Still works for me EXCEPT in Windows 8 but I'm using early pre-release version and final might be different. Runs fine for 30 or so minutes but usually by an hour it has frozen or repeats a small segment of the incoming stream and I have to shut it down and rerun it so I wind up missing a segment of a 4 hour program if I leave it alone. To keep up with modern times needs to be tested under Win 8 and debugged. Meanwhile I'm using another product under Win 8 although I prefer to use Screamer R..

As a basic streaming and recording program it works well, just a couple things:

a.) when you first start the player, make sure to go top menu>recording>begin recording and make sure it is checked OFF.
For some reason it was already enabled when I downloaded the portable version. YMMV of course.

b.) As was mentioned before, the gui could use updating, maybe add vista/win7 taskbar controls (as windows media player classic already does) or basic skinning support.

c.) Regarding radio presets, there are times when stations fail to load "gives up" (as the radio station may have changed iURL or network ports), so you need to manually edit or add stations occasionally. For example under the "salsa" genre, there are 10 listed, but only one "sky FM" actually works. YMMV of course.

I have toyed with this program for years. It does what it is advertised to do, plays internet radio streams, and does it quite well. I find that there's a very small memory footprint, and doesn't take up your desktop.

The interface is a bit weak. All the functionality is there, however, I wouldn't mind seeing some degree of skinning and maybe a mini-view when it's playing in the background. It reminds me of a media player from 1998.

One thing I will say is that it gives one of the most thorough listing of radio stations of the other media player programs. I believe the lists are compiled from the shoutcast yp, icecast yp, and then personal submissions from users on their forum. All my favorites are there, and tons more to choose from.

That all being said, it's great. Works excellent. Just could use a face lift.

Unfortunately this comes with lots of presets from all over that simply don't work and even if you know the proper url, it is impossible to correct it's internal list.
If you want a simple gui to record a simple stream, look no further.
The fact it's presets are such a mess is what turns me off completely.
It's like looking to buy a car with a convertible top, and getting it home and finding out you bought a lunchtruck.

The menu tweak must have gotten rid of the interface bug I was speaking of.
Running XP, I still pointed the install to the programs folder overwriting v0.4.2 with no problems.
Great working release....Thanks

As being a critical I can only say : this prog totally rocks! Being freeware and so handy to use, amazing!Now also for Vista, just install it and listen to all the stations you like and how cool is it then you directly can record them in MP3(!), the icon in the tray turns then into red, very handy now and directly change the max file lenght to ZERO in Preferences
Tip.In changing favorites you can simply your ad your own station if not present in the list in a notepad presentation simply by copy paste the allready present favorite(s) with your own url replaced, tested&works!In version 0.39 there where some problems rembering the added favorites, it seems that has been solved now with version 0.43. Low CPU usage offcourse, you do not mention that is ON except for the music offcourse!
Are there things I miss? Yes, a 3-bands equalizer, skinsupport and going to the tray while clicking on close instead of really closing,a little annoying
Edit : this can be changed in Preferences! Absolut 5* worth!
Looking for freeware prog supporting Last.Fm? Try RaimaRadio Free on www.raimasoftware.com and do not constantly asking the same question : I do like to see supporting it Last.Fm...

I find it hilarious that henrypeck tries insulting me (a common response after one gives free crap a low rating), and then claims that the version I reviewed was a "beta". In fact, 0.4.1 was not, and neither is this version. Look at the home page, it says: "Latest stable v0.4.3 | Latest beta No current beta".

I'll never apologize for rating as I see fit. Grading on a curve is senseless.

Sorry this is a piece of crap. I know Screamer has its fans. But, no offense to the developer, who I'm sure is working as hard as he can, but this program is not being patched at all quickly, and certainly later versions are not ready for prime time. These are alpha releases at best. Consider, for instance, the windows stack problems that will bring your machine to its knees if you play this thing over a couple of days. How long has this problem been reported? Also, the presets make the whole thing lose menus, and this has been happening for how many revisions. Come on. I know its freeware, but does anyone need this hassle to run a radio program? Look. Save yourself a lot of grief. Download the best little player in the world. It's called XMplay. It has an amazing radio stream feature. It works like a rock, it actually screams, and is frugal on resources. But it will also play more than radio stations. It's simply the best solution I've seen. Winamp isn't bad either. I just find all these browser features and what not distracting if I'm just trying to work with the radio streaming some instrumental. Also, Winamp is less than frugal.

Honestly? xmplay streams and sounds much better. Author doesn't update presets even when asked to in forums and apparently neither can I. I only like one station (3 really) and xmplay handles them fine.

