    "Does what I would expect, very well too."

    February 15, 2012  |   By martin447

    Pros

    Plays various formats.

    Unlike undedicated media players, this one has a list of 'stations'.

    You can [of course] add stations you find yourself to the list.

    There's an inbuilt recording-function.

    Like most media players, you can decide the output device (that means something in my case).

    [The free version] (It) Is free.

    It's advertised that it can cut out the ads itself [if you bought it].

    The list of [known] stations is updated weekly

    With the stations you add yourself, you can add several links to the same station, which is useful in cases such as if they have a link for dial-up-speeds streaming, and of course too for broadband.
    And if you for some reason want to add several formats (if they 'broadcast' in AAC at one of the links, which tends to be streamed in a higher bit-rate as well)

    Cons

    Recording an entire song [if the station has that 'ability' to 'tell' the 'tracks' apart from one-another] is impossible unless you buy the program, [though it records everything anyway, but your media player will mysteriously stop playing around the 25% (I think it was) of the track you recorded].

    Of course there is some more, but I can't justify talking bad about missing features, as those exist in the 'full' program, and it's just their way of earning money... I guess.

    Summary

    The interface is quite simple, and it's easy to add your own stations, and even if you don't know what bit-rate and what format the station that you add 'broadcast' in, then do not worry - as the program don't actually care, it will just try and stream it, and figure it out on its own - very simple.

    I don't know what else to write (I am not good at writing reviews).
