Radiotray-NG – rustic internet radio player

Last Updated on August 11, 2021


Radiotray-NG is a very simple but useful application for anyone who likes to listen to internet radio streams. It’s very thrifty with its memory footprint. If only more graphical software followed suit.

My biggest bugbear with Radiotray-NG is that it’s a bit cumbersome to add new stations. Both odio and Shortwave make it effortless to build your music library. While Radiotray-NG’s bookmark editor is useful, the software is crying out for integration of an external internet radio directory. This would let you search for stations from a search field, rather than having to find out each stream’s URL. The developer seems interested in adding this functionality.

Why do you build RadioTray NG and won’t let is use the bookmarks list from RadioTray? Now it’s useless
