With ffmpeg in the back this is the one delivering when Android itself doesn't. One thing though, the icon is too big and not very good especially when in the notification bar. Many years later I'm back here confirming how great this little streaming app really is. Never fails and plays my local NPR station every day for hours on addition to Radio Paradise and Soma.fm. My one wish is that it was a little better at extracting meta data from streams, but that's it. Otherwise perfect! Can't say that about many apps these days.
I love it, the latest version seems to be working really well. Previously I had an issue stopping a stream, I had to force stop the app to make it go away. Glad to see it's fixed. Any plans to add a share option for the currently playing stream (url)? Edit: I found the share option, but I expected it on the music controls screen, not in the playlist. Still, well deserved 5 stars!
It does not render the current song metadata correctly (actually not at all) when listening to a shoutcast stream. Idk if other stream types work. The simplistic menu is nice for a change instead of everyone trying to outdo each other with (not-so-incredible) eye candy menus or black background menus.
I wanted to live stream audio. Worked great for about 30 minutes. Lost the connection. When I reentered the URL it played for 5 seconds and stopped. It saved those 5 seconds and now that is all it will play. I have deleted and reentered that same 5 seconds multiple times but it still will no longer connect to the live stream at that URL.
Been listening to MOPS radio for many years, I had been using TuneIn. Great app yet a serious(in my mind anyway) issue. A little F-Droid searching and tried this, fell in love with it, it's pretty easy to use, does what it was made for, and WORKS with Viper4Android!!! Now, TuneIn is just a search engine for stations. Nice work developer.
Good app! Advantages - open source and lightweight. Disadvantage - no "Stop" button (when you press Pause, it is not clear whether it continues to download data or not).
