Radio Tray ~ Linux Radio Player


Radio Tray is an online radio streaming player that runs on a Linux system tray. Its goal is to have the minimum interface possible, making it very straightforward to use. Radio Tray is not a full featured music player, there are plenty of excellent music players already. However, there was a need for a simple application with minimal interface just to listen to online radios. And that’s the sole purpose of Radio Tray.

Features:

  • plays most media formats (based on gstreamer libraries)
  • drag & drop bookmarks support
  • easy to use
  • supports PLS playlist format (Shoutcast/Icecast)
  • supports M3U playlist format
  • supports ASX, WAX and WVX playlist format
  • extensible by plugins

Cdrdao ~ Disk-At-Once Recording


Cdrdao records audio or data CD-Rs in disk-at-once (DAO) mode based on a textual description of the CD contents.

Advantages of Disk-At-Once (DAO) Recording:

Recording in disk-at-once mode writes the complete disc, i.e. lead-in, one or more tracks and lead-out, in a single step. The commonly used track-at-once (TAO) mode writes each track independently which requires link blocks between two tracks. Older CD-recorder models forced a two second pause (pre-gap) between two tracks whereas newer models allow adjusting of the pause length in TAO mode reducing the number of link blocks to a minimal amount. However, with TAO it is generally not possible to define the data that is written in pre-gaps. But exactly this feature makes audio CD recording interesting, e.g. by creating hidden bonus tracks or track intros in pre-gaps like it is common habit on commercial CDs. Finally, DAO recording is the only way to write data to the unused R-W sub-channels for e.g.  CD-G or CD-TEXT.

Features:

  • Full control over length and contents of pre-gaps (pause areas between tracks). Pre-gaps may be completely omitted, e.g. for dividing live recordings into tracks.
  • Control over sub-channel data like:
    • catalog number
    • copy, pre-emphasis, 2-/4-channel flags
    • ISRC code
    • index marks
  • Support for exact audio, data and mixed mode CD copying.
  • Support for R-W sub-channel writing.
  • Tracks may be composed of different audio files supporting non destructive cut.
  • Accepts WAVE and raw audio files.
  • CD-TEXT reading and writing with drives that support it.
  • CDDB access to automatically create CD-TEXT data.
  • Support for on-the-fly copying.

DarkIce ~ Live Audio Streamer


DarkIce records audio from an audio interface (e.g. sound card), encodes it and sends it to a streaming server.

DarkIce can record from:

  • OSS audio devices
  • ALSA audio devices
  • Solaris audio interface
  • Jack sources
  • uLaw audio input through a serial interface
  • CoreAudio (branch darkice-macosx)

DarkIce can encode in the following formats:

  • MP3 – using the lame library
  • MP2 – using the twolame library
  • Ogg Vorbis
  • AAC LC – using the faac library
  • AAC HEv2 – using libaacplus library
  • Opus – using Xiph’s libopus library
  • Vorbis – using Xiph’s libvorbis library

DarkIce can send the encoded stream to the following streaming servers:
