Changes in 2.2.2 (2020-05-xx)
-----------------------------

There's been a few deprecations:

 ยท youtube is now in contrib/
 ยท dirble, listenlive, delicast, streamlicensing, tuner2
   are gone 
 ยท don't package the contrib/disabled/ folder

Aux files
---------

 โ†’ Help files still need to go to share/docs/streamtuner2/help/
   unless you patch the source.

 โ†’ *.desktop as usual

 โ†’ and `icon.png` is the /share/pixmaps/ icon


Removed
-------

Most plugin PNGs may have been removed already. (Embedded
binary data may violate some distro guidelines(?), but hey,
fewer files are fewer files!)

And the streamtuner2.png logo is now source-embedded instead;
the `logo.py` module provides a `logo.png` base64-string.

The old `gtk2.xml` file is gone. It probably became obsolete

Also, hard dependencies are meanwhile:

  - python-requests (>= 2.0.0)

# pack: README=/usr/share/doc/streamtuner2/


Streamtuner2
============

ST2 is a browser for internet radio/streaming stations. It queries
directories like Shoutcast, TuneIn, MyOggRadio, Xiph.org. SurfMusic,
Jamendo etc. for music/video streams/collections.

It mimics the original streamtuner 1 to some extend.
It's however written in Python now instead of C.


Installation howto
------------------

If possible, prefer the package directly from your BSD/Linux distribution.


Due to a longer maintenance and release break, some still have older 2.0.x
versions however - whose channel plugins barely work anymore. If so, you
should install a newer version / manually.


Dependencies
------------

Running streamtuner2 requires Python and Gtk packages. Which nowadays are
installed per default. There's a few more Python packages required though:

Installation howto
------------------

If possible, prefer the package directly from your BSD/Linux distribution

over manually installing dependencies.
The PYZ package is the easiest option for local installations.

Use your distro package manager with e.g.:

  sudo apt-get install python python-gtk2 python-xdg python-requests ...

Or utilize Pythons local package installer even:

  sudo pip install requests
  sudo pip install pyquery


DEB / RPM
---------

There are rudimentary packages built as .DEB and .RPM version. Install
those if feasible. The dependencies may not match with your package
manager, and are somewhat incomplete. (See "Dependencies" section.)


PYZ
---

Other users may wish to try the new Python archive (.PYZ) instead. Which
requires little installation and can be run asis:

    python streamtuner2.pyz

You could even make this Python ZIP executable, and copy it in your PATH.
