<p>Radio-Browser is an ambitious community project. It collects as many
public internet radio stations as possible. It's free to use, has a well
documented API, with a simple JSON interface.</p>

<p>It's now the backend in many open source music players:</p>

  <item><p>Rhythmbox (for which it was originally intended)</p></item>
  <item><p>Streamtuner2 (obviously)</p></item>
  <item><p>RadioDroid (Android)</p></item>
  <item><p>DreamBox plugin</p></item>
  <item><p>Musicbox (Android)</p></item>

<p>Since v0.3 (in streamtuner2 2.2.0) you can now also share your favorite
stations directly. There's a new <guiseq><gui>context menu</gui> <gui>Share in

<section id="options">
 <p> Instead of browsing by genres, you can switch to languages or

 <p> Note that you'll have to use <guiseq><gui>Channel</gui> <gui>Reload Category Tree (F5)</gui></guiseq>
 again to update the category view.</p>

 <p> The API server option lets you predefine a more local cache to be used
 for station list queries.</p>

 <p> And "Minimum stations to list a category" can be used to filter out
 fringe/sparsely populated genres - on using <guiseq><gui>Channel</gui>
 <gui>Reload Category Tree (F5)</gui></guiseq>. Typically 15 should be okay,
 or 150 if you want to see only major categories. Else the category list
 would become around a thousand entries.</p>
