Tried it for about a week, just uninstalled it. For playing radio, it seemed limited to Winamp/Shoutcast stations. I couldn't find several commercial and public stations on a search that I know are not on Shoutcast. Also seemed sluggish compared to something like Winamp. Worst of all it left a client running even when the program was manually closed (RGService.exe).

Based on these comments I am trying Screamer Radio freeware (Portable Version off a flash drive). Much faster, and has a recording function. Screamer is a very basic program that does what is needed. Like Winamp but leaner.

I started a forum topic called "RadioGet bug reports and feature requests" (Sorry for not doing this sooner).

I would include a clickable link here, but it seems that there is a bug (or an overzealous security feature) in Giveaway of the Day website "leave a comment" submission form, and I cannot properly href the direct forum url into this message. I'll submit a forum topic about this.

So, either search for "radioget" in the forums

OR here is the address that you can copy into your browser address bar to see the forum topic.

imho musicy isn't too bad. it requires net framework.
it has no presets, so to get list of stations, you have to search by
genre, keyword and other options.
when you hit rip, it doesn't start ripping, it adds station to a ripping que list. can record more than one station at a time. volume
control,
I;m not sure of the reason for tick boxes beside each station are for.
if you stop recording before a track has finished, it looks like it won't save it.
There is no help file.

Update to my previous post:

When I got up in the morning, RadioGet was sitting there doing nothing. It looks like it stopped recording shortly after I went to bed. I have no power saving options on the machine except to blank the monitor after a while. I didn't even lock the interface overnight. Not sure what happened there. :-(

Feature request:

It would be nice if users had the option (radioget feature) to tell radioget to store music from a station in a folder of the station's category / classification of the genre of music (and then by artist type as it is already doing). AKA - now that I have recorded music from my 4 stations, I am going to have to go back through the songs and figure out which category they go in, and reorganize them manually. (sigh).

Of course, if the user could tell radioget a separate folder for each station's recordings, this might cover the needs of more users. Both features would make a nice "easy/auto organization" and "advanced organization" features.

Radioget
I like the option to record 1o stations simultanesly.
As another person said, it would be nice if it didn't place each artist into seperate folders. But maybe there was an option not to do that.
It took too long to start up.
It didn't delete stations, i asked it too
So i got rid of it

Nexus radio
It didn't have a text search option, as far as i could see, so i deleted it.

radio sure.
I'm keeping this one for the moment. It loads fast. It loads my last search result. IT Would be nice if it would record more than one station at a time.

screamer. it wouldn't connect to a station i tested on it, so i said bye bye

radio rama- tried it, didn't like, too complicated to go into reasons why.

Downloaded from GOTD. Installed on Xp, Service pack 2 three times now, and every time I click on "Buy", it either says it is forced to stop because of a compatibility issue or the program just crashes or exits, whereas in any case the window for reporting the error to you people comes up. I had even downloaded the zip file and extacted it to install it the 3rd time with the same results.

Interesting and workable, but as a player without recording enabled, it has a couple of problems (under Vista). (1) With record off, it will only play one station. If you choose another, any attempt to play a station via a button, a nav-bar button, or a context menu fails. You have to exit the program to play another station. (2) Closing puts the player in the task notification area (and you can't configure that not to happen). Choosing Exit on the task notification context menu shows the app again with a quiting-will-stop-recording message, even though nothing is recording.

Did the developers ever use the app just as a player?

This is okay for free, and has nice possibilities with the record features, but if you they don't fix the play button problem and provide more configuration options, they will not get $25 for the app.

This is my first internet radio program. My wife likes music, so i thought I would give it a try for her. I mostly like it a lot, but it seems it has plenty of bugs (features?) that it seems anyone should be able to find in normal quality assurance testing before releasing(??!!). Of course, I'm a bug magnet, so maybe its just me. I'm using WXP 32bit, fully patched. I'm passing these along not as complaints, but to help the devs make a better release for next time.

