    <p>Reciva is an iPhone app, with a browsable station list. </p>

    <title><link href="http://punkcast.com/">PunkCast</link></title>
    <p>PunkCast is no longer maintained. It covered the NY music and tech
    scenes, but existing recordings are still accessible mostly (some are
    just weblinks howeever). This plugin is kept for nostalgic reasons;
    it was available with streamtuner1 as well. </p>

    <title><p>GrLittleRadioPlayer</p></title>
    <p>Great Little Radio Player is another Linux desktop radio browser.
    It comes with a default set of categorized stations. This plugin merely
    imports that list as static directory. </p>
................................................................................
    <p>The compound channel is a meta plugin. It can aggregate categories
    from other channel plugins on a per-category basis. You for example
    can mash Top40 or Classic genres from Shoutcast, Xiph, InternetRadio,
    Tunein, etc. Which avoids switching between channel tabs somewhat. </p>
  </item>
  <item>
    <title><p>File browser</p></title>
    <p>You can also browser local files with streamtuner2 using the file
    browser plugin. It must be configured with your music collection path.
    It's not a default plugin, because this isn't really what Streamtuner2
    is made for. There are way better local music collection managers for
    Linux. It's just here for convenience, and displays files just as any
    other channel list. It has no specific file management features, and
    won't get any. </p>
