Vlcradio script does not work

I’ve been trying to load run the installation script for a day now - itt ALWAYS fails, and with a different error every time. Is there a list of manual instructions anywhere that I can try following

Poke around here, https://github.com/pimoroni/phat-beat/tree/master/projects/vlc-radio and you might find the info your looking for. Or maybe here, https://learn.pimoroni.com/tutorial/sandyj/internet-radio-on-your-pirate-radio

What version of Raspbian are you running and what sound hardware are you using?

thanks, I found those. I’m actually trying to get the kit from Pimoroni loaded and am using rasbian Jessie Lite which I have upgraded and updated before trying to run the script


The installer now works with Stretch, which is what I’m running. I’m running the full Stretch, I just set it to boot to command line. Volume is set to max on first boot up, it was for me anyway, so just be aware of that. If you have anybody sleeping etc you may want to unplug your speaker. ;)

ok thanks - I guess that I’ll try stretch then

re-loaded the image, upgraded everything and it loaded fine - very strange, but thanks for ll the help


The changes made to get it to work in Stretch may have broken something in Jessie. There were some fixes for issues rolled in too. There used to be a loud pop sound when changing channels that was fixed.
