	<title>Jamendo</title>

	<p>Jamendo is a Creative Comments licensing oriented music distributor. It hosts audio
	files for individual musicians and artists. Tracks and albums can thus be downloaded
	free of charge. Yeah, imagine that.</p>

        <p>The streamtuner2 plugin for Jamendo is pretty limited at the moment. It just provides

	a quick overview over top artists and most listened albums from each genre. To browse


	the whole collections, better go to the Jamendo homepage or use Rhythmbox.</p>

	<title>Jamendo</title>

	<p>Jamendo is a Creative Comments licensing oriented music distributor. It hosts audio
	files for individual musicians and artists. Tracks and albums can thus be downloaded
	free of charge. Yeah, imagine that.</p>

        <p>The new Jamendo v3.0 is now utilized. It allows to list albums, playlists, and
        individual tracks by genre. Radios are a static list.</p>

        <p>Instead of favicons, streamtuner2 can fetch album or track covers. Thus the images
        are a bit larger, and retrieving them all via Channel &gt; Load favicons... takes a while
        longer.</p>

	<title>SurfMusic</title>

	<p><link href="http://surfmusic.de/">SurfMusic</link> is a user-collection of
        internet radios. It's grouped by genres, or locations / countries.</p>

        <p>It's both pretty large and rather quick to extract listings from. And it mostly
        includes station homepage links.</p>


        <p>The MusicTV and NewsTV sections also return results, but those are mostly
        web-based video stations. Some of them are outdated links even.</p>

	<title>Youtube</title>

	<p>Googles <link href="https://youtube.com/">Youtube</link> provides a quirky
        JSON API that makes browsing channels and genres feasible. This beta plugin
        provides a little overview, and usually retrieves recent video uploads.</p>

        <p>VLC can directly play Youtube URLs. For other players the default application
        setting wraps <link href="http://youtube-dl.org/">youtube-dl</link>, which is also
        used for recording.</p>

	<section id="apps">
		<title>Player application settings</title>
		<p>MIME types are elaborate identifiers for file types. audio/mp3 for example represents MP3 files, and audio/ogg
		means just OGG.</p>
		<p>The text entry fields can hold the application name of an audio player. Often the application name
		is just a lower case version of the program title, but you might have to look it up.</p>
		<p>Behind the application program name is a placeholder. If the audio player is invoked, this placeholder
		gets replaces with an URL (a http://..-Link) of the selected radio stream.</p>
		<p>It's introduced by percent sign, and followed by letters. %m3u for example generates a .m3u file. Most
		audio players understand that. Otherwise try %pls, which might even be faster because streamtuner2 doesn't
		have to download and preprocess it. %srv instead gives a direct stream link.</p>
		<p>The entry for */* is a catch-all. If the audio format of a radio station isn't know, this application
		gets called.</p>
		<p><title>Recording</title></p>
		<p>The last entry in the 'Apps' section specifies streamripper. It is used for recording stations. You

		might want to add some commandline -arguments here.</p>

	<section id="gui">
		<title>Display/GUI options</title>
		<p>Most options here a self-explanatory. The options for the favicons define if station entries should
		show little icons. Not all stations have one, so you might as well turn this off to conserve a little
		memory.</p>
		<p>The number of stations setting is not honored by all channel plugins. Often it's not possible to
		load more or fewer station entries. Some plugins have own settings (in the 'Plugins' section) even.
		For the major plugins this however limits how much scroll text appears in the stream lists.</p>
		<p>"Retain deleted stations" keeps old entries, when you reload a category/genre. Shoutcast often
		forgets stations or throws them out. If you keep this option enabled, these entries are kept in
		streamtuner2. Browse down in the stations list to still see them.</p>
		<p>It's possible to select a Gtk+ theme. But not all themes work with all Gtk display engines, and
		not all themes work with streamtuner2. You just have to try it.</p>
		<p>Remembering window states makes streamtuner2 not forget which channel and category was last
		selected. You can however disable this option, and instead manually save the window states/layout
		in the edit menu, if you want.</p>
	</section>
	

	<section id="system">
		<title>System info</title>
		<p>There are just a few options here, and some are hard-wired. Usually you don't want to change them.</p>
		<p>Setting another temporary directory might be useful, if you want to keep the temporary .m3u cache

	</section>

	<section id="plugins">
		<title>Plugin and Channel settings</title>
		<p>Each channel plugin can bring its own list of configuration settings. These are collected here.</p>
		<p>The heading for each plugin is actually a button, which allows disabling the plugin. Alas the state
		cannot be easily discerned with all themes.</p>
		<p>If you want to find out more about the short option descriptions (most settings are checkboxes),
		please have a look into the channels directory /usr/share/streamtuner2/channels/ and corresponding
		*.py files. These are readable, and sometimes contain more information.</p>

	<title>Searching</title>

	<p>There are two search functions. The quick search field is in the toolbar, and allows
	to highlight search terms in the current station list. The cache search is available
	through the <guiseq><gui>Edit</gui> <gui>Search</gui></guiseq> menu instead and provides more details.</p>







	<section id="cachesearch">
	<title>Dialog options</title>
	<p>You can get to the search dialog via <guiseq><gui>Edit</gui> <gui>Find</gui></guiseq> or <key>Ctrl</key>+<key>F</key>. Centrally to this dialog is the
	text field, where you can specify the phrase to scan for.</p>

	<p>Above you can check which channel plugins to inspect for the search term. Using this
	allows to limit the search to specific radio station directories, but usually you want
	to search them all.</p>

	<p>Below the search phrase text box, you can specifiy which station fields to look
	into. Often you just want to search the titles of radio stations. But you can also
	have the search occour in the description/playing fields. Alternatively you could
	just search the homepage links.</p>
	</section>

	<section id="methods">
	<title>Search methods</title>
	<p>Lastly, there are three search methods. You mostly want to use the <gui>cache search</gui>,
	which just scans through the station lists streamtuner2 has downloaded. Since you are mostly
	looking for something you had already seen, this will give you the desired results.</p>

	<p>The <gui>server search</gui> would try to do a live search on the directory servers,
	providing you with the most recent data. However, it's not implemented for all channel
	plugins, and therefore brings limited output.</p>

	<p>Use the button <gui>google it</gui> as last resort, if streamtuner2 didn't find anything.</p>
	</section>

	<section id="quicksearch">
	<title>Quick search</title>
        <p>Just enter text into the quick search box. Streamtuner2 will instantly highlight
