Milko! Milko! Oh sorry. Hey, Isn't this pretty much the same idea as the Google OS, only running on Windows (which has all those items already?)
Not saying anything about the looks or function of it, whatever floats your boat.

If it would include the stream buffering and recording functionalities that it still misses, Winyl would easily replace my current preferred webradio client -- which still is RadioSure (

I know, but such a versioning shows nothing about the history/maturity of the product. If it was 0.8.7 or 1.0.0 it would be OK for me.

Checker on 2014-09-07 03:03

There's a portable v14.9.0 (for 32-bit only) available.

gbrao on 2014-09-08 08:04

^ thanks, the portable versions only leave some QT stuff (Qt Factory Cache 4.8) in the reg.

Made a PortableApps version (only) to remove the QT stuff. With both 32- & 64- versions of SMPlayer.
