Listening to radio streams using KDE
Posted by itsec on Sat 7 Jul 2007 at 20:24
I wonder what you all use to listen to live audio streams on the internet.

Currently I stick to kaffeine but I wonder if there are better solutions or must-have plugins. So I ask you: What is your favorite internet radio/stream application?

Cheers,

Torsten

I use VLC for listening to XM Satellite Radio online. I use the MediaPlayerConnectivity Firefox extension to load up the stream in VLC from XM Radio's web interface. It works quite well. (Sipie is a good solution for Sirius radio online, written in Python. I've used it with VLC.)

Before I started listening to XM Radio, I used to use either XMMS or Audacious to play Shoutcast streams. Nice and simple.

I do it very often, but the two pieces of software need GTK, not Qt!

Streamtuner for selecting source and XMMS for actual listening. Of course, both of them work just fine under KDE.
