Start stream with api


Recommended Posts

I need help to start an specific stream via api. My solution so far has been to create a playlist with a single stream and then invoke the playlist via api, but it is not an optimal solution. I've been able to open "a random stream" via the following uri: content://com.maxmpz.audioplayer.data/stream_files?shs=1 but haven't been able to play a specific one.

Is there a way via api to achieve what I'm looking for?

Is stream already imported (or otherwise exists) in Poweramp, or is it new stream uri each time. Poweramp automatically handles incoming m3u(8) uris by importing and playing them.

You can directly feed stream URLs (e.g. http://...) to Poweramp via PowerampAPI.Commands.OPEN_TO_PLAY:

Thanks a lot Max, as always Poweramp is equipped with everything. The streams are already imported, I was wondering if there is an internal uri to call.

I'm posting here the Tasker intent action to play an URL in case this helps anybody (kudos autormali from reddit):

Play Stream Poweramp (978)

A1: Send Intent



Mime Type:

Data:url here
