Added the bitrate to the tooltip for every link in r276. I'm closing this ticket. The fix will be in the next stable release.

Working on Linterna Mágica, I've learned where and what to look for. Also, internally Linterna Mágica is made in such a way, that new websites can be added fast and easy. That is why. :)

You are using the Totem plugin, right? There is a known problem (to me at least) with its JavaScript API for the volume controls. The functions are present, and can be used by Linterna Mágica, but internally, the Totem plugin does not change the volume, and prints some errors. I've examined the source code of the Totem plugin few times, but I was unable to come up with a fix and patch. I haven't reported this in a bug report to Totem developers as well. If you switch to fullscreen, the native Totem buttons should be available and they can used to change the volume.

According to the Icecast2 streaming server, both link 2 and 3 are 32 kbit/s and are fallback links. The labels of the links are kept as short as possible, because long strings are rendered on two (or more) rows. See attachment. There is a tooltip for every label/link that should be visible when the mouse pointer is over it. I can add more information to this tooltip instead.

Great to see what you've been able to do so far. It seems awfully quiet, so I have to turn up my system volume, since the player's controller doesn't change the volume. I think the stream quality names should be changed. I tried to figure out the bit rates my self, and this is what I've come up with:

Link 3 is 31 kbps (MP3).

Link 2 is 32 kbps (MP3). The title is Backup Stream

Link 1 is 64 kbps (MP3)

It seems they stream (mainly) over RTMP. I was unable to make the rtmp stream work with rtmpdump and a version of MPlayer that has rtmp support. However, I was able to extract some useful strings from the swf file that holds the player with the help of swfmill. There were two strings that point to a playlist:

These work fine with stand alone Totem and MPlayer. I was unable to make them play with the Totem browser plugin.

Luckily, these playlists point to an Icecast2 streaming server located at I hardcoded the tree URLs available for PRI on that server in Linterna Mágica. Working code in trunk r272. I've updated the svn builds at the website. PRI is now supported by Linterna Mágica. The support is available only in svn trunk. If you can test the svn build, please do so and report any issues. Thanks.

I have no idea how streaming works, but I'd like to listen to PRI in freedom
