Crashed several times on me. .NET framework crash. Some stations don't work with it.

Ah ... what an improvement.

The interface is still ugly, but I usually minimize it anyway after starting it and selecting my station.

And now more that 100 stations are available. There are English, Portuguese, Dutch, French, Swedish, and Norwegian Stations listed (and perhaps more ... is Batanga a language?). Music formats are many, even Classical has been added.

The digital sound, of course, is excellent.

There are many other players freely available, some better looking with more Radio (stream) choices than this one. Spider is an excellent example, and I prefer it to this one. Spider has more features such as an equalizer, and can be used to play files on your computer. But Spider can be imtimidating, its features hard to find, and can be more difficult to use. The average user may not even realize that internet streams can be played.

That said, I will continue to use Spider most of the time, but this one will remain on my computer for further use. I like it.

I looked at this program again. It now has a better interface, not nearly so ugly as it has been in the past. And it's mix of stations has improved. I am, however, disappointed that I found no Classical Music stations on the list.

It installed quickly, but the installation did cause a minor computer crash ... though the machine did not require a reboot. I'm not sure what that was about. Perhaps it was a conflict with my operating system, Vista. I do, however, have UAC turned off, so there should not have been a conflict.

I do not intend to use this player in it's present state, so I will uninstall it. But I do think it shows promise for the future, so I shall continue to watch these pages for updates, and shall try them as they come.

I need a web UI to remote control something like this on a HTPC.

It works, but stations are pretty crapy. BBC News doesn't even work.Anyway, nothing great and surely not deserving anything close to a 4.

Very good. In february 2007 in this forum I found Screamer Radio, very similar to this Radio Stream Player, and keep using it every day since then.

I have downloaded and tried this program for a couple of hours now. It's very small. But it lack a lot of features, and has a primitive user interface.
Not many presets at all.
It crashed a few times, especially during the update process.
No recording, which is a shame.

Interesting new player with a small footprint.

When I downloaded the app, I hoped they would have a large number of stations, simliar to "Screamer", but was disappointed to find just a few stations, most in categories I'm not interested in listening to ... but, after a short time, I was easily able to add one of my favorite stations to the list.

While I am not able to give a technical review to this player other than to say it works, and it sounded good to my ears, I believe it shows a lot of promise.

One minus -- it doesn't have a record option, Perhaps they will add this feature in the future (along with a better mix of stations).
