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

ShuiCast ~ Foobar / WinAmp Streaming


ShuiCast is a plugin for both Winamp and Foobar2000 that provides the ability to broadcast various audio formats to a few of the major broadcasting servers. It is a continuation of the Oddcast/Edcast streaming software that can stream to either Icecast or Shoutcast servers, integrating changes made by the AltaCast and Edcast-Reborn spinoffs.

Features:

  • Stream to IceCast or ShoutCast
  • Support for Ogg Vorbis, LAME (lame_enc.dll), and AAC (libfaac.dll) – note lame_enc.dll and libfaac.dll must be downloaded separately in order to use these formats
  • Multiple encoders (you can simultaneously broadcast in multiple formats at the same time)
  • Standalone application as well as plugin for Winamp, RadioDJ and Foobar2000
  • Metadata not only from media player (i.e. Winamp) but also from a file, a URL or a window
  • Peak and RMS Meter
  • Live Recording (you can switch on/off without disconnecting the encoder)

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:

Streamripper ~ Record Shoutcast-compatible Streams


Streamripper was started sometime back in early 2000. Streamripper started as a way to separate tracks via Shoutcast’s title-streaming feature. This has now been expanded into a much more generic feature, where part of the program only tries to “hint” at where one track starts and another ends, thus allowing a mp3 decoding engine to scan for a silent mark, which is used to find an exact track separation.

Streamripper is now part of the FreeBSD standard distribution, mentioned in the Linux MP3 HOWTO, known to compile on many platforms such as Linux, Windows, FreeBSD, BeOS, OS/2. This is not surprising as portability was a constant consideration during development.

With the emergence of file sharing protocols such as Napster, Gnutella, and now Mojonation and Freenet, the average Internet user can download nearly any mp3 he wants in a matter of no time, but many times people don’t know what they want. Streamripper allows you to download an entire station of music. Many of these mp3 radio stations only play certain genres, so you can now download an entire collection of goa/trance music, an entire collection of jazz, punk rock, whatever you want.

Zinf ~ The New FreeAmp Player


The Zinf audio player is a simple, but powerful audio player for Linux and Win32. It supports MP3, Ogg/Vorbis, WAV and Audio CD playback, SHOUTcast/Icecast HTTP streaming, RTP streaming, a powerful music browser, theme support and a download manager.

Zinf is based on the FreeAmp source code. However, AMP® is a trademark of PlayMedia Systems, Inc., and therefore the original name of the project cannot be used any longer. On this website the old project will be referred to as FreeA*p.

Why Zinf? Zinf Is Not FreeA*p!

MOC ~ Music On Console


MOC (music on console) is a console audio player for LINUX / UNIX designed to be powerful and easy to use.

You just need to select a file from some directory using the menu similar to Midnight Commander, and MOC will start playing all files in this directory beginning from the chosen file. There is no need to create playlists as in other players.

However if you want to combine some files from one or more directories on one playlist, you can still do it. The playlist will be remembered between runs or you can save it as an m3u file and load it whenever you want.

Need the console where MOC is running for more important things? Need to close the X terminal emulator? You don’t have to stop listening to the music – just press q and the interface will be detached leaving the server running. You can reattach it later, or you can attach one interface in the console, and another in the X terminal emulator, no need to switch just to play another file.

MOC plays smoothly, regardless of system or I/O load because it uses the output buffer in a separate thread. It provides gapless playback because the next file to be played is precached while the current file is playing.

Internet streams (Icecast, Shoutcast) are supported.

Icecast ~ Open Source Audio Server


Icecast is a streaming media (audio/video) server which currently supports Ogg (Vorbis and Theora), Opus, WebM and MP3 streams. It can be used to create an Internet radio station or a privately running jukebox and many things in between. It is very versatile in that new formats can be added relatively easily and supports open standards for communication and interaction.
