My ratingWrite review
Recorded every stream I threw at it, for over 10 years. Still works like a charm even now
No longer can be upgraded. Abandonware.
Xoteck closed a sometime around 2012 (website is now a parked page for sale), so there's no way to upgrade to paid. Works great with Shoutcast and Icecast. Can record long single-file shows or in smaller files (dependent on ID3 tags in the files played on the stream). Even works in Windows 8.1 with no issue. Sad that it's gone the abandonware-route, it was my go-to for SC records.
its good if it works with vista
no help from ripcast web site
I use ripcast mainly for listening to classical stuff. The main advantage over trad radio is that you get to hear the whole piece, not just snippets
The only drawback is deciding which station to listen to (though the bowser is very helpful)
Instructions indicate user should click "tune in" button, followed by "open" option. I tried two pages of stations (more than 40) and "open" was never presented as an option. This software does not work. Do not expect any support.
easy to use
Enjoyed the product for a few years, in '03 & '04, upgraded & paid for it (when the free version w/no download limits was around). It is integrated with a good streaming radio site...
After a pc crash, I tried it again months later; no more free version available (the trial limits you to downloading around 35MB at a time) so I bought it online, again; but a useless serial number was given to me. No customer service or response to my e-mails. A friend had the same problem as well. A waste of $18.00. Find some other software that records off your sound card when you tune in to a radio stream. Even if it costs more. RipCast turned into a disappointing RipOff.

Same here in 2013, emailed them three times and no response, i had it years ago too and it was great, i think the company is not existing anymore??
Records Music in Mp3 from stream radio stations
Should integrate with Itunes
so simple to use, thousnds of station's to listen to! just type in the type of musi you like and press go.+ you can save your station's.
can't think of anything.
Use it for downloading MP3 format of my favorite Radio shows. Then upload it on my pda to listen !!!
Each time you close the program you must reload the station you are downloading. It seems that the IP address changes and this is why you must constantly put in the last IP address
clean and simple
