Radio Tray – Online radio streaming player

Radio Tray is an online radio streaming player that runs on a Linux system tray. Its goal is to have the minimum interface possible, making it very straightforward to use.
Radio Tray is not a full featured music player, there are plenty of excellent music players already. However, there was a need for a simple application with minimal interface just to listen to online radios. And that's the sole purpose of Radio Tray.

Radio Tray is Free Software, licensed under the GPL.

  1. I discovered RadioTray just a week ago and that is exactly what I’ve been looking for for a long time. It’s light on resources and it does what it’s meant to do: play radio.
    VLC for movies, QuodLibet for my music collection, RadioTray for radio, and I’m rock & rolling!

  5. It no longer works. Since shoutcast moved, none of the links preset or any from shoutcast work on radiotray. I have 0.7.2 installed.

  6. @VDMX is this your database or did you obtain it from another source? I would like to write up a little blurb about RadioTray and include a link to the database as it was well put together.

    I’m just searching new streams.

    Best regards.