I'm not gonna push Rarma like others, but I have to agree, its more than buggy since v0.38.
I see the same interface disappearance's, then it begins to somehow cause other open apps to lose their input response.
The whole time still playing and recording perfectly.

What a piece of crap. Half the time when I run it, the Presets menu appears in the tray menu but not on the main window. Sometimes, when I simply add a preset to my favorites, the ENTIRE menu disappears.

Some stations are identified by their owner name (i.e. "ChroniX Radio"), even when that owner may have several stations of a DIFFERENT subformat and/or bitrate within the same genre.

There's no search functionality for presets, which sucks. You can't tell what bitrate a station is in before you play it, which sucks. You can't tell what URL a station uses before you play it, which sucks.

And how could anyone SERIOUSLY think that using multiple fly-out menus is a good interface design? It's beyond awful.

Take a look at RarmaRadio's interface. You can browse presets in a tree. You can sort them. You can search for and filter presets. You can see URLs and bitrates for any preset. You can view/configure/use the home URL for any station. You can customize and add toolbars. And so on. I'm not saying the RarmaRadio interface is perfect, but its interface blows Screamer Radio out of the water. It's like Dasani versus benzene.

By the way, RarmaRadio can show album art and song lyrics. It works with Last.FM. It has "dynamic boost" for stations that have a crap bitrate. Enjoy your freebie, but personally, I want something that doesn't suck, even if it costs me money.

People are so easily impressed and happy to settle it disgusts me--never more so than when I have to sift through a stack of free-but-highly-rated crap just to arrive at something decent.

Great interface but still very much a beta.

GUI lost menu items (in particular, Presets) may come back if you toggle the "Always on Top" option - but this is a fairly serious issue that needs addressing with a new release.

Cannot play UK BBC Radio - wrong media type - this is a must-have for me.

Sometimes loses all settings temporarily if it cannot connect to screamer.radio.com - summat funny going on there, somewhere.

Would like to be able to set up timed recording "record BBC Radio 4 at 4pm for 1 hour" sort of thing.

Don't get me wrong, this is definitely something I want on my system - when it works, it's so sweet it's magical. At the very least, keep an eye on this one and get it when you think it's usable enough.

That didn't work. The forum ate my code!
Have a look at this: http://pastebin.com/f1b7d6592

-------

No need to edit presets.xml.gz.

Use favorites.xml. Start by saving the currently playing station as a favorite.

Favorites | Add current station to Favorites

That should create a favorites.xml.

Edit that file, placing whatever stations you want in there, then go to File | Reload Favorites to refresh the Favorites list.

Note the format of the .xml file.


You can also create "groups" (fly-out lists) by placing stations within a Group tag.

I always thought that Screamer Radio is a great freeware radio and it truly is
May I suggest that you try out http://www.raimersoft.com/forum.aspx
To see what Screamer Radio is lacking this is Shareware that was once
Freeware but its truly worth a try to see what a great radio can be.

This is a truly fantastic internet radio software. Almost every possible feature has been implemented. Only thing I can think of that's lacking is a search for stations. Other than that's it's loaded with every feature I could possibly imagine.

Higly recommended, works perfectly in XP and Freeware. You can search by Genre, add to favorites (to change favorites you directly go into notepad, great advantage!) and record the streaming in MP3 and having the name of the song also added in the MP3name!
Add your own station also and light CPU. Absoluty Rocks! I'm waiting for the new release for Vista support...

Perfect-almost. (xmplay has better stream support)
I gave author this stream
http://wmc1.liquidviewer.net/kpoa
and he added it to presets. It's the only station I bother with. problem is when you open the preset (KPOA), author added more to the line:
http://wmc1.liquidviewer.net/kpoa?MSWMExt=.asf
Why is this extra bs there?
I don't have any problems opening KPOA in xmplay OR screamer without the ?MSWMExt=.asf added to end of url. It will play either url but for some reason always has a connection error on start with or without the extra. I continually have to press play to get it to connect.
This is my only beef other than the extra bs at end of source url.

OK the good and the bad (at least for me).

The good is this program is brilliant !
Loads of presets (including the ever popular scanners :)) Some comedy radio would be nice though.
Love the way, when you record, it not only records direct to MP3, butsplits them up automatically when the radio changes its song. How cool is that !??
Simple GUI, no messing, no BS. Just does what it says on the tin.