Before I started using favorites, I would click play from a song on the right, and it would appear in the upper left, playing and recording. I would then use the controls in the upper left to control that station. If I stopped it from recording, it would disappear. I can't remember if stopping playing had anything to do with it or not. So I went through several songs, and genre playlists doing this. However, I noticed that sometimes stations would start recording in the lower left when the next song came on even though I was not playing or recording that station anymore (it had automatically disappeared from the upper left).

While this was going on, Sometimes, as I was clicking around other genre lists, some of the old stations (that used to be in the same slot on the right), would play instead of the current genre item I was trying to get to play. I'm wondering if this also had to do with not using the favorites / auto disappearing?

So things that seemed to prevent the above two items from reoccurring:
1. shutting down the software and starting it up again, seems to have cleared the immediate ghost problems.
2. they don't seem to happen for stations that you mark as your favorites.
3. they don't seem to happen if you always use the controls in the genre list on the right (instead of the controls in the upper left).

So now I think I've got it understood. I'm recording 4 stations, and read at gaotd comments about the don't auto record checkbox. I went and turned that off, and then clicked to stop listening to the current station, and now I cannot listen to ANY stations, even though they all seem to be recording just fine. I figure I'm going to have to stop and restart the app again. This worked, but of course, the 4 songs I was currently recording are toast.

I'm also hoping that if I leave it running overnight, I'm not going to have a bunch of songs recorded and then deleted when I wake up in the morning. (That rumored deleting when the list gets full should be an option, devs) although this was not my understanding by reading cues from the program, just the gaotd comments. Also, I would prefer options for recycle bin or skipping the recycle bin and outright deleting. And finally, just to delete / purge fragmented songs from the list / drive. I know this can be done manually, but where's the fun in that?

I did occasionally do things on the computer that would cause the audio I was listening to, to skip. But when I played back, it sounded like it recorded ok.

I do like the following things: the dark theme, the fact that it can record, more than one station at a time, you can listen to any one of them or a completely different one (usually; see preceding paragraph), there are about 24,000 invisible stations (nice one, "Fred"), but existing ones are already generally categorized for you (no promises they're accurate!) and should be enough to get anyone started. I figured serious internet radioists already have a big station list that they can probably export and import(?). That would also be a nice feature for this program as well, if it is not already there. Hopefully I'll figure out how to add other stations - doesn't seem straightforward the first time I glanced at it.

Thanks all for your helpful inputs, and GAOTD and radioget for the neat offering.

Great sound from my Logitech 5.1 setup with this package. Had to run it through Media Centre to get it to recognize my sound card, though. Lots of stations available here in Canada. Have not checked how good the recording is yet though, but sound is great, interface nice--- but should let you pick sound card, or speaker/headphone choice.

I've previously saw this software at their site. Got my attention until I saw their pricing options. Not quite fair deals. Interface seems nice, even though many of yous say it is dark and unattractive. I don't mind much of the color. It is actually slick and sexy at the same time. Smokey black I say.

Many of you have mentioned some that I am using- Nexus Radio (the developers are actually located about 45 minutes from my resident.) Screamer Radio, RadioSure, purchased AudialsOne (the best one of all), TubeMaster++ (not a radio, but can record mp3, and video and also freeware), Readon TV Movie Radio Player (another excellent recording freeware) OnlineLive is another great one, but I don't think you can record from the program, provide by you an audio recorder to record them, Magix Webradio Recorder, ESP Radio Player (Enhanced Shoutcast Player) also records. I do not like RadioGet because of their pricing options.

There are many others that I've heard of like, Wondershare, Replay, Jaksta, and many others I believe. Don't forget people, to always watch during the installation. If it gives you an option to also download another thing, don't install it, especially if adware.

OK, got a chance to play around with this. It's not really an Internet radio player, it's more of an Internet podcast recorder.

