Need recommendation on internet radio tuner...

Post by jbaerbock »

Well I have loverly Banshee as music player but now I am looking for a good internet radio tuner. Would like the program to play the music within itself so no need to open firefox windows. And of course would like it to look nice in Mint. Any suggestions?

Nvm just realized Banshee has radio stations within it. Feel free to suggest anyway though.

In Mint there is Amarok. It has some radios programmed and you can rip them I guess.

Exaile also can be used for listening and recording but there are no radios programmed , you must enter them yourself. :)

Yeah Banshee is my fav thus far. Amarok never saved my playlists correctly so I got rid of it and Banshee does it all.

Banshee? My god no! :twisted:

It is a Mono (the reimplementation of Microsoft .NET) application and comes with 3 .exe files, 47 .dll files and 17 .mdb files. It's exactly what you needed to feel "at home" in Linux. :evil: (see http://packages.debian.org/etch/banshee/i386/filelist)

I'm using Exaile, it seem lighter and faster then Amarok. I will try Rhytmbox now.