Now... saying all that I am having problems with it (the current beta, and now the 0.38stable). When Screamer is running, I can no longer access folders on my desktop, or favourites in my browser (Firefox). They just don't open.
Also the Menu titles in Screamer disappear and reappear for seemingly no reason. Reloading the config temporarily fixes it until they go again.
The record button being clicked causes this for example.
Same in the preferences. Click on the recording tab and it disappears, so then does the Encoding tab.

Anyone else getting this ?

If I delete the folder for Screamer and unzip 0.38 again, when it runs all is fine again. As soon as the presets are loaded, half the menu headings disappear then they reappear randomly when pressing buttons.
So for this I can only give 3 stars on an otherwise good program. Too buggy :(

I like it also because my favorite internet radio station is listed in the Presets : NetMusique.com

Best internet player you can find, I am using 0.3.8 and the only thing that needs improvement is the way you can remove your favorites, it's working with Notepad and you have remove the lines yourselve. There should be an option with or without Notepad (automatic/handly) and a equalizer implented would ROCKS!! Still give it a rating because its works so well, low cpu and allways getting me in the mood :-)

Your review, like your nickname are a disgrace. you rate a piece of software low because you don't like the look of the app, rather than the app's functionality, which is what this rating system is supposed to be for.

"Dixon_Butz", you're giving it a three because screamer radio has a simple interface. A program needs functionality before all else and screamer radio does exactly that. With a small file size, hundreds of stations, low system load, and the ability to record stations. There is no other internet radio program that has as many features in such a small size. Maybe in the future the creator will allow customization of the interface, but I hope it will only be minor and not a full blown skinning interface because it would increase the screamer's use of system resources. Screamer radio continues to be my favorite program to recommend to people. Keep up the good work.

Winamp disapointed me too much...
I can not believe now ,
this program gave me the joy finally...
I can download and browse Internet and listen to my favorite radio without any load buffering...
Who coded this owns high skills , for real.
Thank you very much.
Karl :)

Excellent all around.
It even comes with a well tasty presets/channels.

I mostly like the minimalist approach to it, rather than having the bloat that comes with skinning and plug-ins.

So, please David, keep it this way and thank you for the great SCREAMER... can you hear it:)

this program is perfect!
the only reason i give a 4 is that there is no ability to use DSP plugins or anything similar to them. people complain about winamp, but i find it loads just as fast as this does, and winamp uses JUST over 3mb RAM, while this uses just UNDER 3mb. so not THAT big of a dif. definitely a nice piece software. but once they add DSP capabilities so i can make the incoming streams sound that much better, it will be a permanent tool I use daily. until then, it's still winamp for me

Excellent program. It installs and runs with ease and the quality of the audio it delivers is brilliant. No problems at all, sweet! Good selection of presets too!

Terrible interface, configured by manually editing an XML file, no scheduling... Sorry, no grading on a curve for freeware by me.

Awesome program. Does its job and does it very well.

Does need some extra options tho.
The favorites section doesnt work properly, but the creator says he's working on it so that will be fixed.
Support for hotkeys is something I would LOVE to have, but no doubt that will come to :)

The best i have tried yet, period.
Keep up the good work!

GOOD STUFF!!!! Has the genres that I wanted, and it works straight as if its straight from windows media...forget windows media...this prog here loads much faster..(Instant).. But the only drawback is the GUI style, but it compensates for its appearance, IT DOES THE JOBS!!! THUMBS UP, NO DOUBLE THUMBS UP, I give Massive Props (= its the good sht mang!

I love it. Radio streaming off the internet while I surf. It is only using 3% of my cpu. If I didn't have to write an xml to put favorites, I'd give it a 5

Wow! No setup, works great out of the box. One of the coolest programs - free or not - that I've downloaded in quite awhile. Small, efficient, and just FUN!

Reviews are opinions, and the review I left was my opinion. I don't know why there is constant flaming in reviews; I'm glad you like the program, I do not. No one has to take my word for it, which is the great thing about freeware.

@sflorack, are you nuts? Screamer Radio is really great. Thank God it is simple and does not need a lot of resources and HDD space. Moreover, the quality of sound is superior.

Wooow sflorack,

Since the times of the Spectrum 48K I haven't seen any application using 1.7 K.

I give it a 5 then.

Uses less resources (1.7k) than Winamp 5 (17k), but otherwise is inferior in all other aspects (sound quality, favorites, GUI, etc). No equalizer, very bland GUI, and doesn't even automatically assume duties as PLS file player. Recommended if you have limited resources and don't want to get an earlier version of Winamp.

Simple, small, and does very well at what it states.. Could use an bit more in the line of favorites but that's minor.