The interface is one of the poorest I've seen. It is counter intuitive to any other program's interface. For example, when picking a station, the list that is created in the left pane is for recording. When you stop recording the item disappears. Apparently, you have to decide whether you want to have this as a favorite right away! Other issues, when clicking on play, nothing happens. No indication that there is a connection issue, or that the station is buffering, or anything. Meanwhile, there are several partial recordings going on. I would prefer an interface where you listen to a station, then decide whether you want to keep it on your favorites, and then decide when you want to record it. Keep all the favorites available so you can switch between stations, like on a real radio, rather than have the list items disappear when you hit stop recording.

Seems like this has too steep a learning curve to bother with. I would think that if you're just interested in pirating low quality recordings of certain artists, this would be useful. Just not for me, or at least not today.

I prefer Slacker and Pandora, and RadioGet would do well to spend some time with their interfaces to see how radio software should work. I'll try the other applications that have been suggested in the comments, too.

Thanks GAOTD for something completely different.

r0lZ r0lZ - "This program is missing an essential feature that any media/radio player should have: the possibility to select a specific sound card for the output.

I have 2 cards, one to play the Windows sounds via the little PC speakers, and a good quality sound card connected to my Hi-Fi system, to listen to music, MP3 and radios. Since this program cannot use my good sound card, it is totally useless for me, and I will continue to use foobar2000.

Sorry, but it’s a thumb down."

Not for nothing, but all you have to do is change the default sound card on the system tray. Not exactly a deal breaker or even a minor annoyance for most people.

If Radio Get's other features are better than foobar2000's, there's no reason to avoid this for that inconvenience. Although the name might be a deal breaker!

Advice to the publishers: Pay a marketer to come up with a real name.

RadioGet still running & recording seamlessly 7 hours later! I love it, put up four different stations to record, easy to click from one to another to listen briefly to what's playing. For volume, I always have the control in the tray anyway, just mute it when I want no sound. Nearly every station I have tried came thru; had one "connection" error. Cannot believe how many great stations & great songs are floating down onto my hard drive! Wow. I find the interface intuitive, easy to navigate, and personally like the dark grey background.

We've got thousands of LPs, and more than that number of cassettes & CDs, so I've not done much with online music before. I might try out the free RadioSure, too. But so far, for ease of use & wide selection of music, this is a great program. Thank-you.

The options are so limited, I can't get it to quit asking me if I want to do things. It stops working after I've played a few stations. Screamer Radio may have it's annoyances, but it's solid. However, SHOUTcast through Winamp is mind blowing. I wonder if the excitement about this program is the ability to record. Any recording program like Audacity can record what you hear.

This is the worst interface I have ever seen. Small dark gray letters on black background are unreadable for me. I never have trouble reading words on interfaces of other programs.

The rest of you must have better eyesight than mine since I see no other complaints on this subject, but think of the future when you are older with less than perfect eyesight and object now to color combinations that you may not be able to read someday.

Dog with fleas. Downloaded and installed with problems - IOBIT 360 immediately started spazzing out about different programs trying to run as unknown services. I installed with Returnil on, and am thankful for that. MANY of the stations do not connect. Slowed down computer drastically when playing. Computer still slow after exiting (services running in background). RadioSure is a much better pick.

I did not get past this statement in the EULA: "You agree that Ramka and its affiliates may collect and use installation computer environment information either provided by you as a part of support services related to the Product or detected and transmitted by the embedded code. Ramka agrees not to use this information in a form that may make this information public or known to a third party.

Looks like great software. A little worried about the 'detected and transmitted by the embedded code' statement. Please educate me if I'm being paranoid here.

Just FYI, DRM Removal (GOTD, July 22, 2009) is an earlier giveaway from the same developer, Ramka.

That shows us the people making RadioGet are not that restricted to the audio segment like f.e. the makers of Audacity are.

What's annoying to me once again is the hidden identity (ID protection). Serious, trustworthy companies will never do that!

To post #93.

Firstly, on my screen my post was #87. Not #63, so you may want to go find your reading glasses before proceeding.

Next, I have a question. Who peed in your cereal this morning?

I did not say I was an expert at anything, and my post was not directed at you in any form so I see no reason for your attack.

