Links corrected (hopefully) -- should that happen again, there's also an "Downloads > All builds" page at

The direct download link does not seem to work, but otherwise the site is alive and well ;>}
There is also a Softpedia page.
The download page:
where they announce the availability of a "latest build" (e63b34e)

@IanFromBarrie: Thanks, I have updated the download link.

This download link and the developer site's link to the portable build are for an August 2020 build. The "latest build" link on the developer's web site is the up-to-date one.

afh: Doesn't look like you can add a user and password for the HTTP proxy. You could try something like '' for the host. This might work, but I'm not sure.

If that doesn't work, you could request this feature from the developer.

Is it possible to connect via proxy which requires user and password?

freakazoid: Cool, thanks. I've been using this program for years now and I never noticed that.

Had to use this recently to record a stream.

While that feature works fine, the hidden gem in streamWriter is actually as a web radio station recommendation finder. You can use the 'Title Search' tab to search for your favorite artist and streamWriter will list web radio stations that have played songs from that artist from as much as 160 days ago (furthest I've checked).

I've been playing around with this feature over the last day or so and I've found some great new stations because of this!

Combine this with Specular's suggestion of opening streams in an external player and you've got a gem.
