PyRadio is a console based Internet radio player. It is implemented in Python, and uses mplayer for media playback. Download version 0.2.

PyRadio has been tested under Ubuntu 9.04, but should run without any problems under most UNIX based operating systems. To get it running you'll need Python and mplayer. Instructions are below:


  1. Download PyRadio (you might need to right click on the link and select "save as")
  2. Unzip the archive file, which includes "pyradio" and "stations.csv".
  3. Make the "pyradio" file executable. From the command line: chmod +x ./pyradio
  4. And run: ./pyradio
  5. You can customise your stations list by editing the stations.csv file
