FM Radio Player 188.8.131.52
Smooth installation and simple-to-handle environment
The setup process does not last longer than a few moments and it does not come bundled with any offers from third-party software.
The interface is based on a user-friendly window, where you can view the last played ten songs or shows for a selected channel. Moreover, it is possible to pause the stream and adjust the volume level with the incorporated playback controls. As a result, all types of users can work with it with ease, and even in the absence of Help contents.
Configure settings and manage plugins
A few settings can be configured for this app. To be more precise, you can enable FM Radio Player's to automatically launch at system startup, show information about songs and notifications, and enable cache for song information.
FM Radio Player also integrates a function for managing plugins that you can download. Unfortunately, the developer's website is no longer active, so this option is no longer functional. On the other hand, advanced users have the possibility of building their own plugins, as instructions are listed in the Readme document found in the program files.
Performance and conclusion
The tool is very light on the system resources, running on a minimal amount of CPU and RAM. It has a good response time and delivers quality audio. No error dialogs have been shown in our tests, and the app did not hang or crash; we have not experienced any difficulties.
It looks like FM Radio Player shall not be receiving further updates, so the preset radio choices are restricted to the four Romanian stations. All in all, it proves to be a pretty simple, yet handy piece of software.
