GNOME Radio 16 on GNOME 42 Presentation at GUADEC 2022

GNOME Radio 16 is the Public Network Radio Software for Accessing Free World Broadcasts on Internet running on GNOME 42.

GNOME Radio 16 is available with Hawaii Public Radio (NPR) and 62 British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) live audio broadcasts for GNOME 42.

The latest GNOME Radio 16 release during GUADEC 2022 (between July 20-25, 2022) features 200 international radio stations and 110 city map markers around the world, including National Public Radio, 62 BBC radio stations broadcasting live from United Kingdom and 4 SomaFM radio stations broadcasting live from San Francisco, California. GNOME Radio 16 for GNOME 42 is developed on the GNOME 42 desktop platform with GNOME Maps, GeoClue, libchamplain and geocode-lib and it requires at least GTK+ 3.0 and GStreamer 1.0 for audio playback.

8 years before GNOME 43 occured I began writing GNOME Internet Radio Locator for GNOME 2 between 2014-2017 and 5 more years GNOME 3, after Norwegian Broadcasting Corporation (NRK) shut down its FM broadcasts. In 2022 we are going to build GNOME 43 support for further international as well as Norwegian radio stations with help from the GStreamer and the GNOME community.

Here is some of the newly written code for GNOME 43 in the new GNOME Radio 42 application org.gnome.Radio:

#include <gst/player/player.h> #include <gtk/gtk.h> static void activate(GtkApplication * app, gpointer user_data) { GtkWidget *window; GstPlayer *player; window = gtk_application_window_new(app); gtk_window_set_application (GTK_WINDOW(window), GTK_APPLICATION(app)); gtk_window_set_title(GTK_WINDOW(window), "Radio"); gtk_window_set_default_size(GTK_WINDOW(window), 800, 600); gtk_widget_show(window); player = gst_player_new (NULL, gst_player_g_main_context_signal_dispatcher_new(NULL)); gst_player_set_uri (GST_PLAYER (player), ""); gst_player_play (GST_PLAYER (player)); } int main(int argc, char **argv) { GtkApplication *app; int status; gst_init(&argc, &argv); gst_init(NULL, NULL); app = gtk_application_new("org.gnome.Radio", G_APPLICATION_FLAGS_NONE); g_signal_connect(app, "activate", G_CALLBACK(activate), NULL); status = g_application_run(G_APPLICATION(app), argc, argv); g_object_unref(app); return status; }

In 2018 I began writing my Bachelor of Science thesis in Electrical Engineering about GNOME Radio and GNOME Internet Radio Locator and on June 24, 2020 I published my Bachelor thesis on GNOME Radio; gnome-radio-16.0.43 and gnome-internet-radio-locator-12.6.0, at Oslo Metropolitan University and University of Oslo in Norway.
