Automation

You can also use the Radio Browser in automations. When creating an automation, use the Play Media action to pick a station from the directory. This allows you, for example, to create an automation that starts playing your favorite radio station on your Cast devices.

If you want to use a YAML for the automation, you would look like this:

service: media_player.play_media
target:
  entity_id: media_player.YOUR_MEDIA_PLAYER
data:
  media_content_id: media-source://radio_browser/963ccae5-0601-11e8-ae97-52543be04c81
  media_content_type: audio/mpeg
