Personal Radio

This music service plugin provides Korean radio(KBS, MBC, SBS) and Linn radio. KBS, SBS and MBC are very popular commercial radio station in Korea. Korean radios can’t be added as a Volumio webradio because the streaming URL have one time access token. If you interested in Korean radio, you can enjoy this plugin.

There are many channels in KBS, SBS and MBC radio. I’ll introduce some of popular radio channels as follows.​

  • KBS1 FM is a classic channel in Korean language
  • KBS2 FM and MBC FM4U channel are a K-pop, Pop music and entertainment in Korean language.
  • KBS World channel designed for an international audience and the radio program consists of K-Pop, news, Korean culture with English or other languages.

Rotary encoder plugin

Volumio 2 plugin to configure two simple rotary encoders.

Platform: Raspberry Pi (but possibly multiple board platforms)
Depends on Node JS onoff

Source : github.com/Saiyato/volumio-rota … der-plugin
File to download : volumio-rotary-encoder-plugin.zip

At this stage I’ve only tested volume control, but since the commands syntax shouldn’t change I trust the rest will work too.
Full testing takes time and I wanted to release early for everyone.
Please note that the plugin emits to the API, so it’s not too responsive, there’s a delay somewhere (Node JS?).

Update [2018-01-18]:
Patched some really nasty bugs last night, it should work ok now.

Update [2018-03-01]:
Merged a PR from diehardsk, which makes the plugin way more reliable.

The plugin enables support for MSL Digital Solutions’ RemotePi boards for Raspberry Pi 4, Pi 3 B+, Pi 3, Pi 2, B+ and B on Volumio.

After activating the plugin the RemotePi board will get signaled as soon as Volumio is shut down via the GUI. This allows the RemotePi board to cut power from the RasPi after the shutdown process has finished.

Further more the plugin detects the signal that is sent by the RemotePi board in case its hardware knob has been pressed or an IR power off signal from a remote control has been received. The plugin then initiates the shutdown of Volumio and sends a signal back to the RemotePi. This allows the board to detect when Volumio’s shutdown process has finished and cut the power afterwards.

The plugin configures Volumio to load the necessary overlay for the IR receiver of the RemotePi board. By default the plugin uses GPIO18 for the IR receiver. But as the hardware of RemotePi boards can be modified to use GPIO17 instead the plugin allows to set up the configuration accordingly.

Note: The plugin will not install and setup LIRC! This can be achieved by installing the IR remote controller plugin. Pay attention to get at least version 1.2.0 of the IR remote controller plugin. Earlier versions will override the gpio_in_pin setting with GPIO25.

The plugin installs and allows to configure a miniDLNA (aka ReadyMedia) server.

Through Volumio’s UI the plugin provides access to all configuration options of the miniDLNA server (except “user to run as” which is set to “volumio”). Currently the options of miniDLNA version 1.1.2 (on Volumio 2) and version 1.2.1 (on Volumio 3) are supported.

The plugin also features a rescan button that allows to force a rescan of all media directories for new media files.

Volumio version: 2 and 3

Status: stable on Raspberry Pi and x86 (probably also works on other platforms as long as the minidlna package is available)

Replacement for former Plugin ‘Autoplay’. I reimplemented it with another lib underneath, since many people reported issues.

Starts playing the last entry in the queue after rebooting volumio.
This is a “must have” for webradios without a modern frontend (pin.it/uVFOjQ6).

You just need to install and enable the plugin.

Onkyo Controller

A simple plugin that is able to turn an Onkyo receiver on the network on and off when playback begins and ends using eISCP.


  • Automatically or manually detect compatible Onkyo receivers on the network .
  • Send a power on or power off command to an Onkyo receiver when Volumio playback begins or ends.
  • Set the volume on the receiver to a set value when Volumio playback begins.
  • Set the receiver channel on playback beginning.
  • Delay the power off command to the receiver (to allow for pausing music without shutting down).

Platform: Raspberry Pi; tested on 2 and Zero W. It should be platform agnostic though.

Tested with an Onkyo CR-N755 receiver, but should be fine with any receiver that can use the Onkyo remote app.

Installable through volumio plugins menu, or see Github for manual installation.

Radio Paradise Plugin

The Radio Paradise plugin allows to play their streams - including the FLAC version - within volumio. radioparadise.com is a commercial-free listener-sponsored Internet radio station that identifies itself as an “eclectic online rock radio” station. It plays different styles of pop and rock music, but occasionally other genres from jazz to classical to electronic music and world music.


  • listening to normal streams in different quality (mp3 and aac)
  • listening to the flac version
  • metadata for flac (cover, artist, title)
  • pause/resume

Raspberry Pi; tested on 3 and Zero W. It should be platform agnostic though.

Installable through volumio plugins menu, or see Github for manual installation.

Pandora Plugin

Plugin that connects to the Pandora service.

Users can listen to their existing Pandora stations. Users can skip tracks they don’t like.
Thumbs up / Thumbs down is currently not supported. If elements can be added somehow to the GUI, this may change in the future.
Cover art and song information is displayed in the playback window.

The code is currently available here. Instructions for installation are on that page.

A pull request has been made and has been awaiting approval for a few months now. I think it’s ready for production, but of course that’s not up to me.

The plugin is powered by the Anesidora Node JS library (uses the Unofficial Pandora API).

@lostmyshape helped me with coding suggestions, and @srhamil added a fix that helps with an intermittent connectivity issue.

Thanks to the Volumio developers for making the project open and allowing for outside developers like myself to join in. I have learned a lot about Javascript and Node JS while doing this project. I hope to try another plugin in the future.

You can reach me here on the forum, my username is truckershitch. All messages are welcome. I will try to answer them in a timely fashion. For some reason, I do not get instant notifications when I get a message or on the forums, so I have to check manually.

Another last.fm scrobbler - I can’t get the lastfm one to work consistently.
This only scrobbles, there’s no last.fm user interface. I might look into adding that as a separat plugin later.

I know very little javascript and node, so I’m learning as i walk.
It’s pretty stable, so I will share.
