RNORadio is a GUI based internet radio player program for MP3 streams.
The actual streaming and playback is based on the CgmRadio program, but
RNORadio still works as a stand-alone program with no dependencies.


- Two GUI options: MUI or custom skin(s)
- Displays stream titles in real-time from the MP3 metadata
- Comprehensive station editor, with an option to load a station logo(s) from
a local drive or Internet (both HTTP and HTTPS protocols are supported)
- Supports multiple streams per station
- Can import streams from PLS, M3U, Extended M3U, and XSPF playlist files
- Has a Shoutcast search window
- Animation support for custom skin elements, and a station's logo
- Alpha transparency support for custom skins with images and animations
- Can display extra information from stations, but currently only intended to
display the "OneLiner" chat from Nectarine when using the MUI GUI
- Generate a web search from a streamed title/track
- ARexx, command line, and tooltypes support


- Copy the whole directory anywhere you want and just launch the program


The program should be quite straightforward to use, but here are some notes
about using it practically.

The Shoutcast search window can be opened from the Project menu or by using
the simultaneous keypress RCommand and o (RCmd+o) hotkey. When the Shoutcast
window/GUI opens enter search parameters in the search field or just leave
the search field empty and click search to list the top stations. Searches
can also be listed in ascending/descending order by clicking the column title.

Double-clicking a station, or selecting an item and clicking the Add button,
will add a selected station to the stations list.

If the Edit Stations window is not open the current station will switch to
the new station immediately, otherwise the new station won't get used until
the Edit Station window is closed with the Save or Use buttons.

Stations can be selected in a custom GUI by using the right mouse-button
pull-down/pop-up menu, or by left-clicking on a station/stream names in a
custom GUI (hidden menu option) to open the Select Streams window.

You can allocate up to 10 favourite Hotkeys for stations, by selecting the
Hotkey option when editing streams and choosing a used Hotkey. To use it,
press Right Command + (chosen number) to swap to that station.


RNORadio uses non-standard command line arguments. Arguments must be given
in the form of (note the "-" prefix): -argument parameter

Allowed arguments:
-autoplay . . . . . . - Starts playback automatically

-compositing <ON|OFF> - Forces compositing ON/OFF instead of auto-detecting it

The same arguments can be used as icon tooltypes, but by omitting the
"-" prefix.
