Streamtuner2 is based on concepts and the UI of the original streamtuner 0.99.99 by Jean-Yves Lefort.

  • The original was implemented in C with Gtk2 bindings, but already had the ability to harbour Python-based plugins.ยน
  • It was much faster and less memory-hungry.
  • Keeping the parsing up to date with the ever-changing directory services however wasn't feasible.
  • It still works with the Xiph/ICEcast directory, btw. Because their yp.xml didn't change so far.

The ST2 Google plugin was based on parsing rules from ST1. (It has been retired meanwhile though.)

ยน IIRC, I've originally even tried to reuse the original Python plugins. But that didn't pan out.
