Radio Stream Player 18.104.22.168
Allows you to stream online radio stations without having to run a bloated player, or having a internet browser window open
The interface is just minimal and that's the point that makes Radio Stream Player a bit special, taking minimum space on your screen.
Using MMS streams exclusively, Radio Stream Player places an icon in the Windows System Tray, thus giving you the option to instantly access its main window with a single click.
While the program comes with several hundreds of channels, it also allows users to add their very own stations to the list, with required fields including station name, URLs, homepage and station status.
Radio Stream Player sorts the available stations by country, so it's easy to find one that you like, with all information displayed right in the main window, alongside controls for muting, stopping and volume adjusting.
Plus, the same main window is being used to show the three most played stations, pretty handy if you use the application on a regular basis.
On the down side however, we missed a configuration screen that could let us tweak the program and change the interface or various other options. Plus, we couldn't bookmark stations, which means you have to get through the entire station collection every time.
All in all, Radio Stream Player is a decent program that still needs a bunch of improvements in key areas. Plus, more predefined stations and a built-in bookmark manager are must haves.
