Tuner

Tuner – radio station player

Other Features

There’s a choice of light and dark themes, and an option to opt out of tracking. The tracking sends a click/vote count to radio-browser.info when you listen to a station or when you star a station. Nothing sinister in that, but we welcome the ability to turn off tracking.

One useful feature is the program’s ability to watch various TV stations. In the image below, we’re watching a Slovakian station.

You can change the station order and edit the favorites list by editing a json file. If you installed Tuner via Flatpak, it’s at ~/.var/app/com.github.louis77.tuner/data/com.github.louis77.tuner

Pretty lame you have to edit a json file to do something so obvious.

On Ubuntu 22.10, I had to install geocode-glib.git and do ‘sudo apt install gtk-doc-tools’ for that.

Wordeful tool. Just one question: Can you export your favorites and reimport them on an other device?
