Ahoy apps programmers !
I want to ask about StreamRadio program or applet - that cute radio station program. Basically I am satisfied with the program, I just have 2 question.
First I hope it is appropriate to opened this post under Software / Native - I did as in Depot I’ve seen the Github place is under HaikuArchive - so must be native app. I had not been a user of BeOS or Zeta in the past or alternatively nowadays until now, so I do not know from where originated. Yepp, possibly I could have read on mentioned Github page.
Aisumasen - I skipped before I opened this post creation dialog …
I always wanted to ask how can I add HaikuArchive repo, but it seems it is covered already one of them I have.
SO the questions :
Q#1 : Would some draw a receiver like “outfit” for Stream
I mean like first audio progs on Win 3.1 had a HiFi tower UI,
or for Winamp there were skins to select.
It should not be anything special - a nice receiver - even without sound parametric leds - just some lightning station seeker, a radio station is on lamp/led, quality signage, on/off button.
All the menus and working should be the same - just when it is on the desktop that would be some nice object - instead of the now simple, plain, pragmatical window. It should be sit on th desktop that way.
I do not request systray option, as that option still at every (only ported?) programs vomit fully the systray with question marks endlessly. Native ones for Desktop applets are great, but others this way very ugly.
Q#2 : Could someone transfer its essence into a replicant – as in case that works at Weather application ?
Honestly on Haiku I had to find a replacement for VLC features.
Play youtube videos : QMPLay2
For VLC it does not work anymore, on any platform even with fresh install.
The YT changes must be followed with Youtube.luac script,
and on Haiku it is not possible as ported that way the directory of all .lua files (lua directory) is not under user’s ~config/settings/vlc directory – to be able to modify it.
Listen streamed radio stations : I started to use Clementine. It is OK , but it is a bit much for listening radios - a way too more features it has.
This way I was happy when find StreamRadio. It is fine, but would be nice to see a beaty receiver like widget, or a similar replicant moreover.
I ask it kindly - has someone the challange been seducing to do it ? ;-))
That’s all folks ! 8D
