Java CI Maven Central ReleaseDate javadoc License

A Java API for the RadioBrowser internet radio station online repository.

The library is useful for applications wanting to retrieve internet radio station URLs, streams and meta information.

How to use

Maven for JDK targets

First step is to include the dependency in your Maven or Gradle project. For Maven, you need this dependency:


After adding this dependency, you can start by creating one instance and using it

// 5000ms timeout, user agent is Demo agent/1.0
RadioBrowser browser = new RadioBrowser(5000, "Demo agent/1.0");
// print the first 64 stations in station name order
    .forEach(s -> System.out.printf("%s: %s%n",

You can take a look at the javadoc documentation to get the full concepts of the API.

Gradle for Android targets

Some adjustments are necessary to the packaging of your app build.gradle:


android {
    packagingOptions {
        exclude 'META-INF/'
        exclude 'META-INF/'
        exclude 'META-INF/NOTICE.markdown'

dependencies {

    implementation 'de.sfuhrm:radiobrowser4j:2.2.3';

Add the following statements to the Proguard config if you are obfuscating your build:

-keep class org.glassfish.hk2.utilities.** { *; } -keep class org.glassfish.jersey.** { *; } -keep class org.jvnet.hk2.internal.** { *; } -keep class de.sfuhrm.radiobrowser4j.** { *; }

More examples

The library was extracted from an internet radio player and recorder program in Java, radiorecorder. You can take a look at real-life usage patterns there.

How it is tested

The API is tested using the WireMock REST testing framework. Mocked web requests/responses are located in the test resources.
