Play feature is broken in Non Root access on termux in Android env.

See original GitHub issue

I’m using a non-rooted android device with termux.
Surprisingly I was able to build PyRadio from source, however upon selecting a station I get roughly 5 seconds of audio and I receive a KeyError & Permission error on /proc directory.

PyRadio clearly is working however fundamentally does not work with my environment.

~/.local/bin $ ./pyradio --play
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/data/data/com.termux/files/usr/lib/python3.9/site-packages/psutil/", line 403, in wrapper
    return cache[key]
KeyError: (('/proc',), frozenset())

During handling of the above exception, another exception occurred:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/data/data/com.termux/files/usr/lib/python3.9/site-packages/psutil/", line 302, in <module>
  File "/data/data/com.termux/files/usr/lib/python3.9/site-packages/psutil/", line 405, in wrapper
    ret = cache[key] = fun(*args, **kwargs)
  File "/data/data/com.termux/files/usr/lib/python3.9/site-packages/psutil/", line 269, in set_scputimes_ntuple
    with open_binary('%s/stat' % procfs_path) as f:
  File "/data/data/com.termux/files/usr/lib/python3.9/site-packages/psutil/", line 711, in open_binary
    return open(fname, "rb", **kwargs)
PermissionError: [Errno 13] Permission denied: '/proc/stat'

For me to make this change I would allow the user to decide if a stream is indeed playing and continue playing it versus what appears to be happening is pyradio checks with /proc to see if the stream is healthy in some way and KeyError on that check… Since I’m building from source this may be a easy adjustment.

Unfortunately vlc (installed from app store) is not accessible from command line ($ vlc) so pyradio wouldn’t be able to call it. I can’t install mplayer either, using apt or pkg.

mpv works fine $ mpv will directly play audio.

I know you’re not targeting android with pyradio but the closest to getting something working officially would be using this Simple Protocol Player method.

You’ve guarded user inputs in the config files well, I tried to break connection_timeout high and low but it constrains it back to default.

I’ve stripped out the lines for the timeout counter to activate in ln1126-ln1137 Plays fine now :] Just a message about “Opening connection…” , I tried setting the connection_timeout_thread = True in hopes that that would short circuit it to think the job was done but to no avail.

BTW, If you do post a tutorial or guide or something about how you did this, please do send us a link.

It would be really interesting!
