I'm looking for a way to start MB playing the last song from the last position without pressing the play button but i have found a strange behavior. So i'm using Preferences\Player\Audio player\On Startup: Resume position and tried with the following command lines:
-With PlayPause it only produces music for about 300 miliseconds and moves to the beginning of the song. It's like stop, play, pause. I don't get what is this for, is for start buffering some streaming?
-With PlayResume it only start playing if i was playing a song the last time i closed MB. If i paused it before closing, then it starts paused.

If these behaviors are intentional, then i propose the usual /play without a following path, to always start MB playing some music. TIA!

Can I start a radio station with /play?

I know that.  But are radio station names accepted?  I figure a filename/path would work, but I don't know the path.

No, you need the URL.  For example,  for the station Wildcat--Gothique you need to use the path http://144.217.253.136:8535/stream

Do you already have the radio station added to MusicBee?  If so, right-click "Edit" on the station entry, and whatever is in the "stream url:" box is what you want to use.
