Listening on Internet Radio with Ubuntu

Listening on Internet Radio while programming is a must, but the common player with Ubuntu, Rythmbox Music Player, does not have many preinstalled internet radio stations. Of course is there way to fix this, the below site shows you have to add the popoular swedish internet radio stations radioseven.se to Rythmbox.

But a better player that have SHOUTcast search engine preinstalled, which is the same search engine that ships with Winamp, is StreamTuner. The SHOUTcast search engine can almost find any internet radio station that will satisfy almost all music flavor.

And as always Ubuntu shine when it comes to install new programs.

sudo apt-get install streamtuner streamripper
