from preloaded audio streams:
Radio Free Chumby

Chumby can play music and podcasts from:

  • iPod
  • SHOUTcast
  • Mediafly
  • Radio Free Chumby
  • My Streams
  • SlimServer
  • My Music Files (USB)

with beta control panel 2.6.54.

‘My Streams’, automatic rebuffering, and screen art are new since my last report.

Chumby is getting better fast. In November, when I got my Chumby, you could play music off an iPod, or use btplay at the command line to stream audio from any URL. The beta control panel makes this easier–and lets your chumby play widgets while you listen to music.

  1. Fyi… this is still in Alpha (but functional)… you can personalize the podcasts on your Chumby’s Mediafly Channels. Here is a link that describes how:

  2. The post says you can “use btplay at the command line to stream audio from any URL.” Is this really true, or must the URL be one that ends in “.MP3”. Most of the URLs with radio I want start with “mms://” or end with “.asf” or “.asx”. Can Chumby now get these streams?

  3. Do you have to pay a monthly fee if you own the Chumby?
