Topic: Chumby Radio - PC control interface script
I hacked up a script which will allow you to launch and control internet radio on your Chumby
from your PC's web browser. You'll need ssh in, download and install it on the Chumby.
SSH into your chumby (see http://wiki.chumby.com/mediawiki/index. … mby_tricks if you don't know how)
chmod +x radio
On your pc's browser go to
http://<your chumby's ip>/cgi-bin/custom/radio
Bookmark that link for convenience.
Paste in your favorite radio stream then click "Play"
If you don't know of any streams, try one of my favorites, Groove Salad @ SomaFM
I'm not familiar with Flash actionscript, but if it's capable of making a http request, you could write a widget to call this script passing the appropriate parameters through the URL to start and stop the music directly on the Chumby.