You call yourself a Happy Person??

Perhaps. Just not today I guess. I won't justify my original post for the sake of some troll who obviously came here to start an arguement.

This comment section is open (to EVERYONE) so that people can tell of thier experience with the provided software aye or nay.

I doubt people appreciate your brand of nonsense.

I know I don't.

what is SoundTaxi Media Suite and why was it installed also on my computer?
I just wanted radioget and instead got two programs.
When I click setup it went to install radioget 1.3.8 install then next then user agreement and then select installtion area to install it to and it installed both with no option to not install soundtaxi.
just thought I would tell you about this program.

Great program but I think it needs to have an option for the user to control when the program would start recording the songs.

I tested it on one radio station and found that the program seperated the all the songs a bit late (by 2 to 3 seconds in this case). This resulted in the beginning of every song being cut by that 2-3 second time interval. As you can well guess, that also meant every song contained 2-3 seconds of the next song.

Having a record delay feature that can be adjusted by the user (I'm thinking unit intervals of 1/4 or 1/2 seconds) would come in handy for calibrating the subtitle differences in timing for all those online radio stations.
Users should also be able to control timings in the other direction as well (in case the record timing is too early).

Hope this feature makes it on the next one!

Unless anyone can figure out "what we're doing wrong", with SO many complaints of SO many things that seem to be wrong with this program, I'm going to have to give up on it too...

I can't get the "Choose artist" function to even LOOK for any of the loooong list of Artists I put in there, and I can't even enter my favorite station under "Add New Station"; It wants it to already BE in a playlist, but it doesn't HAVE an "example"-playlist so you know how to MAKE one, and I've yet to find the one it IS using, that has a LOT less than "over 24,000 stations";

I think someone slipped & added a zero to that, at BEST.

And it just now completely crashed on me; It was (at least) playing, (but not recording, apparently), and I just noticed that at the end of the last track, it "went dead"!

At first, I thought that it may be due to my using the 802.11a/b/g/n WiFi circuit from the Library, (where I'm returning the favor for someone who filled in for me, at our local Theater, awhile back), but there's no one ON any of the PC's, and only one of those is even turned ON, so that's not it;

This is either a "dud" program, or I'm really missing something major that SHOULD be "right up front";

...and that "option" of the "Sound Taxi" thing came up, I heard the Windows "click" sound, and then it disappeared, so I didn't even have TIME to uncheck it before it "decided FOR me" that I "wanted" it! Now I'll have to run the UnInstallers after I find out what it put IN here that I've got to take OUT! Sleazy is something that GAOTD programs have never been BEFORE now, but between that and the "EULA" that says they're going to spy on you, (which isn't legal in most countries anymore anyway, so the entire EULA is "out the window"), makes this one of the WORST offerings I've ever seen from this site!

...Although I DON'T think GAOTD was aware of any of those "little details" when they accepted it to put up for us!

And, while it WAS playing OK, it was "chopping up" or "dropping out" too much, which I've never had happen either at home OR at the Library. (I've got the same service as the Lib. does, a 7Mbps downlink, only I'm only running two machines off of mine, while the Lib. can run as many machines as they've got, plus about 4 WiFi ports at the same time, but that's getting the "per machine" link speed "spread pretty thin", although today there's no one HERE, so that can't be it either, since I'm the only one on the WiFi, and there's NO one on the "hardwired" machines!)

Too many negatives and not enough positives for me on this one...

