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

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

freakazoid on 2015-09-08 17:29

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

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

@smaragdus

Thanks. :)

ozok on 2017-07-18 09:30

Fosshub links are fixed.

hamasaki on 2017-07-18 13:00

Thanks. Ok, two problems for me with the software.

1. There is no sound at all. No problems with all other players on my comp, but this one no sound at all.

2. If I add a folder of MP3 files it adds the files ok, but if I use the option to add a file, the interface flickers and does nothing. I try again, flickers, then after a few seconds crashes.

I`m on Win 10 64Bit.

Excellent portable radio player (perhaps the best one, I say perhaps because I cannot be sure I have tested all radio players) which is frequently updated. More- the developer is very helpful and open to suggestions.

Seems to work and connect very well, thank you!

Thanks a lot indeed!

Great program that's definitely my preferred DI.FM premium interface but unfortunately I'm having constant connection issues.  I tried to contact the dev but couldn't seem to get access to their forum.  For the moment, I've switched over to VLC.

(I am posting this as a comment because what I wish to ask was mentioned as a comment previously.)
Query=> Radiosure's database is in text format and I tried editing it to shrink it to a more reasonable size - but editing it breaks it and the program says 'cannot connect'.

Can anyone recommend how to do this so it is alot smaller and still works ??
(There's thousands of stations in it I would never use.)

Thanks.

smallhagrid on 2013-12-08 14:59

I found an app that does it - Pspad=>
http://www.fosshub.com/PSPad.html

Just removed 100 stations and it opened/worked fine.

As one who speaks/reads only english, there is no use in my having thousands of non-english radio stations; I will never use them.

I suggested to them to offer DBs of stations by language for single-language folks but they didn't answer yet.

fullbug on 2014-05-08 16:55

Works pretty well, thanx!
