PyRadio – Command Line Internet Radio Player for Ubuntu

January 18, 2018 — 1 Comment

PyRadio is an open-source curses based internet radio player that runs in command console. The software is implemented in Python, and uses mplayer or VLC for media playback.

The community has recently made the snap package for PyRadio to make it easy to install the tool in Ubuntu 16.04 and higher either via Ubuntu Software:

or by running command in terminal:

snap install pyradio

Since snap app contains most required libraries and dependencies, the installation file is kinda large.

To start the radio player, run command:

pyradio --play

And here are keyboard shortcuts:

  • Up/Down/j/k/PgUp/PgDown Change station selection
  • Enter Play selected station
  • -/+ Change volume
  • m Mute
  • r Select and play a random station
  • g Jump to first station
  • <n>G Jump to n-th station
  • Space Stop/start playing selected station
  • Esc/q Quit
