#1

Hello,

I have just received and assembled my Pirate Radio.
It’s installed with 2017-08-16-raspbian-stretch-lite.img

The installation was ok.
When i reboot, the music start and stop after 1 or 2minutes.
The process VLC stopped.

I try ti use several radio and none of them played for a long time.

the vlc log file contains warning
pi@raspberrypi:/var/run/vlcd $ more vlcd.log

This seems to have cropped up recently with Stretch and I’m not quite sure what’s going on yet. There have been a few other reports of similar crashing problems with VLC, though, so you’re not alone.

You might find it works fine if you switch to Jessie for now: https://downloads.raspberrypi.org/raspbian_lite/images/raspbian_lite-2017-07-05/2017-07-05-raspbian-jessie-lite.zip

I don’t know what’s up in Stretch yet, but I’m looking into it.