While I really like the Wondershare Streaming Audio Recorder, that was here a short time ago, I have one HUGE problem with that one too, and that's been echoed by other people in my little town in Midwest USA: It runs great, records great, BUT if you so much as move the mouse one pixel, it causes the playback, (recording or not), to "stutter" or "chop up", and the station I usually listen to streams the entire track to the PC before it even starts to play, so it's a "set it up & don't touch it" thing, and for THAT, it works great;

...So, I was really hoping that this offering today would give me something that would eliminate that ONLY "downside" to the Wondershare recorder, but today's program is much WORSE with the "dropouts" and the like;

I've had the same problems as many other people have mentioned here today, so it's not them, it's GOT to be the program;

Whether it's something with certain machine config's or what, I don't know, but I DO know that there were a few folks in the Lib. that downloaded it earlier, (and installed & ran it here, too, not realizing they shouldn't install it until they got it home!),
Which is OK, because they installed the old "Go-Back" program on every machine here, which "reverts" the machine back to the way it was before anyone had gotten on it, & I've got that prg on one of my own machines, and it was MADE for "Internet Cafes" and the like; We only allow downloading & external media here with the Librarian's consent & key (there's a floppy drive & a USB port on each machine, and one has a CD-DVD Writer, but they're all set up with a physical "bar" around the openings, that takes a key to open);

...and all of the people who were here, and who tried to get RadioGet to work, had various problems;

...Some on the same machine that's turned on now, (which is a "Power-User's Gamer-Deluxe", with 2 quad-core CPUs, more memory than I thought possible to cram into one box, a "killer" Nvidia video card, Multi-Boots 64-bit or a 32-bit OS or 2x32-bit OS's, or up to 4x16-bit OS's all running at once, etc.; It was setup by a "Guru" that had worked for the local DSL-ISP, but who left about 3 months ago), and some on other, "run of the mill" machines, and a couple of "cheapie Donated" machines...

...But even with all of the "horsepower" of the "SuperPC" that's the "primary" machine here, they still had all kinds of different problems, and they were on it "one at a time", while others used one of the other machines, (some find the "big" one rather intimidating!), and I'm using MY x64 laptop machine on that circuit's WiFi AP, so it's definitely NOT "just that machine";

Oh well, I'll just have to keep waiting, and maybe GAOTD will have "a month of recorders", instead of what so many people complained about last month, when it was several file-format converters in a row;

Thanks anyway, GAOTD, and please DO keep up the hard work you don't get enough thanks for!

Nice, so far, and sound quality is exceptional. Special thanks to those who gave great advice in their comments, especially about unchecking the boxes for continuous recording and installation of the media player trial. Didn't read as far as comment #64, and wish I had, even though I probably would still have installed it - didn't realize that it had made itself a service on my computer (listed as RG Service), and it's my only dislike about this software. Don't think it will keep recording as long as the "continuous record" is not on, but I'll check to make sure. Happy listening!

Would like to play with the skins and customize to my own preferences.

This may be on there, but I haven't found it yet. Is there a way to add new stations that are not listed?

Works well, just didn't have many sports talk stations, good for music though.

How do you get it to record (or even LOOK for) the Artists you entered into the list of "Preferred Artists" (or whatever they call it)?

And how do you enter a desired URL for an online streaming station in the list, when it doesn't seem to want to take the name of that station when I enter it into the "selection box" that has the playlists in it?

Do I need to enter it into a ".pls" text-file first, and THEN "pick it" from the select box?

This program is too confusing! Even with its main fault, I prefer the "Streaming Audio Recorder" that was offered here several weeks ago,
With the "main fault" being that even just moving the mouse would cause the music to be "chopped up" and made the recording useless, so you had to wait until you weren't doing anything else with the PC for awhile in order to use it, (even tho it's a VERY fast PC, that's one of the "Gamer-type" "hi-performance" machines!)

THIS program "chops up" what I CAN get it to play, (and hopefully to record), even though it's connected to a 7Mbps downlink, (with no other machines even turned ON that are connected to that link)!

Thanks anyway, but I'll just have to wait for something better, unless they come up with some decent instructions, better programming, easier editing & adding of "new stations", and getting rid of that "black-invisible" screen!

And that's on a 1080p Hi-Def screen & "top of the line" video card!

Appreciate the effort, GAOTD, but maybe concentrating back to the "Game Give Away Of The Day" would be better than some of the latest stuff that's come from this site;

I've been disappointed many times lately, and that never USED to happen, plus a LOT of us really miss the Games site!

