the question could sound trivial, but I'm super new in the Raspberry world. I searched a lot in the internet for this problem, but I wasn't able to find an "easy" solution.

I've a raspi 3 with Raspbian installed and what I want to do is to stream webradio on the raspberry (via aux) and choosing the radio channels via smartphone.

I understand I've to install a software that converts the raspi in a multimedia server and then via IP and port connect an app to it.

I installed mopidy, volumio and kodi. But with no one I was able to set up the system.

Is there a simple package (I'd avoid to compile software if possible) to install via apt?

Someone has faced this problem and has a workflow?

p.s. I tried to set up Kodi but I wasn't able at all to activate PVR add ons. After adding them all of them run forever to 0%.

Thanks to all

  • If you want an easy solution, you have to stick to what someone else already did. If you have an idea of your own, you'll have to implement it yourself. Commented Mar 28, 2019 at 10:01
  • I'll definitely get with an easy solution. But as said I could't find a straightforward walk through.

I haven't tried it, but I think perhaps you can do this with Kodi on the Pi, and a Kodi remote app on the phone, such as Kore.

  • Thanks for the answer. I tried but I have a lot of problems with PVR installation, none if working and adding radio channels.

    That would be useful information to edit into your question, to prevent people making suggestions you have already tried. I don't understand what "none if working and adding radio channels" means, but perhaps the problems you are having can be resolved?

  • Ok solved partially by burning Volumio distro and running it into the raspie. Not able to find alternative apps to the official volumio one, but still working fine
