Best Radio Streaming App To Convert

Post#1 by jimwg » 11 Jun 2015, 17:39

Greetings!

Need opinions from those who have already had experiences with these radio streaming apps so I don't re-invent the wheel converting into xsm for Porteus use to donate to archives.

Radio Tray, Pandora, TunaPie, RythmnBox, Streamtuner.

Thanks for any hints.

Hi jimwg,

There is Great Little Radio Player included in the 64bit KDE version. I'm not sure about 32bit version.
Check under Applications > Multimedia

Here is a general review on best streaming radios:

It is written that streaming radio is evolving very fast.

I know about two good streaming music applications: tunein radio and songza.

VLC you can reach tunein radio, see:

Songza is said to be reached thru Google browser:

And maybe it should be added kodi multimedia center available for porteus by cttan which will host many of the above streaming radios:

In xfce one can use the (built in) GNOME MPlayer to listen to internet radio.
open (gnome)mplayer > ctrl+l > paste in the stream url