(And while I never posted here before, I WAS hoping to find some comments that might have explained some of these things, but "No Luck").

Again, thanks anyway.

(I'd better figure out how to turn down the sound on this Library's PC, before they throw me out!)

hello,
unfortunately, this application is only marginally accessible, it required a lot of special keystrokes to find and activate the various items in the interface windows, and some items where not locatable at all.

i could find the main channel selection list, and scroll through it, and using the application's key i was able to either record or play the station, but that was about it, no volume controls and when a station was running i could not use my screen reader to work any other functions on my computer let alone the application.

that's a shame, the channel listings looked good, the sound was great, but a bit loud by default (again with no way to change them) and the installation and primary operation of the program seemed promising.

as usual, if the programmers wish to see if they can alter the program to make it more accessible, they can contact me at:
inthaneelf@alacorncomputer.com

sincerely,
BCU

Did anyone else notice this in the EULA?
(Which apparently "slipped by" the EULAlyzer we run on everything), which is included in the stuff that you had to "agree" to, before you'd get any further?

Quote:

Can anyone else say "Spyware" by another name?

RadioGet is easy to install and register: unzip the files, click on Setup. After installation, click on "BUY" on the left side (as the ReadMe says) and two license codes are displayed, after the next click an Activation code is displayed. I saved these three codes in a Notepad doc for possible future use. Don't forget to click on Settings & unselect the default of recording 10 stations automatically.

Program is easy to use, self-explanatory, pop-ups explain the functions when you hover over them. There is a clear PDF help file included. The 15 files and one folder (Styles, the skin) are under Program Files\RadioGet. I did not install the optional Sound Taxi; for those who did and are having difficulty uninstalling, perhaps the files are there.

I really like RadioGet, although I've not used any other internet radio software. Easily selected a genre (oldies), and it plays & records well. Navigation is simple, seems logically arranged.

Room for Improvement:
Playback of one recorded song reveals it IS recording a few seconds of the previous song so you would have to clip this off, if you wanted. Each MP3 is placed in its own folder; I would prefer they all be in one. Change default of 10 stations recording to 1 or none.

Thanks to #64 bine07 for the warning about it running as a service, "cheerfully filling the disc with records", lol. I'm having a ball listening to song after song I'd forgotten, but when I'm through I will check that out.

Thank-you RadioGet and GOTD. Over the past week I was glad to see Paragon and Wondershare in particular again, as we recently had to replace our computer.

Please, tell me somebody why RadioGet gives a connetion error message, while the RealPlayer works. I wanted a Celtic folk station, and the Radio Get had, for instance, a station Live ireland. But the connection was broken from start. I found their a site with a .pls file to import (http://my.liveireland.com/page/radio-1) It could not connect. Then I started RealPlayer - and everything is working now. Why?..

Hi folks,

I'm running VISTA 32 bit ad I ran into problems installing.

Even following the README instructions!!

For anyone struggling to activate this go to.>>

http://www.radioget.com/activate.php

Put in the two codes that the program gives if it asks for


MANUAL ACTIVATION


To make sure I temporarily disabled the WINDOWS FIREWALL from control panel ( I'm not sure if this is needed though for MANUAL ACTIVATION ).

To give you some idea the first code is the longer code from the program as per this screenshot.>>

http://i13.photobucket.com/albums/a272/u-might-want-this/RadioGetActivation.jpg

Your activation code will appear ( INSTEAD OF ) where the yellow box is in the above screenshot when you click the

REQUEST ACTIVATION CODE buton. :-)

I hope this helps some of you.

I small drawback is that you are also supplied with some software: "taxi-sound", but you can easily get rid of that. Otherwise thumps up.

I use Wondershare Radio Recorder ($19.95 I think) and this one compares very nicely with it.

Nice program that does what is says.

The only problem is that just about all of the tracks have the lead out recorded from the previous track played and often the lead in to the next too.

This stopped recording for me after about 10 songs. Anyone having the same issue? I removed and installed again still the same.
