This is a great release, and a really neat way of listening to live radio on MorphOS, though it's pity that it can't handle Ogg Vorbis, AAC+ and WMA files as well, but this is one of the limitations of CgmRadio I believe. Maybe v3 of CgmRadio will include those options as CgmRadio seems to be coming of age, and very useful, thanks of course to Krashan, Thomas Igracki, and not forgetting jPV with RNORadio as well - thanks go to all concerned.
Let's hope that WebRadio also gets included in the players supported by RNOInfoScreen in the near future.
I found it a little tricky with WebRadio getting the website address that would allow me to download the .mp3 audio from UK stations, and often had to extract the web-address (URL) via somewhat 'exotic' means, namely using MPlayer and when the console opened it showed the actual downloadable address for a specific radio channel, but once this had been imported I could then access the channel quite easily.
Also, by that means I could often access the radio station's logo which I could download and then resize or change image format to suit my own needs to show on the default radio channel list I edited using the plethora of image software already available on MorphOS, such as Showcase/Showgirls, Sketch, RNOEffects, ImageFX, etc..
I often used the UK mp3 website radio station list
, other users, who speak a different language may prefer to use some other website to 'extract' the web-address from for a suitable radio station.
This is a great little screenbar, with the option to record audio - as long as that's allowed.
