Go to octoshape and execute ./OctoshapeClient -url:octoshape:BROADCASTER.channel

Done installing.

6) You can play the radio at this point. But Octoshape default player is using MPlayer. You can either get MPlayer installed or, change default radio player by editing setup.xml (in octoshape folder)

$ gedit setup.xml
I am using rhythmbox, so I add this option.
Add -- PlayerExec="rhythmbox $url"



For FLY FM listener:
$ ./OctoshapeClient -url:mpb.flyfm.mp3.high

For HOT FM listener:
$ ./OctoshapeClient -url:mpb.hotfm.mp3.high

The player you chose will automatically started and playing your favorite radio station. ENJOY, cheers.
